About this title


From rear dust jacket flap notes: "For the first time, David Leaf tells the complete story of America's oldest and most beloved rock band - who literally created the joyous California scene of the early '60s - a mythical teenage paradise revolving around surfin', cruisin', drive-in movies and suntanned beach bunnies. The Beach Boys goes behind the group's happy-go-lucky image to reveal the tragic story of Brian Wilson, the tormented musical innovator who fell victim to his own talent - and how the group he created survived despite drugs and alcohol, divorce, and the death of Dennis Wilson to become a national institution." The Beach Boys is the enlarged edition of David Leaf's The Beach Boys and the California Myth, first published in 1978.
