After forming The Beach Boys in the early 1960s with his brothers Carl and Dennis, his cousin Mike Love and schoolfriend Al Jardine, Brian Wilson steered the group to huge success around the world. They they scored a string of international hits between 1962 and 1966, including pop classics such as "Surfin' USA", "Fun, Fun, Fun", "I Get Around", "Help Me Rhonda", "California Girls" and "Good Vibrations". Brian Wilson also produced records for other artists, including Glen Campbell and The Honeys, but with nowhere near the success he had with The Beach Boys.
Brian Wilson's creativity reached its apex during the mid-1960s with the Pet Sounds album (which, according to Paul McCartney, inspired The Beatles' hit "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"). Various music polls have named it one of the greatest pop albums ever recorded.
Brian Wilson has two daughters from his first marriage to Marilyn Rovell, Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson, who would go on to musical success of their own in the early 1990s as two-thirds of Wilson Phillips.
Brian Wilson is back on the road again performing both newer material from his solo career, as well as his classic albums SMiLE and Pet Sounds with his latter-day band. On the U.S. Summer tour of 2005, Brian Wilson debuted a brand new song called "Walking Down The Path of Life". The harmony laden, spiritual ode was also performed at several Hurricane Katrina benefits in the fall of 2005. The song, a medley with "Love And Mercy" by himself and bandmembers, has also been released as a charity CD-single for victims of the hurricane.
