I used the Searchbar and nothing came up so hopefully there isnt already a Brian Wilson Thread.

So Right now I am listening to a bootleg of SMiLE (the original beach boys one, not the recent solo album) and it is blowing my mind. Lets discuss arguably (and lets do just that) the greatest songwriter in pop rock history.

I wouldn't say he's the greatest songwriter in history. He's good, don't get me wrong, but he's far from the greatest.
My Gear:

MIM Fat Strat
Ibanez V70CE
Epiphone S-210
Danelectro '59 Factory Spec Reissue
Godin 5th Ave Kingpin

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe (x2)
Crybaby 535Q Wah
Marshall Regenerator
EHX Little Big Muff
BBE "Supa-Charger" Power Supply

I saw him at T In The Park last year, and when he played God Only Knows, it was one of the most amazing moments I've ever experienced

I am very very jealous, even though he isnt quite the singer he used to be.

Genius? Most definitely.
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

Naturally, he's done a lot and been through a lot. Although he was sitting behind a keyboard, he still had the crowd moving and cheering. Being the huge Beach Boys fan that I am, it was incredible to even see the man

Well, he played a lot of Beach Boys stuff and a lot of solo, and he may have been touring for SMiLE at the time (I know he definitely did after TitP).

I've seen Brian Wilson 3 times here in Australia. Pet Sounds tour twice. SMilE once. Everytime it blew my mind.


And I wouldn't hesitate to call him the greatest songwriter ever, either. As even Sir George Martin stated, he's the four Beatles rolled into one.


But let's not go there but enjoy some great music. Sail On Sailor. Wow. Flips me out everytime I hear it, play it, sing it. I love it. What a song.


Yep, I'm a HUGE fan!
