Jan Berry and Brian Wilson collaborated on roughly a dozen hits and album cuts for Jan & Dean, including the number one national hit, “Surf City” (1963). Subsequent Top-10 hits for Jan & Dean included “Honolulu Lulu,” “Drag City,” “The Little Old Lady From Pasadena,” and “Dead Man’s Curve” — which became eerily portentous when Berry received severe head injuries in an automobile accident just a short distance from Dead Man’s Curve in April 1966.
This accident marked the end of their commercial peak, during which they’d scored an impressive total of 26 chart hits over eight years. The group finally stopped performing after Jan Berry died in March 2004.
