I've always loved the music of the Beach Boys, but wasn't aware of their personal lives, especially that of Brian Wilson. So heartbreaking, yet successful in spite of it all. You'll never listen to their music the same way again.

A Wrecking Crew member to Wilson:
Chuck: Let me tell you something. We're all pros, you know? We've played with everyone. Heard it all. You name them, we've played with them. Sinatra, Dean Martin... Elvis, Phil Spector... Sam Cooke, everyone! And we all studied in goddamn

Wison: More than Phil Spector?
Chuck: Ah, Phil's got nothing on you.
