Wilson is even more impressive when you consider he's on the road with a reunited band supporting their new album, That's Why God Made the Radio, their 29th (!). Canada AM did a great interview with Wilson and Mike Love this week; check it out HERE.
As reporter Beverley Thomson notes, the album soared up the Billboard charts on the strength of rock-solid pop songwriting and those sweet, sweet vocal harmonies. It’s an awesome comeback for the pioneering pop group and we wish Wilson a fantastic day.
And just for giggles, here’s is some Brian Wilson trivia:
He taught himself how to play the piano by watching his father play.
He is deaf in his right ear.
He started writing songs at the age of 5.
The Beach Boys were voted the 12th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists of all time by Rolling Stone.
