When talking about music, Brian Wilson is quick to mention The Beatles. 'I have Sgt Pepper's in my music room', he writes in That Lucky Old Sun. 'Paul played 'She's Leaving Home' for me on the piano when he visited me in the recording studio around April 1967. It knocked me out.'
That Lucky Old Sun was first performed at the Royal Festival Hall, London, in 2007. A year later it was developed in the studio. 'I wanted to put together a concept album,' Brian explains; and the result was hailed as a 'masterpiece' by The Times. This latest incarnation takes inspiration from Brian's original theme: a celebration of his life set against a moving tribute to his home state.
