With my good friend Tim Bovaconti I’ve written and recorded a loving tribute to Brian Wilson and all he has meant to me... I bought Surfin’ USA in 1963 and so I first entered Brians’ world. I have always loved harmony singing and was a big fan of rock ‘n’ roll and doo wop, so I found their music intoxicating. As my interest in arranging, recording and songwriting grew it seemed there was always some new texture or idea to be learned from those records. The Beach Boys have had a lot of personal ups and downs over the years, but there was always that magical music.
I hope you enjoy this music in the spirit in which it was written.
