I read Brian Wilson's autobiography a while ago. Their dad was a piece of crap. I find Dennis very interesting. He lived hard and died young. Thanks for posting.:)

So is the real Jason, or Heidi pretending again?

Really enjoyed that ... Some great footage that I have never seen before , especially the interview with Ruby Pearl . Would anyone have any idea where I could locate photos or video of Dean Moorhouse ? .Have gone through all the books and don't ever recall seeing a picture.

There was also a picture of a young Dean somewhere but, it seems to have disappeared.

I just saw a link to the movie, went to plug in my speakers and now it's gone. What happened?

Doc Sierra said...

Oops. I was looking at the wrong page.

Sorry, It was Heidi pretending again, Matt! :)

Which 2 girls did Dennis pickup hitchhiking?

Nevermind, I actually just watched it & saw who it was

Saw this about a year ago. Very well done. I've always felt that Wilson's Manson dealings damaged him to the core and fueled his self destructiveness. A very sad case study.
