Critics were shocked when Wilson teamed up with a magazine journalist for 1991's Wouldn't It Be Nice: My Own Story, in which he apparently revealed a catalogue of childhood abuse at the hands of his father and admitted for the first time he had suffered drink and drug addiction and serious mental illness.

Commentators questioned the validity of the book, as it was released while Wilson was under round-the-clock care of discredited therapist Eugene Landy, and the rocker himself later insisted he had not written the tome and had never even read the final draft.

In a post on his official website, a representative for Wilson writes the book will reveal "for the first time" his full life story, including "his tumultuous relationship with his father, the loss of his mother and brothers, his fears about live performance...
