Today marks the 15th anniversary of the passing of The Beach Boy's co-founder, Carl Wilson. You'll know Carl by his lead vocals on "God Only Knows", but to us BB fans, he was so much more. Certainly the glue that held the band together for much of its history.
In 1998, Carl recorded an album with Gerry Beckley (America) and Robert Lamm (Chicago) called, Like A Brother, which was released in 2000, two years after Carl's death. You can check the album out here - Beckley Lamm Wilson – Like A Brother. "I Wish for You" is my favorite.
One other Carl solo you might not have heard is "Heaven". Simply gorgeous.
We miss you - and love you, Carl.
I feel so strongly about graffiti in public lavatories that I signed a partition - What? Why are you looking here? The joke's self-contained in the headline. And it's GOLDEN.
