The actor was presented with the Timeless Icon prize by his longtime actor friend Garry Marshall, who recommended John for TV show Full House, following tributes from John's Full House co-stars Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin, and Grandfathered co-star Paget Brewster.

“I feel like I owe this and everything good in my life to the people who surround me with love,” John said while accepting the award in honour of his extensive career. He then grew emotional when thanking his family, friends and fans,“who have been watching me since General Hospital and allowed me to come into your living rooms… and I promise I never take that for granted.”

“I thought it was undeserving but I guess I’ve been around a long time... All I wanted was to be on a show like Happy Days," the 52-year-old told Variety.com at the show.

Mike Love Beach Boys Brian Wilson

The singer, who is the sole licensee of the Beach Boys name, hasn't been portrayed in the best light in previous Beach Boys books and now he's hoping to set the record straight in his own tome.

Love insists it's time for him to speak out after years of being "ostracised" and "vilified" by bandmates like cousin Brian Wilson.

"It was like I hardly did anything and Brian did everything," Love told Rolling Stone. "It’s like kind of trying to erase somebody from history or create another reality.

The Let Love Rule star spends a large part of the year at his retreat on Eleuthera in the Bahamas and he's made it his 2016 New Year's resolution to take surfing lessons there.

"I don't surf and I'm not the best swimmer," he tells Rolling Stone, "(but) I made a plan a month ago: Surfing is gonna change my music. It's going to offer me something I don't have that I need to move toward.

"Lately I've been listening to (the Beach Boys song) God Only Knows over and over. A Brian Wilson phase wouldn't be bad."

Kurt Russell Beach Boys Elvis Presley

The Furious 7 star stumbled upon the studio session as a child after he was dropped off to perform some acting work.

"I was about 12 years old and I had... to do a voiceover or a commercial," he tells U.S. late night host James Corden. "So I was walking down hallways, knocking on doors and I could here this music coming from one room and I found the place where I was supposed to go, but I was a little bit early and they were a little bit late, so there was nobody there.

"I just started wandering around and I walked in the door of this place and I watched them (Beach Boys) do this song and I started to leave and one of them said, 'No, it's OK, come in and listen to this. What do you think of this?' and I thought I recognised the sound, and it was The Beach Boys.

Paul Dano performed Beach Boys classic You Still Believe in Me alongside Wilson and Al Jardine, and told Rolling Stone the jazz club gig was a dream come true.

"Brian asked me to sing that song because he knows it's one of my favourites," the actor explains. "My favourite part was the ending, the communal 'ahhhs' and the feeling of communion up there. It's a really beautiful, intimate song."

Wilson was also joined onstage at the Vibrato Grill in Los Angeles by Jardine's son Matt, who took on lead vocals for the band's performance of another Beach Boys classic, Wouldn't It Be Nice.

Brian Wilson To Play Benefit Concert For Mental Health Drive


Brian Wilson Beach Boys

The veteran musician, who spent much of his younger life as a recluse after developing schizophrenia in the 1960s, is backing Campaign to Change Direction, an initiative which aims to erase the stigma around mental health issues in the U.S.

Wilson will play a fundraising gig for Give an Hour, a charity providing free mental health care to war veterans, on 4 November (15) and he is proud to be involved with the scheme.

He says, "My wife, Melinda, and I are very excited to be a part of this important campaign, not only to bring awareness to the mental health issues faced by millions of Americans, but also to encourage everyone to learn the five signs of emotional suffering. It's time for us to bring the conversation of mental health in America out of the shadows, and the Campaign to Change Direction is leading the way."
