The Beach Boys' Christmas Album is reissued on CD, plus bonus tracks, minus liner |
notes. Brian's 'autobiography', Wouldn't It Be Nice - My Own Story, is published.
'Written' in collaboration with Todd Gold, it rapidly becomes obvious that a large
percentage of the text originates in earlier books, most notably the Leaf and Gaines
volumes. That the new sections praise Landy at the expense of the band are seen as some
indication as to the origin of this material (Brian will later admit in court that he had
almost nothing to do with writing the book other than being interviewed by Gold , and
that at least half of it was written by Landy).
The Beach Boys (minus Brian) contribute a cover of "Crocodile Rock" to Two Rooms -|
Celebrating The Songs Of Elton John & Bernie Taupin. Brian embarks on a marathon
book-signing & promotional tour on the 21st; it runs until November 15th.
|November||The Beach Boys play in Japan.|
the conservatorship case is settled out of court on the 13th, following a meeting between |
Brian & Carl, and Brian's multi-faceted relationship with Landy is dissolved with effect
from January 1st 1992 for a reported three years. Brian is said to be happy with the
decision, although it is rapidly noted, with some dismay, that Kevin Leslie continues to
be one of Brian's inner circle (he leaves Brian's employ in late 1992).
