I am proud to say that today, Wednesday June 20, is my cousin's 65th birthday.
I am proud to say that this cousin is Brian Wilson, the founding member, leader and musical genius behind "The Beach Boys".
He and his cousin, Mike Love (who now leads the BB touring band) defined a generation with the songs they wrote and shared.
And after several trips to the end of the earth and back psychologically, he is back and perhaps better than he's been for a long time with a solo career.
Happy Birthda, Brian. I have always been proud to say that I am related to you.
