Long Promised Road: Carl Wilson, Soul of the Beach Boys - The Biography Paperback – September 29, 2015
by Kent Crowley (Author)

No life in popular music touched on as many major musical milestones as that of The Beach Boys' Carl Wilson. While he is often unjustly overlooked as a mere adjunct to his more famous brothers Brian and Dennis, Carl was a major international rock star from his early teens.

The proud owner of one of the greatest voices in popular music--one that graced some of the most important records of the pop era, including 'God Only Knows' and 'Good Vibrations'--Wilson was also one of the first musicians to bring the electric guitar to the forefront of rock'n'roll. His musical skills provided The Beach Boys' entree into the music business, from which he then stewarded their onstage journey through the ups and downs of the 60s to their comeback in the 70s and into the role of 'America's band' in the 80s. Along the way, Carl quietly endured his own battles with obesity, divorce, substance abuse, and ultimately terminal cancer, all the while working to protect his family's business and legacy. This major new biography reveals the true story of modern rock'n'roll, lived from the center of the most important decades of popular music.

Na da bin ich mal gespannt! Eine Bio über Carl gibt es ja bislang nicht (meines Wissens), wäre schön, etwas Neues über ihn zu erfahren. Er war das Herz der BBS.

Kennt wer die Reihe "Beach Boys Archives" (insgesamt 7 Bände, 2013 - 2015 erschienen)? Augenscheinlich ist das eine Sammlung von Printartikeln, Anzeigen etc. - lohnt sich das?

"Wilson was also one of the first musicians to bring the electric guitar to the forefront of rock'n'roll".

Nach diesem Zitat zu urteilen, scheint der Autor ja ein absolute Musikkenner zu sein!!!
