Beach Boy Mike Love is to release a book about his spiritual life and the insider history of the band
o-founding member of the Beach Boys Mike Love is due to release a book in the summer of 2016. The book is to be called Good Vibrations: My Life As A Beach Boy, and will go into detail about Love’s life as well as providing a detailed history of the Beach Boys from an insider’s perspective.
A press release from the book’s publisher Blue Rider Press said:”It will describe Love’s early childhood and family story, and that of his cousins Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, all founding members of the band, along with Al Jardine. Love will share the story behind the group’s unparalleled hit-making in the 1960s, including the music that celebrated the California lifestyle as well as the recording of Pet Sounds and other seminal albums.”
The book will also cover Love’s following and teaching of Transcendental Meditation, and his complex relationship with Brian Wilson. The release will happen just in time for the 50th anniversary of one of the band’s most popular and enduring songs, Good Vibrations, and will be co-written by James Hirch.
