Dennis is buried at sea on the 4th at 33.35N 118.38W, a point in Santa Monica Bay about|
20 miles north of Santa Catalina Island. Usually civilians cannot be buried at sea, but the
Reagan administration grants an exemption.
|March||Alan marries Mary Ann Helmandoller on the 24th.|
"Chasin' The Sky", produced by Spencer Proffer, appears on the Up The Creek |
soundtrack LP on Pasha.
"East Meets West", a collaboration with the Four Seasons produced by Bob Gaudio (and|
backed with an old Seasons track, "Rhapsody"), is released on custom FBI label: all the
band except Dennis contribute. Limited distribution kills any chart hopes and the single is
soon withdrawn at the request of the Beach Boys. Brian is arrested on the 19th at the
Republican National Convention in Dallas for lack of proper accreditation.
