Pet Sounds – the ground-breaking psychedelic Rock album, declared by Rolling Stone as the 2nd Greatest Album of All Time (second only to The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club) - is the album that turned the industry on its head, broke all the rules and changed Rock'n'Roll history, influencing greats including The Beatles, The Who, Radiohead, Elton John and REM.

The multiple Grammy Award winner, who has been called the Gershwin of his generation, is a Rock'n'Roll, Songwriters and UK Music Hall of Famer and cited as inspiration by luminaries including Sir Paul McCartney, who acknowledged that Pet Sounds "was the big influence that set me thinking when we recorded 'Pepper'".

Since that time, Brian has continued his association with The Beach Boys on a recording basis, as well as the odd reunion tour, including the 50th Anniversary Tour in 2012.

2015 has marked a triumphant return for Brian Wilson with a brand new solo release No Pier Pressure, proving his talents continue all these years later, a re-release of Pet Sounds, as well as the release of Love & Mercy – the commended biographical film about Brian's remarkable life and creative process.
