Wilson, along with brothers Carl and Dennis, cousin Mike Love and family friend Al Jardine, formed the Beach Boys in 1962. After a string of hits celebrating surfing, cars and girls, Brian Wilson found himself heading in a different direction than his bandmates, with his music and recreational pastimes.

He withdrew from touring in 1966, retreating into the studio where he created Pet Sounds, one of the most highly acclaimed albums of the rock era. After it was completed, however, he sunk into a well-publicized morass of depression and drug abuse until making a difficult recovery. He returned to the studio and stage in the early 1990s.

Wilson undertook an extensive tour last year, appearing with local symphony orchestras and performing Pet Sounds in its entirety

He no longer performs with the Beach Boys, which continue to tour with lone original member Mike Love.
