I recently saw this on YouTube. It was interesting, but certain things I never new about before. I know they got some facts wrong. They claimed Dennis came up with the name Beach Boys. Not true. But it also said Dennis had a nervous breakdown in his early 60s. Is this true? We all know Brian has had them, but never knew Dennis did. A lot of the 'mystery' surrounding his death was old news. The YouTube channel that shows this is called Mr Galikonacous. Not sure I spelled the last name right.

Scott Wilson's book had a reference to Dennis being sent home from the tour during the 60s and that he was distraught. I don't know any more than that.

Found this, but it's from 1976:

The Get Down never heard with Murray Saul and Dennis Wilson

It's always interesting to discover something new. After all these years of watching documentaries and reading all the books, even the ones on Dennis,  I was never aware of Dennis having nervous breakdowns. Maybe I had read it and forgot about it.

Sounds like the same video that turned up on another video streaming site that's literally just a renamed rip of the Autopsy: last hours of Dennis Wilson documentary from 2017,  only with the uploaders credits tagged onto the beginning & end.

Earlier discussion: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php?topic=24916.10

post with links to grabs from Scott's book re Dennis having breakdowns/panic attacks http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,24916.msg606781.html#msg606781

random oddity - there's contemporary news reports/obits on Dennis from '83 claiming he came up with the name Beach Boys  so that's an historical mistake.
