1 Brian Wilson

Brian Douglas Wilson was born 20 Jun 1942, in Inglewood, Los Angeles County, California, as the eldest of three sons of Murry Gage Wilson and his wife Audree Neva Korthof. With his two brothers Dennis Wilson and Carl Wilson, their first cousin Mike Love, and a high school friend Al Jardine, they formed The Beach Boys and recorded their first single Surfin. He wrote Surf City and recorded it with Jan and Dean. Brian was an amazingly prolific songwriter, writing or co-writing almost all The Beach Boys hits, over a multi-decade career. For a taste of their most popular visit my article The Beach Boys on YouTube.
