DUMB ANGEL: The Life of Dennis Wilson (of the Beach Boys)

DUMB ANGEL: The Life of Dennis Wilson (of the Beach Boys) by Adam Webb - With Preface by Peter Buck of R.E.M.

"Dumb Angel" is said to have been an expression of Brian Wilson's insight into the character of his brother Dennis Wilson.

Dennis Wilson was the drummer of the band The Beach Boys - and was the only true surfer in the group. He died prematurely in 1983, shortly after marrying his cousin's illegitimate love child. Although he died early - he seemed to have still lived a very full life.

He indulged in copious amounts of sex and drugs, had dealings with Charles Manson and the Family, starred in the movie 'Two Lane Blacktop', was married several times, wrote and recorded on over twenty Beach Boy tracks and had many solo recordings as well.

Dumb Angel is a study which reveals the highs and lows of his amazing life and career - and the tragic details of his early death - focusing mainly on his true legacy, his voice and music.
