About the Book

Mike Love is a founding member of the Beach Boys and the lead singer and lyricist of their biggest hits. With their lush vocals and endlessly inventive arrangements, the band forged art from songs about cars, surfing and first love. But beneath the Beach Boys’ wholesome appearance lurked darker truths: drugs and dissent, deceit and betrayal, illness and infidelity, line-up changes and litigation. In Good Vibrations, Mike Love tells the unvarnished story of his five-decade tenure as frontman of the quintessential American band, whose music continues to reverberate today.

“A proper, no-holds-barred romp through the life and times of the greatest US rock band to surf the planet.”
- Neil Norman, Daily Express
“There’s a strong case for Love being the Beach Boys’ most reliable narrator. And given that the story involves Charles Manson, Leonard Bernstein, Republican fund-raisers, parental abuse, mental illness and a cataclysmic fall from grace, as well as some of the greatest music of the twentieth century, it’s a story well worth reading.”
- Bob Stanley, Guardian
