DumbAngel erstellte das Thema: Dennis Wilson BBC-Doku
Ende Februar wurde eine hoch gelobte Doku über das interessante Leben und letztendlich tragische Ende von Beach Boy Dennis Wilson (der mittlere der drei Brüder) ausgestrahlt. Momentan kann man sich auf dem chinesischen youtube die 1-stündige Doku ansehen. Wie lange das on bleiben wird, weiß ich nicht. Glücklicherweise wurde das Hauptaugenmerk tatsächlich auf Wilson gelegt und nicht auf die Beach Boys und die, der Band eigenen, Legende. Vom Surferleben zu den Beach Boys, über Charles Manson, Drogen, Sex, dem großartigen Solowerk, Karen Lamm, Christine McVie und der kurzen Ehe mit der unehelichen Tochter seines Cousins (Beach Boy Mike Love) wird alles angeschnitten. Man besucht auch wichtige Schauplätze aus Wilson's Leben, etwa das Dock, in dem er ertrunken ist.

Beach Boy Dennis Wilson’s Death Examined On Upcoming Episode Of ‘Autopsy’
MUSIC NEWS March 10, 2017 ,

Autopsy: The Last Hours Of. . . Dennis Wilson will air on the Reelz network on March 18th at 8:00 p.m. The special examines Beach Boy Dennis Wilson’s premature death at age 39, following years of substance abuse issues. Wilson’s autopsy report is examined by forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Hunter — with Wilson’s life discussed by Beach Boys co-founder David Marks, Wilson’s partner and best friend Ed Roach, and biographer Jon Stebbins. Check your local listings for stations.

Beach Boy David Marks grew up across the street from Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson in Hawthorne, California and shed light on what Dennis was like in his formative years: “Well, Dennis, everyone loved Dennis because he. . . he always made people feel like they were special. No matter who you were, or whatever. Y’know, the bum on the street — Dennis made him feel special. But on the other hand, you never knew what to expect from him. He could, just at the same time, punch you in the stomach for no reason. But, usually, he would beat kids up for a reason. He usually had a reason, y’know? And most of the time it was protecting Carl and me from, y’know, bullies. That’s when he usually stepped in to fight.”

Dennis Wilson drowned on December 28th, 1983, in Marina Del Rey, California just weeks after his 39th birthday.

Irgendwie ist der Titel "Autopsy" schon unangenehm reißerisch.

Ich kenne Ken Sharp sowohl vom FTD Buch Writing for the king als auch vom Kiss Buch Nothin' to lose. Beides großartige Werke, insofern werde ich mir das Dennis Wilson Druckerzeugnis wohl zulegen, falls es nicht zu teuer ist.

Jim Murphy ("Becoming the Beach Boys") postete dies auf dem SmileySmileBoard:


Ken Sharp’s long-awaited new book Dreamer: The Making of Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue is now available for pre-order.

The book is available in soft-cover for $35 plus shipping and in a very limited signed hardcover edition for $55 plus shipping. The book will only be available directly from Ken and you can order your copy by emailing him at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!

From Ken: “40 years since its initial release, Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue, the first solo album by a member of the Beach Boys, is widely regarded as a cult masterpiece, a stark confessional vehicle of naked primal emotion and deep pain. Dreamer: The Making of Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue is the first book devoted to the creation of this seminal rock and roll classic.”

“Via extensive interviews conducted with many of the record’s main principals numbering songwriting collaborators, engineers, session musicians, record company personnel, management, fellow Beach Boys, friends, family, music writers and more, the 416-page book is structured as an oral history and chronicles the fascinating back story behind this extraordinary album. Decades on, the album is eliciting retroactive praise and accolades with the 2008 CD reissue selected by the likes of Rolling Stone, Mojo and Uncut as reissue of the year.”

Apart from being a great all-around guy and tremendously talented writer and singer-songwriter (check out his music on his website ( www.ken-sharp.com ), Ken is one of the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic Beach Boys fans I have ever met. I did not know Ken while I was researching and writing Becoming the Beach Boys, 1961-1963. But I certainly knew of Ken. He was hard to miss. His name kept coming up time after time after time. In Goldmine, Record Collector, Rock Cellar. His superb rock journalism and insightful interviews with the Boys were consumed, re-consumed, cross-referenced, scribbled on index cards, scrawled across dry erase boards, appreciated, and generously quoted (and footnoted).

I recall thinking, “If I ever meet this guy Ken Sharp, I have got to thank him for these essential, ground-breaking interviews.” He always asked the right questions. Well, I think it was a week or two after Becoming was published when I got the first nibble of interest. The phone rang and it was Ken. He could not have been kinder or more enthusiastic about the book. Writing can be a lonely, solitary road, and you’re never quite sure if you have anything worthwhile. Ken was such a contagious shot of literary/music adrenalin, and we spoke for a long time about the Boys, the early days, and music. We finished speaking and arranged a time for a follow-up interview that appeared in Goldmine. When I hung up the phone, I remember feeling the first hint, after nine years, that maybe I had written something worth contributing to the Beach Boys story. It was a great, gratifying feeling. So, thank you, Ken. You may never fully know how much that meant to me.

And SOON . . .we will be reading and enjoying Ken’s Dreamer: The Making of Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue. What a terrific gift for every Beach Boys and Dennis Wilson fan. 416 pages dedicated to Dennis’ stunning debut. Make room on your bookshelf.

DEFINITIVE BOOK PUBLISHED ON BEACH BOY DENNIS WILSON'S 'PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE' - (12/18/2017)
by Howie Edelson

Noted rock writer Ken Sharp has just published Dreamer - The Making Of Dennis Wilson's 'Pacific Ocean Blue.' Over the course of the past five years, Sharp -- who's best known for his works on the Raspberries, Elvis Presley, David Cassidy, John Lennon, Cheap Trick, Kiss, and the "Wrecking Crew," among many others -- has interviewed nearly everyone involved in the late-Beach Boy's 1977 masterpiece, which marked the first solo album released by an active member of the group.

Through Sharp's interviews -- mainly new, but also featuring archival bytes from Wilson and others -- the story of Pacific Ocean Blue comes to life with countless in-depth tales of the music's composition, recording, Wilson's personal life, the promotional of the album, its aborted tour, and his relationship with the key people -- the Beach Boys, his then-current and former wives, bandmates, assistants, record label reps, fans, and collaborators -- that all aided in delivering the album. Dreamer not only features a multitude of never-before-seen photos, but Sharp provides insight into nearly every song Dennis Wilson ever wrote. The book also features an exhaustive sessionography.

Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue was released on August 22nd, 1977 and peaked at Number 96 on the Billboard 200 albums chart during its 12 week run. In June 2008 the deluxe reissue of Pacific Ocean Blue and its unreleased 1978 follow-up, Bambu, which was issued to unanimous critical acclaim -- and earned the nod for "Best Reissue" from Rolling Stone, Mojo, and Uncut magazines.

Lindsey Buckingham became friendly with Dennis Wilson when Wilson began dating Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie. Wilson was a frequent visitor to the band's recording sessions for 1979's Tusk, which coincided with Wilson abandoning his own album Bambu. Buckingham recalled to us his thoughts on Dennis: "He was kind of a lost guy. He was a very talented guy -- way more talented than he had the structure to be able to exhibit. Y'know, he had a lot going on without the tools to sort of get there -- that's my opinion anyway. He was a real sweetheart. He was also a rogue. Y'know, he was that rogue element."

Dennis Wilson's best friend, photographer and filmmaker Ed Roach, actually inspired the classic line in the album's only domestic single, "You And I" -- "you open up my wallet and dust falls out" -- and told us that he pleaded with Dennis not to back out of the planned solo tour in support of Pacific Ocean Blue: "He was very nervous about going out as 'headliner,' as 'the act,' y'know? I mean, the lack of confidence in himself really came out. He could mesmerize an audience, but as far as being the one to draw them in and being the main act to come out -- it scared him a little bit, I think. And I really think he was very leery of ever actually doing it. And it was such a shame because that first tour was (going to be) so beautiful. The places he was going to play and the sizes and the houses and everything, and the show that he had conceptualized and that he put together."

West Coast music historian Jon Stebbins, who wrote the groundbreaking 2000 biography on Dennis Wilson called The Real Beach Boy, explained one of the many reasons why Dennis abandoned his 1977 symphonic tour in support of Pacific Ocean Blue: "I think he wanted 23 pieces -- at least 18, he wanted. It was going to be all of his boys. I think he was going to play some piano and come up front and sing some. It was going to be a whole deal, y'know? They were rehearsing 'What's Wrong,' 'Rainbows,' 'Pacific Ocean Blue,' 'The End Of The Show' -- they were probably going to do that as the last song, and he'd do 'You Are So Beautiful' for the encore, I'm sure. But he wanted strings, he wanted bass flutes, y'know? (Laughs) He wanted all that stuff and they wouldn't give him the budget for it."

Dennis' primary collaborator and producer for Pacific Ocean Blue, Gregg Jakobson, recalled to us that at times he was forced to take on an almost paternal role with Dennis: "Yeah, I really did try to take care of Dennis, and I always tried to play that role. Y'know, Dennis needed someone to look after him -- not quite clean up after him -- but to try to just stay ahead of him, and not stay behind him; where a lot of his friends stayed -- I tried to stay in front of him."

Carnie Wilson, who is Brian Wilson's daughter and Dennis' niece, says that she thinks about her uncle pretty regularly: "I had a crush on Dennis, he made my stomach feel funny. And my memories of Dennis was, like, him getting on the ground -- like he was proposing to me -- kneeling down in front of me whenever he saw me and he would kiss my hand in, like, 20 places. That was his thing. And he was, um. . . he was wild and sexy -- y'know, wild. Just out there!"

Carl Wilson's younger son Justyn Wilson was asked what he remembered most about his Uncle Dennis: "Just fun stuff, y'know sitting in his little, like, lounge area behind his drum set. Like a little seating thing for people to hang out. He would have just like (laughs) a little spot to hang out (laughs) or like chill, maybe some pillows or y'know. . . (laughs). He was just like a fun guy as much as I can remember. And I remember there was that other side where you're kind of not so sure, (and) it can maybe be a little scary or frightening, 'cause he was like on the edge, y'know? But in just a very real way."

Beach Boys co-founder Al Jardine told us that it took him years to finally fully appreciate Dennis' work. He says that he's consistently amazed at the depth and beauty of Dennis' songs: "Oh, he was the most underrated member of the band in those terms. His compositions, I think, were stronger, and they got stronger and stronger as we went along -- as he went along -- until obviously he couldn't go any further. And I just think that given time, y'know, he would've been the. . . probably the best composer in the band, outside of Brian, of course. Yeah, he just had that natural, intuitive instinct about music and lyrics. He always. . . he was the kind of guy who could get to the point without beating around the bush and, y'know, could just nail it."

In 2015, Dennis Wilson's oldest child, Scott Wilson published his memoir, Son Of A Beach Boy. Scott was adopted by Dennis as a toddler when he married his mother Carol, and although not a blood relation, Scott was the only one of Dennis' brood to have spent a considerable amount of time with him over the years. Today, Scott, who's battled many of the same demons as his father, is able to look back at his father's life and understand why Dennis fell into every possible pitfall laid in his path: “We all know that my dad was a drug addict. And I was with him off and on. And my dad gave so much love to so many people, because he was trying to fill a void. So, when he was able to make somebody laugh, or make somebody happy, that filled a hole inside of him -- but it didn’t fill it forever; it was a momentary thing, bro.”

Dennis' son, Carl B. Wilson, who's also a drummer, is hopeful that even more of his father's unreleased works will be issued sooner rather than later: "Anything that would be able to could come out and let people hear what work my dad has done. . . Y'know, I'd love to be able to go somewhere and buy one of his records. So whichever way any of his work can come out, just so long as it's through the right avenue and can really be done right, then yeah, all that stuff. Ultimately, what I'd really like is for people to be able to understand and appreciate what he did. Y'know, what it comes down to is, is it worth it for it to come out? And y'know, I've always thought that it was."

On December 28th, 1983, Dennis Wilson, drowned in Marina Del Rey, California just weeks after his 39th birthday.
