Brian Wilson is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures. He is the main creative force behind many cherished recordings in rock history and one of the most influential composers of the last century. He earned nine consecutive "gold" albums that featured such classics as "Surfer Girl," "In My Room," "I Get Around," "Don't Worry Baby," "God Only Knows," "Help Me Rhonda," and "California Girls..." just to name a few. Throughout his career, Brian has received numerous honors, including Grammy awards, being inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of the Beach Boys, and the Kennedy Center Honors.
You will meet Brian at Capitol Studios during a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception and then join him for a Playback Session of the album "Pet Sounds." Your session will take place in Studio A, in the iconic Capitol Records Tower, which was the home of the Beach Boys when Pet Sounds was originally released. In Studio A Brian will share his stories and insights about the recording. Following the Playback Session Brian will perform his iconic song "God Only Knows," and talk about his fascinating career and the motivation behind his work and artistry during an interview session. Guests will also have an opportunity to take photos with this international music legend.
