About the Book

In the book, Mike Love tells his own story for the first time, of how a sheet-metal apprentice became the quintessential front man for America's most successful rock band, singing in more than 5,600 concerts in 26 countries. Love also narrates the stories behind his lyrics for pop classics such as "Good Vibrations” (which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year), "California Girls," "Surfin' USA," and "Kokomo.”

About the Author

As a founding member of the Beach Boys, Mike Love has spent an extraordinary fifty-five years, and counting, as the group's lead singer and principal lyricist. The Beach Boys, from their California roots to their international fame, are a unique American story -- one of overnight success and age-defying longevity; of musical genius and reckless self-destruction; of spirituality, betrayal, and forgiveness -- and Love is the only band member to be part of it each and every step.
