The New York Times Bestseller Mike Love tells the story of his legendary, raucous, and ultimately triumphant five-decade career as the front man of The Beach Boys, the most popular American band in history -- timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of "Good Vibrations.
The Beach Boys, from their California roots to their international fame, are a unique American story -- one of overnight success and age-defying longevity; of musical genius and reckless self-destruction; of spirituality, betrayal, and forgiveness -- and Love is the only band member to be part of it each and every step. His own story has never been fully told, of how a sheet-metal apprentice became the quintessential front man for America's most successful rock band, singing in more than 5, concerts in 26 countries.
Love describes the stories behind his lyrics for pop classics such as "Good Vibrations," "California Girls," "Surfin' USA," and "Kokomo," while providing vivid portraits of the turbulent lives of his three gifted cousins, Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson. His partnership with Brian has few equals in American pop music, though Mike has carved out a legacy of his own -- he co-wrote the lyrics to eleven of the twelve original Beach Boy songs that were top 10 hits while providing the lead vocals on ten of them.
The band's unprecedented durability also provides a glimpse into America's changing cultural mores over the past half century, while Love himself has experienced both the diabolical and the divine -- from Charles Manson's "family" threatening his life to Maharishi instilling it with peace. A husband, a father, and an avid environmentalist, Love has written a book that is as rich and layered as the Beach Boy harmonies themselves. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

For self defense reasons they therefore formed a group and because he could handle a baseball bat and was skilled at taekwondo they asked cousin Mike Love to join. While waiting for the next attack from Murray they would while away the long hours harmonizing old Four Freshman numbers.
Eventually Mike and Brian began to make up so Brian Wilson was one of nine brothers but his father Murray was extremely abusive and so by the time he was a teenager there were only two others left, Dennis and Carl. Eventually Mike and Brian began to make up songs, which of course were all about their own concerns.
There was some talk of merging the two groups but Manson insisted he should play lead guitar and he only knew two chords. In this he was 15 years ahead of his time. So at last the boys were free to roam during the day. They could look at girls and buy sunglasses. They discovered that singing in perfect four part harmony was a good way to get more sunglasses. All they needed now was a record contract.
As the Wilsons and Mike Love were all tall and handsome they decided to recruit Al Jardine, who was their window cleaner at the time, so that future audiences would have a point of comparison on stage. Mike Love was the first to realise that pop songs had up til then completely ignored a major Californian teenage obsession, so he began to write songs about the current craze of abseiling.
Soon his nasal tones could be heard from every transistor radio : Abseil is the only way, the only way for me now ab Ab Come on and abseil bah dip didit abseil bah dip didit View all 8 comments.

Mike Love -- the resentful rage-aholic, the schoolyard bully in the robes of a trailer park swami, the man who only meditates when he's not throwing diva-size tantrums about the way the music industry and the rock press and his own family have shafted him for over fifty years.
Mike Love -- all of the above, yet so much more. The tough guy from Dorsey High. The student of Chuck Berry and the midnight harmonizer on a thousand late night oldies in the streets of Hawthorne. The sheet metal apprentice who crafted a sound for summer and never got the respect he deserved because his cousin Brian perfectly fit the fake hippy media's idea of a "tormented genius. Mike Love is incapable of perspective on his own behavior, but he turns out to be a surprisingly shrewd observer of rock history and an insightful analyst of the Beach Boys sound.
His take on the legendary SMILE sessions is self-serving and heretical, but much of it has the ring of truth. It's only when he tries to whitewash his own well-publicized fits of rage that the reader may feel somewhat queasy. But the revelations are worth it! Mike's most legendary tantrum was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in What's interesting is that he acknowledges how angry he was that night, but has no clue why. In particular, he admits to resenting Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, but tries in a vague way to suggest it's because of "drugs and everything else" that the Stones represent.
But I have a different theory. Mick Jagger and Mike Love are mirror images of each other. Both are front men, not musicians. Both led mid Sixties bands that focused on songs about a lifestyle rather than love songs.
Both were instrumental in shaping how their band looked, and sounded, and what their music meant, even though they both relied on more gifted musicians to make the sounds. Incidentally, both bands featured musical geniuses named Brian who could play any instrument, and both burned out young.
Both became legends, beloved by the fans precisely because they couldn't cope with the rock lifestyle. What Mike Love clearly hates is that while the whole world knows that Mick Jagger made the Stones the world's greatest rock and roll band, nobody has any idea how much Mike Love contributed to the Beach Boys.

In Good Vibrations, Love builds a very convincing case of self-defense. Song by song, album by album, Love traces the output of the band highlighting the contributions of everyone in the band, with a noticeable lack of anything positive to say about Al Jardine. He credits Carl and Dennis Wilson for their input over the years and sadly repeats the stories of their declines due to drug abuse. All the Beach Boys are seen, warts and all, as being a dysfunctional batch of boys not especially good in their romantic relationships.
No surprises here. True, no one should take the book as the unvarnished truth, as Mark Twain would put it, and Love is sometimes rather thin on explanations especially discussing his disastrous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame speech. Let me suggest reading the audio edition, read by Love himself. You get a hint of his personality with all his short laughs punctuating some of his observations.

I have read a lot of Beach Boys memoirs. This sort of mentions that the band went to Holland to record an album, talks I have read a lot of Beach Boys memoirs. This sort of mentions that the band went to Holland to record an album, talks about how Surf's Up had good cover art and a Real Smile Track, and disses Love You in a paragraph. Against that, lots of good details about Why Everyone Is Down On Al Jardine, the big lawsuit over writing credits, and some of the creepy ins and outs of the Australian tour with David Frost.
Brian is, maybe properly, kind of a spectral presence throughout: Mike doesn't seem to have access to his thoughts at all, even in the early phases of the book where much is made about their powerful friendship. This feels right--I totally believe that Mike legit loves Brian, but has no capacity to relate to Brian, no capacity to realize that some of Brian's reserve and withdrawal isn't because EVILDOERS are keeping him away from his Real Best Friend Mike Love, but that maybe this is a normal weird dynamic friendships get locked into in adolescence, and that most people do not end up stuck in a famous band together that calcifies the soul of one's friendship into a horrible skeleton that you must drag around forever and ever, that your entire economic life depends on you singing about night after night for the rest of your days?
One of the best things to realize in the course of writing it and maybe its key element of Lasting Value is that there is a validity to Mike Love's point of view, that it is even a central element of the power and sadness of the Beach Boys sigil design. When the book got kind of rough creepy race stuff, shitty story about the band setting up Jeff Foskett with a trans woman of color because trans women are a fully joke you inflict on your bandmate to "josh him," etc.
Why did I never realize this before?
