It never fails that every December 21st I remember it's Carl Wilson's birthday. In my book and I'm sure by a lot of others standards, he had one of the greatest voices of all time. His crowning glory being God Only Knows. Carl died way too soon in 1998. Interestingly there was a press release floating around last week about the remaining Beach Boys reuniting for a 50th anniversary tour. Nowhere were Carl or his brother Dennis mentioned. Both played such a big part in the success of that band. It was criminal to leave them both out.
I found this clip from 1984's TV show Solid Gold. Carl sounds amazing. He's dueting with host Marilyn McCoo. Strange. Yes.
