You can evaluate the impact of most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt. Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut 45 years ago.
Even more than the Beatles, The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth — and they made copies for everyone. To these guys, the beach isn’t just a place where the surf comes to play — it’s where life is renewed and made whole again.
