Brian Wilson is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history and co-founder of The Beach Boys. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call him one of the most influential composers of the last century. He was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever… nine consecutive “gold” albums that featured such classics as “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Help Me Rhonda” and “California Girls”…just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on. And then there’s Pet Sounds; considered by many to be one of the greatest albums ever made; as one observer noted, its release was “Independence Day” for rock ‘n’ roll. In the summer of 2000, Wilson began a series of “dreams come true” events when he kicked off his acclaimed Pet Sounds symphonic tour, taking that studio creation to concert halls around the world, including our very own State Theatre.

A biographical feature film, Love & Mercy, about and produced by Brian Wilson is in theaters now.

Special guest Al Jardine is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter, best known as a founding member of The Beach Boys.
