Meet Mike Love and Bruce Johnston from The Beach Boys at Waterstones Piccadilly

We are delighted to be joined by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys to celebrate the release of the first official, ultimate chronicle of one of the world’s greatest bands; The Beach Boys. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Mike Love and Bruce Johnston and get a copy of the book signed.  
 
Here, for the first time in print, is the history of The Beach Boys, by The Beach Boys. In this book, the band members detail their story from the very beginning; from their first record with Captiol Records to the creation of their best known and loved singles; ‘Don’t Worry Baby’, ‘California Girls’, to name just a few. Their text is accompanied by iconic images, never-before-seen negatives and rare ephemera. Given unprecedented access to their personal archives, The Beach Boys offers intimate insight into the lives of the group.  
 
 
Through their unique sound, complex harmonies, sensational live shows and use of innovative recording techniques, The Beach Boys became woven into the cultural fabric of America and influenced generations of musicians globally. They defy decade, genre and form to become one of the most critically acclaimed, commercially successful bands of all time. This book documents how it happened.
