|Brian Wilson on stage at the Greek with his family|
Brian Wilson, the creative force behind the Beach Boys, celebrated his 73rd birthday by rocking the Greek Theatre for nearly two hours at a sell-out concert full of musical surprises. Backed by a nine-piece band plus fellow founder Beach Boy member Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin, he let rip with a set of old Beach Boy numbers along with some songs from the Smile and Pet Sounds albums and his new album, No Pier Pressure.
Several of his children and grandchildren joined h on the stage, wheeling on an oversized cake while a bunch of balloons floated at the back of the stage, sent by John Cusack, who portrays him in the movie Love and Mercy.
