The Beach Boys became international superstars singing about ‘cars and surfing’, yet only one of them actually surfed.
Dennis Wilson, the middle brother of the 3 Wilson boys was the only member of the band who surfed. Dennis was not the lead singer or the main songwriter of The Beach Boys but to many he was the heart and soul of the band and the image.
Dennis would have turned 73 years old today if he was still with us. We lost Dennis on Dec. 28, 1983 when he drowned in the Pacific Ocean. He was only 39 years old.
So many wanted to be like him. The music, the cars, the girls and the surf.
Happy Birthday Dennis. You created on hell of an image.
