Today, Da Capo Press announced it will be publishing the autobiography of Beach Boys guiding light Brian Wilson in Autumn 2015. Back in 1991, Wouldn't It Be Nice: My Own Story was published under Wilson's name as an alleged autobiography, though it has often been dismissed as the work of his shady therapist Eugene Landy. Brother Carl and mother Audrey testified before a judge that Brian hadn't even read the manuscript before it was published!
Perhaps Brian's new autobiography will shed some light on the veracity of his old one. This time he'll be getting some assistance from journalist Jason Fine (Rolling Stone; Men's Journal), and according to a press release on Brian Wilson.com, he "will describe, for the first time, the epic highs and lows of his
life—from his tumultuous relationship with his father, the loss of his
mother and brothers, his fears about live performance, and the struggles
he faced to lead the Beach Boys away from surf music into experimental
terrain to his remarkable personal and professional comeback from drug
addiction and mental illness with the support of his second wife,
Melinda. He will share a new level of emotional honesty never before
expressed in earlier books about him."
