Happy Birthday Brian Wilson!

Happy birthday, Brian Wilson! The brilliant mastermind behind some of the most enduring music of our time turns 70 years old today. Last night, BBP’s Perry Schwartz and myself had a chance to see Brian and the reunited Beach Boys in concert and it was a treat. Having Brian back harmonizing with his longtime bandmates was something special – they truly have a chemistry unlike any other band, and it’s one that fans around the world are still embracing. The group’s latest studio album, That’s Why God Made The Radio, just debut in the Billboard Top 200 chart at number 3 – pretty amazing for a group of senior citizens!

To celebrate Brian’s big 7-0 check out this classic from Brian’s Pet Sounds live DVD after the jump. It’s not the Beach Boys, but it’s the song that probably sums up Brian the best.
