Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marilyn Wilson-Rutherford, n e Rovell, (born 1947) is an American singer. She was a member of groups The Honeys and Spring (aka American Spring) with her sister Diane Rovell. She was also the first wife of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, and is the mother of singers Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips. Marilyn and Brian met when she, sister Diane and cousin Ginger Blake (who was dating Brian's then collaborator Gary Usher at the time) went to see the Beach Boys perform at Pandora's Box, a Hollywood nightclub, in October 1962. Talking during an interval between sets, Brian asked for a sip of Marilyn's hot chocolate. He nervously spilled the drink on her blouse a moment later, but the incident broke the ice between the two, and they began dating, despite their relative age difference (he was 20 and a professional musician; she was 14 and still in high school).
