sixties crush: brian wilson

Who could be a better Valentine's crush than Brian Wilson, the "pop genius" behind many of The Beach Boys' best love songs?

It's been fascinating for me to look through pictures of Sixties musical icons, whom I often only associate with their voices and melodies, and see how they carried themselves. In Brian's case, I'm delighted by the way he posed for photos with such hilariously deadpan expressions. While I may have no way to know what he's truly like, I like to think these images give us a peek into the man behind the music.

  2. You must see this:

  3. Scout - I understand, I feel like I know each of the Beatles personally but the Beach Boys seem like one harmonious unit half the time, haha - I must rectify this!

    Isa - Thanks so much, I can't wait to check it out!
