On Brian's Instagram there's a photo of him at Hawthorne HS (walking away from the building), being filmed. Does anyone know the story behind this? I was hoping maybe they were making a documentary or something.

Hawthorne HS tweeted a picture of him, looks like they changed a grade on one of his papers from his time there. Perhaps just a friendly visit?

Guess who dropped by HHS to appeal that grade Fred Morgan gave to him? Dr. Landesfeind signed the grade change! @BrianWilsonLive now has an A on that assignment! @beachboyslegacy  #OnceACougarAlwaysACougar

Glad to see him looking so well. I bet the rest from being off the road is doing him wonders.

Y'know, I've often wondered about this...supposedly "Surfin'" wasn't written until Brian was in college...but it's been said his very first composition was "Surfer Girl"...so maybe THAT was the actual composition that earned him an "F" (and now an "A")?

It looks like the form that Brian is holding says, "Surfin' USA demonstrated..."

Regardless, I think it's cool that they did this!

I'm wondering the same thing.  It's a cool story, but the OCD part of me has trouble with the timeline.  Was Brian writing about surfing while still in high school?  Maybe it was a chord progression or "Boogie-Woogie"-type  instrumental that evolved into Surfin' or something similar?

Fred Morgan's quote was:"Brian wrote a composition for me and it turned out to be 'Surfin.' That composition got an F, but it made a million dollars."

I think the key words are "TURNED OUT TO BE..."

Brian always talks about Surfer Girl as the first song he ever wrote, at 19.  Brian's memory with regards to dates is impeccable, so that would be 1961, a full year after he graduated.

I'm guessing that based upon Brian's recollection and Fred Morgan's quote, that what he submitted in high school was a prototype of what became a surfing song later on, perhaps a partial musical phrase that wasn't a fully-formed song.

Itís encouraging to see a picture of him walking by himself.  I remember when I saw him on the Pet Sounds tour, he looked to be really struggling.

Are you saying his F should have been changed to an incomplete?  LOL

He looks really good, happy and well rested.  I saw him live in early October, and that concert left me feeling more worried about him than anything else.

It's a great song, but Mr Morgan asked him to write something in sonata form. This is a slippery slope.
