I couldn't find this via the search function, so excuse me if it was already posted. In that case, please remove this thread.
By accident I found this article from the Guardian, posted in 2013.


Dennis Wilson: The Mayor of Washington Boulevard

In our latest visit to the archives of Rock's Backpages, we bring you a 2008 piece by Bill Bentley about the troubled later years of Beach Boy Dennis Wilson, who died 30 years ago this month

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Thanks for posting. I remember reading the title on some thread at the time but not reading the story, possibly paid content.

Great Brian quote: "He (Dennis) might have looked out a different window than me and Carl," says Brian Wilson today, "but he had the biggest view."

All of them had a spectacular view. So glad we've had them in our lives.

It may be great but definitely Brian isn't right. Judging by Dennis' music, wouldn't say he's got "biggest view".
