Brian Wilson Talks About His Tour
Following the release of Pet Sounds, the 75-year-old musician expressed what it is like to tour with his bandmates again.
"It's been 20 years since we first started touring again. When we were all younger we didn't know how to play as good as we do now. We've had a lot of practice and became better players than we were back then," said Wilson.
In his book, I Am Brian Wilson, the singer praised his bandmates and dished on what his memoir is all about.
"I like playing with my band more than I liked playing with the Beach Boys because they're younger and they're better players... I told the truth, the whole story of my life. It was all about how I learned to make music and the history of Beach Boys," said Wilson.
