"Brian Wilson is the lead singer of The Beach Boys. He went into seclusion after experiencing drug problems and a nervous breakdown. For about 3 years, he spent most of his time in bed."

Nine-thirty on a Tuesday night,

  • A great song about a great man.
  • Definitely prefer live. It's just more energetic.
  • Awesome.
