Autopsy: The Last Hours of...

Dennis Wilson   
 
Dennis Wilson was the golden boy drummer for the Beach Boys. His good looks, adrenaline junkie attitude and musical prowess made him one of the great heart throbs of rock and roll. But how did an avid surfer end up drowning in less than 15 feet of water? Forensic Pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter examines Dennis's autopsy report to dispel the rumours, and reveal the real cause of the drummer's tragic and untimely death at the age of 39.

I find it really ironic that ABC is doing that documentary the night before this show, too.  Two nights in a row of Dennis on TV, maybe not for the best reasons, but you do know what they say about publicity...  And anything that helps to draw more attention to his music, right?

Beach Boy Dennis Wilson’s Death Examined On Upcoming Episode Of ‘Autopsy’
MUSIC NEWS March 10, 2017 ,

Autopsy: The Last Hours Of. . . Dennis Wilson will air on the Reelz network on March 18th at 8:00 p.m. The special examines Beach Boy Dennis Wilson’s premature death at age 39, following years of substance abuse issues. Wilson’s autopsy report is examined by forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter — with Wilson’s life discussed by Beach Boys co-founder David Marks, Wilson’s partner and best friend Ed Roach, and biographer Jon Stebbins. Check your local listings for stations.

Beach Boy David Marks grew up across the street from Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson in Hawthorne, California and shed light on what Dennis was like in his formative years: “Well, Dennis, everyone loved Dennis because he. . . he always made people feel like they were special. No matter who you were, or whatever. Y’know, the bum on the street — Dennis made him feel special. But on the other hand, you never knew what to expect from him. He could, just at the same time, punch you in the stomach for no reason. But, usually, he would beat kids up for a reason. He usually had a reason, y’know? And most of the time it was protecting Carl and me from, y’know, bullies. That’s when he usually stepped in to fight.”

Dennis Wilson drowned on December 28th, 1983, in Marina Del Rey, California just weeks after his 39th birthday.

Here's the full, unedited piece that ran in my syndicated feed. . .

BEACH BOY DENNIS WILSON'S DEATH EXAMINED ON UPCOMING EPISODE OF 'AUTOPSY' - (03/09/2017)

Autopsy: The Last Hours Of. . . Dennis Wilson will air on the Reelz network on March 18th at 8:00 p.m. The special examines Beach Boy Dennis Wilson's premature death at age 39, following years of substance abuse issues. Wilson's autopsy report is examined by forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter -- with Wilson's life discussed by Beach Boys co-founder David Marks, Wilson's partner and best friend Ed Roach, and biographer Jon Stebbins. Check your local listings for stations.

Beach Boy David Marks grew up across the street from Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson in Hawthorne, California and shed light on what Dennis was like in his formative years: “Well, Dennis, everyone loved Dennis because he. . . he always made people feel like they were special. No matter who you were, or whatever. Y’know, the bum on the street -- Dennis made him feel special. But on the other hand, you never knew what to expect from him.

And most of the time it was protecting Carl and me from, y’know, bullies. That’s when he usually stepped in to fight.”

Recently released is Son Of A Beach Boy, co-written by Dennis Wilson's oldest child, Scott Wilson. Although he idolized his dad, Scott Wilson -- now a proud father of two daughters -- explained that structure was not one of Dennis' attributes as a parent. We asked him how Dennis Wilson -- an incorrigible boy-man -- would discipline his own child: “He doesn’t. He never did. He laughed. He joked. ‘Scotty, get it together. Mom’s not happy. Come on, let’s go have a good time.' There’s a lot of stuff in my book about me going on tour with him and Terry Melcher, to Canada, to Hawaii, across the States, Charles Manson leaving a bullet for me, threatening to kill me. So on and so forth. It’s all in there. I didn’t sugarcoat nothin.’”

DID YOU KNOW???

In recent years, it's come to light that Dennis Wilson's greatest success was in co-writing the Joe Cocker hit "You Are So Beautiful" with Billy Preston in 1974, for which he did not receive a credit.

Witnesses who were there the night the song was written have gone on record claiming that Dennis contributed integral portions to "You Are So Beautiful".

Dennis went on to perform the song at nearly every Beach Boys show, starting in 1975, and told numerous people that he indeed did co-write the song.

FAST FACTS

Back in November, Beach Boys fans were in for a thrill during the final scene and end credits of Sarah Jessica Parker's new hit HBO drama Divorce, when Dennis Wilson's melancholy voice brought the episode to a close.

The song, "You And I," has long been beloved by fans of Wilson's breathtaking 1977 solo debut, Pacific Ocean Blue, which features the chorus of "no more lonely nights" -- a song that undoubtedly inspired none other than Paul McCartney seven years later for his 1984 Top 10 hit using those same four words.

"You And I," which Wilson co-wrote with then-wife Karen Lamm and longtime collaborator Gregg Jakobson, can be found on the critically acclaimed expanded 2008 reissue of Pacific Ocean Blue, which is now paired with Wilson's long unreleased second solo set, Bambu.

Although it failed to chart at the time, "You And I" served as the second single pulled from Pacific Ocean Blue.

"You and I/Friday Night" was the only single in the U.S.

"River Song/Farewell My Friend" was the UK and European single.

Thanks to Ed and Howie for the update and promo on the TV show.

Ditto here - I hope someone captured the video, since it's not apparently available online on the official Reelz site :/ I'd happily sit through some advertisements to be able to stream it if Reelz would get with the program...

I saw it. The program focused mainly on determining just what caused Dennis' death. Went through various scenarios, debunking most of them, including foul play or suicide.
The coroner guy made his own determination after studying the autopsy report. Don't know if anyone wants to know his answer (if anyone would consider it to be a "spoiler"). It's a fairly rare cause of death.
Good commentary by Ed Roach and Jon Stebbins.

One thing mentioned that I only knew of from reading Scott Wilson's book, although I assume long time BB fans already knew this: Dennis had a panic attack/breakdown while on tour, was sent home and was hospitalized briefly. Does anyone know when this took place?
Also, autopsy report indicated that Dennis had numerous old scars throughout his body. The coroner guy surmised that these scars came from Murry.

Sounds horrible.

Give me the BBC doc from 2008 any day.

I hadn't heard about Dennis having a panic attack. Brian's similar attack is well known, of course, maybe because it fits better with his image as the fragile member of the group. I had always thought Dennis's issues with growing up with Murry manifested themselves differently.

Watched the show last night on Reelz....interesting, particularly the feedback from Eddie and John. I thought their commentary on Dennis, while revealing relatively little new information, provided more of a "real" element and made the show feel very authentic. The actor who portrayed Dennis really had little resemblance to him, at that stage of his life. The re enactments of what lead up to Denny's death felt a bit strained. Would have enjoyed more of a panel interview with folks from that time. But considering Denny's death occurred almost 34 years ago, and we're still talking about it and watching shows like this really attest to how so many of us are still touched by Dennis. Great job Eddie and John, and all others who participated on this event. The doctor who performed the autopsy review seemed genuine, and I was glad they quickly eliminated thins like foul play etc....which seemed a bit ridiculous.
