Since that time Brian has continued his association with The Beach Boys on a recording basis as well as the odd reunion tour including the 50th Anniversary tour in 2012.
2015 has marked a triumphant return for Brian Wilson with a brand new solo release No Pier Pressure, as well as the release of Love & Mercy ? the commended biographical film about Brian’s remarkable life, which has opened up his music to a whole new audience.
