Beach Boys

Beach Boys
a popular US pop group in the 1960s, many of whose songs were about enjoying life on the coast of California, surfing and swimming in the sea. Their most successful songs included I Get Around (1964) and Good Vibrations (1966). They still sing and perform on stage, though one member of the original group, Carl Wilson, died in 1998.

U.S. rock group.

The band was formed in California in 1961 by brothers Brian Wilson (b. 1942) on keyboards and bass, Dennis Wilson (1944–83) on drums, and Carl Wilson (1946–98) on guitar; their cousin Mike Love (b. 1941) on drums; and Alan Jardine (b. 1942) on guitar. Within a year they launched a string of surfing-oriented hits marked by close vocal harmony, including "Surfin' Safari" and "California Girls." By 1966 they had released more than 10 albums, including Pet Sounds (1966), considered their best. Despite Brian Wilson's reclusiveness due to stress-and drug-related breakdowns, the band continued to make recordings into the 1980s and toured into the 1990s.
