Dennis Wilson – Drunk Diving

Drunk driving kills plenty of people every year, but Dennis Wilson may be the only drunk diving fatality we’ve ever heard of. The Beach Boys drummer’s fast, volatile life included five marriages to four different women, as well as the typical excesses of rock stardom, including a serious addiction to alcohol. But he liked to relax and get away from it all on his yacht at Marina Del Rey.

The drummer and singer drowned on Dec. 28, 1983 while diving from his yacht after drinking all day. Wilson was reportedly trying to recover some items he had thrown overboard three years earlier. He was 39 years old. To add insult to fatal injury, his drum chair was taken over by John Stamos from TV’s ‘Full House.’
