    Happy Birthday to Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson

    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.

    Thanks Sloop John B for giving the entire world Good Vibrations. You were definitely made for these times. Among many other wonderful attributes, you hold the distinction of being the primary insperation behind the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Akbum.

    Beach Boys Forever!

    Long May AMERICA'S BAND Wave!

    Happy Birthday, Hero!

    Be true to your schooool! My parents used to play this vinyl all the time. Now I enjoy it on my Ipod.
    Wow Barry, that is really cool!

    A big shout out and Happy Birthday to Brian Wilson. The Beach Boys have always been my favorites from the beginning. I was a wanna be surfer girl who never even learned to swim and couldn't get my blond hair straight. But I was in my heart, thanks to the Beach Boys music.

    And Barry ... you and Brian are cousins??? Wow! Now that is cool, dude.

    A very Happy Birthday to a truly great music legend, his contributions to contemporary music are incalculable.

    I've had the honor of meeting and working with him a few times, and seen him perform a few times more than that. As well as his late brother Carl and his nephews Justyn and Jonah.

    Thanks! yes, Brian and I share the same birthday. We can both sing in the shower. We are both over 6'4". That's where the similarities end, though pretty much!

    Happy Birthday Barry! And a Happy Birthday to Brian as well! My mom is a HUGE Beach Boys fan so I listened to them a lot through her while growing up. I want to get that new "best of" album that just came out where the band picked the tracklist themselves. Vh1 Classic has been advertising it quite a bit.
