Wilson Returns Home To Sing

BRIAN WILSON will celebrate the launch of a new BEACH BOYS monument at the site of his childhood California home with a special live performance.

The 20 May (05) event will be held on West 119th street in Hawthorne - the spot where GOOD VIBRATIONS star Brian once lived with his late brothers, and fellow Beach Boys, CARL and DENNIS.

The three siblings spent their formative years at the now-demolished Hawthorne home under the strict - and often violent - rule of their father MURRAY.

However, despite his troubled childhood, Brian first learned how to play the piano there and composed some of the Beach Boys' best-loved tunes.

The new landmark monument is the work of Dennis' son SCOTT, who began foundation work at the site with his construction company earlier this year (05).

Backed by members of his tour band, Brian will perform a short set after the dedication ceremony.
