All This Is That
By Michael deMartin
Quick note to thank Peter for his post below and for the excerpt from his great new book "Catch a Wave: The Rise, Fall and Redemption of the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson." I just finished it this weekend, and I think it's the one book you need to have that documents Brian's life and music. There are a few stories in there I never heard that had me laughing out loud - it's a great, great read. Also, if you've ever been to the website http://www.ultimatecharts.com, they have a poll on the top albums of all-time and Pet Sounds is at #1 (right ahead of the Beatles' Revolver, Michael Jackson's Thriller and Elvis' Elvis Presley. Also wild is that Brian's own SMiLE is #13. Pretty cool to say the least.
