9780060183134: Wouldn't It Be Nice?: My Own Story

Brian Wilson was the creative genius behind the Beach Boys. He turned a suburban California garage band into a group that took the world by storm with the sound of his songs, including such classics as "Good Vibrations", "California Girls" and "God Only Knows". Brian, Dennis, Carl, Mike and Al were the free-wheeling good-time guys who personified the laid-back, sunny southern California lifestyle. They were the most popular rock group in the world. But the cheerful image belied what was really going on. For the first time, in this long-awaited, no-holds-barred autobiography, Wilson describes his 20 year nightmare of drug addiction, alcoholism, obesity and mental illness. He spent 3 years alone in his room. He lost his family. And he early lost his life. Only Brian Wilson can tell the truth behind the rumours and myths about his complex and fascinating life. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is filled with shocking revelations about his violent father's abuse of him as a child; the bitter infighting among the Beach Boys, which continues to this day; the death of his beloved brother and drug partner Dennis; and the controversies surrounding Dr Eugene Landy, the psychotherapist whom Brian credits with literally saving his life.
