Closer look at the genius Brian Wilson, 20 October 2005
Author: ebiros2 from United States

I don't think a better story of Brian Wilson can be told on a video (Brian might disagree but ....). This is just a great biography of Brian Wilson as himself and a musician. If Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington are American Bach and Handel, Brian Wilson is the Beethoven, and we're fortunate that we live in an age of video recording that his personal opinion can be seen and heard by everyone. His creative talent is obvious when we listen to his music, but it's even more so when you watch this video. He is generous at given other people like Phil Specter and the Beatles credit for influencing his music, but even so his contributions are unmistakable. Family members and friends adds to the comment about their relationship with Brian which sheds light on his time and life as a Beach Boy. A must see if you're a music fan and fan of Brian Wilson's music.
