If you missed Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds show at the Lynn Auditorium in April, here’s your second chance.
5 Questions is a series by Steve Duffy –
The former Beach Boy and one of the most innovative and influential creative forces in popular music is bringing one of the most iconic studio albums of all time to the Orpheum stage.
SD: You’ve been playing Pet Sounds Live solo for this tour. How has this experience been for you?
BW: It been a great adventure and a lot of fun! We have been on tour for the last year and half. I’m still having a great time performing and seeing the fans.
SD: Did you have any idea that Pet Sounds would become such an iconic album when creating it?
BW: When we first recorded it, I didn’t think it would be successful. It took years before it caught on.
SD: Life can’t be easy being for someone who has written some of the greatest songs in music history. How have you been able to cope with the ups and downs of fame?
BW: Fame came very early in life for me. There was no roadmap on how to navigate it. I always just tried to do my best and roll with the flow.
SD: What’s your happiest memory of being part of the Beach Boys?
BW: The evening we recorded “Good Vibrations.” I still remember it like it was yesterday. Those are the kind of memories that just never fade away.
SD: Are you working on new music?
BW: I plan on working on a new rock and roll album later this year. I love creating music and I don’t think I will ever stop.
