Brian Wilson's apparent nervous breakdown on a flight to a Houston concert by the Beach Boys in December 1964 ended his onstage appearances for more than a decade ... and opened the door for some of the most important music of the '60s.
Jeff Beck will team up with Brian Wilson for an 18-date tour this fall. The run begins on Sept. 27 in Florida before working up the East Coast and then zigzagging across the country for a final date on Oct. 27 in Akron. Wilson's fellow Beach Boys Al Jardine and David Marks will also join him onstage.
Last year, as the Beach Boys' 50th-anniversary tour wrapped up, Mike Love announced that the group would be hitting the road again, but without original members Al Jardine, David Marks and leader Brian Wilson. This pretty much amounted to being fired, Wilson said at the time. ''I don't know how that sacking controversy started," Love recently told The Daily Star. "I'd love to work with Brian again."
Brian Wilson is recording his 11th solo album, which will be released through Capitol Music Group, the company that put out the original Beach Boys hits more than 50 years ago. His longtime bandmates Al Jardine and David Marks will join him on the record.
Not one to let Mike Love have the upper hand, Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson is hitting the road with fellow Beach Boys members David Marks and Al Jardine this summer. The trio have announced seven dates (listed below), with a promise of more to follow.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Def Leppard would be joining Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas from April 4 through 7. Just yesterday, two other music heavyweights have been confirmed for the April 18 through 21 edition of the camp: Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck.
