Those who missed the theatrical release of Brian Wilson biopic 'Love & Mercy' don't have to miss out any longer as the critically acclaimed flick is now on DVD, bringing a story of hope, love and creativity to the masses.
Own 'Love And Mercy' On DVD today
In June 2015, the biopic of one of music's greatest living legends, Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, was released to a rapturous response. Depicting him in two major decades of his life, 'Love And Mercy' was directed by the Oscar nominated Bill Pohlad ('12 Years A Slave', 'Brokeback Mountain') and captured both the intense pain and the immense happiness that he struggled with throughout his successful career.
The 1960s was an incredible decade for music, with the likes of Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, The Monkees and many, many others producing timeless hits that remain in the world's consciousness to this day. However, little do people know the reason for all these genius hits, for the catchy melodies and iconic hooks; behind every great artist of the day was a band unlike any other. The Wrecking Crew were probably the most sought after session musicians of the era, producing beats for all areas of the West Coast Sound, winning Grammys and become just as rich as the people they were supporting - and yet the general public remained widely oblivious to the music industry's secret weapon. They may have been ever-evolving, but these LA artists were still top choice for the biggest stars, namely Phil Spector who dubbed them 'The Phil Spector Wall of Sound Orchestra'.

The new album sees The Beach Boys star explore ageing and growing.
Brian Wilson has just unveiled his hugely anticipated new solo album 'No Pier Pressure', and now opens up about the generational significance of the new material and what it means to be writing music at the grand age of 72. Needless to say, the title says it all.
Brian Wilson opens up about the man behind 'No Pier Pressure'
It's his first collection of original solo material since 2008's 'That Lucky Old Sun' and, while that was hardly an era ago, it seems this new venture displays a man who's grown in himself both personally and professionally; and certainly doesn't feel the need to produce music for anyone but himself anymore.
Be prepared to feel amused and totally creeped out all at the same time.
On Thursday night’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show’, host Jimmy Fallon unveiled what has got to be the creepiest of all the creepy duets. In the pre taped skit, Jimmy and five (yes five!) identical Jimmy Fallon waxworks give a hilarious, if yet totally disturbing rendition of the Beach Boy’s 1965 classic ‘Barbara Ann’.
That's a lot of Jimmy Fallons
The skit begins with Jimmy answering a call from his mom as The Beach Boy’s classic plays as his ringtone. "Hey Mom!" the host says. "They just dropped off my wax figures from Madame Tussauds. It's amazing. The details, everything, it looks just like me.”

Through the 1960s, a collection of Los Angeles musicians worked together in order to support acts like The Beach Boys and Frank Sinatra. This group was called The Wrecking Crew, and they created some of the greatest and most influential songs, without receiving any of the credit for it. Beach Boys co-founder, Bryan Wilson, described how they were the most important part of that period in music. A documentary 12 years in the making, sheds some light on some of the unsung heroes of the musical industry in the 1960s.

The Beach Boys songwriter is portrayed by Paul Dano and John Cusack in this moving biopic.
The full story of The Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson is finally hitting the movies in the form of Bill Pohlad's challenging, life-spanning biopic 'Love & Mercy' which stars Paul Dano and John Cusack as the respective younger and older Wilsons.
Paul Dano stars as a young Brian Wilson in 'Love & Mercy'
While being responsible for writing one of the most important rock albums in history, 1966's 'Pet Sounds', Brian Wilson was at the most fragile stage of his life during that decade. Dragged down mentally and emotionally by the stress of song-writing he took comfort in drug use and was subsequently forced to seek a range of psychological treatments. As tensions within the band grew, he became more and more erratic and lost in a confusing world of hallucinations and psychosis. Paul Dano plays Wilson's enthusiastic younger self, while John Cusack takes on the role of the broken man that came decades after. Paul Giamatti also makes an appearance as Wilson's crooked psychologist Eugene Landy who fed him excessively high dosages of medicative drugs and prevented him from seeing his partner Melinda Ledbetter (who is played by Elizabeth Banks).
The album is set to be released in April 2015 through Capitol Records.
Brian Wilson goes solo again with his forthcoming, pun-laden album release 'No Pier Pressure' which marks his return to former band The Beach Boys' home label Capitol Records and will hit shelves in April.
Brian Wilson returns solo
'No Pier Pressure' is Brian Wilson's eleventh solo venture and follows his 2012 50th anniversary reunion album with The Beach Boys' entitled 'That's Why God Made the Radio', a record which reached number 3 in the US charts and became their highest charting album since 1965's 'Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)'. The new album also marks his first collection of original material since 2008's 'That Lucky Old Sun'.
Captain and Tennille, the husband and wife duo most famous for their song 'Love Will Keep Them Together', are divorcing after 39 years of marriage.
Captain and Tennille are divorcing! The husband and wife duo who most famously toured with the Beach Boys in the 70s have filed for divorce.
After almost 40 years of marriage (39 to be precise), it seems the couple are in need of a break from one another, or at least that's how Tennille feels as Captain claims he has no idea why his wife filed for divorce! When questioned by TMZ as to why they are splitting up, Captain said "I don't know why she filed. I've got to figure it out for myself first." He also added they were still living in the same house.
Speculation surrounds whether or not they may truly separate. TMZ suggested there may be reasons relating to health insurance, as 71-year-old Captain suffers from Parkinson's disease. There are a number of references to health insurance throughout the divorce papers, which were filed in Arizona on January 16th.
Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck should make for an interesting live experience.
We already knew that Jeff Beck had contributed to Brian Wilson's forthcoming solo album, though it appears the pair's collaborative future is more serious than we first assumed. The rock heavyweights are set to hit the road together for a tour that begins in Hollywood on September 27, 2013.
"He's got a truckload of hits to play, but we'll build on that and interact," Beck told USA Today, "Brian will kick things off, but I'll also be given enough time to establish what I'm about. In the end, we'll mix and match. It's a complete honor to be on stage with him."
The enigmatic Wilson simply called guitarist Beck "very well versed" in his music, noting that "he'll play in the pockets where I'm not singing. He brings that great guitar-player kind of thing to the picture."

It's a strange mix of acts, but sure to entertain everyone, somehow
If you’ve ever fancied catching The Beach Boys, JLS, Paul Young and The Saturdays on the same bill, then you literally won’t be able to find anything better then A Day At The Park – the Barclays-sponsored gig in Hyde Park.
That’s not all, though: Elton John, Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones will also be performing as part of the series of gigs taking place in London’s famous Hyde Park. Rob Hallett, President, International Live Touring, AEG Live says: "Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park is much, much more than just a music event. I have always wanted to promote a show where you can take your kids and your parents.” Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park will take place over two weekends, and is officially the longest, most boring name for anything, ever. “Junior can be enthralled with the Gruffalo and your daughter can scream at JLS while your parents dance around to The Beach Boys. Everyone’s happy!" adds Hallet.
We wouldn't put these two on the same bill, but oh well - Mike Love [L] and Jonathan 'JB' Gill [R]
