Biography | show moreshow less
Carl Dean Wilson (1946-1998), was the youngest of the three brothers who formed the original  Beach Boys. Formed by brother Brian Wilson, the group also included brother Dennis, cousin Mike Love and college friend, Al Jardine. Their first song, "Surfin'", which captured the California scene, was released to popular reviews, and a string of hits, most written by Brian and Love, followed, including "California Girls", "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Don't Worry Baby", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", "God Only Knows", "I Get Around", "Help Me, Rhonda" and "Good Vibrations". The group's lead guitarist, Carl became a strong vocalist, singing lead on such songs as "God Only Knows" and "Good Vibrations". When Brian retired from the stage in 1965, Carl became the leader of the group. Carl, who released two solo albums in the 1980s before reuniting with the Beach Boys, also produced records for other artists. Diagnosed with cancer in 1996, he continued to perform through the Beach Boys' 1997 summer tour.
