Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Murry Gage Wilson was an American musician and record producer, best remembered as the father of The Beach Boys members Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson, and Carl Wilson, uncle of bandmate Mike Love, and the husband of Audree Wilson. Wilson was also the original manager of the band and served as their music publisher. Wilson was born in Hutchinson, Kansas. His family moved west to Los Angeles when he was five. The family was initially so impoverished that they camped in a tent on the beach when they arrived. He met his future wife Audree while attending Washington High School; they were married March 26, 1938. Wilson had a blue-collar background; as a young man, he worked at a Goodyear factory, while unsuccessfully writing songs. His biggest success was with a dance song, "Two-Step Side-Step," which was featured by Lawrence Welk on his radio program in 1952 and covered on record by RCA Victor Western Swing artist Johnnie Lee Wills, as well as country music singer Bonnie Loushow more
