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.
