Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson’s New Album No Pier Pressure Plus Love & Mercy, The Movie of His Life


“God Only Knows” is Brian Wilson’s favorite Beach Boys’ song. There are parts of the new Wilson biopic Love & Mercy, out June 5th, that were hard for him to watch. Those are a couple of things we find out today in our conversation with Brian Wilson. We also talk about and hear music from No Pier Pressure, his new solo album. And there are some extraordinary exclusive live performances Beach Boys classics!
