I'd never seen this incredible Brian Wilson quote from 1991 until a moment ago, when I read the Washington Post article it appeared in:

"They probably want control of me," says Brian Wilson of his family's petition [to appoint a conservator for him], "but they will not get it, they will not get it. I say let sleeping dogs lie. If the formula works, don't goof with it. That's one of my major philosophies in life. It's been working."

Was this a cleaned-up version of Mike's infamous advice from decades earlier? Or did this quote give rise to the stories about that infamous advice?

(I prefer to believe a third explanation: Brian Wilson is a time traveler, and he gave this interview after traveling to the 2010s and reading way too many Beach Boys message boards.)
