Overview
It never occurred to me that my life growing up with my dad, Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys, would be of any interest to anyone. That is until I built The Beach Boys Historical Landmark on the site where my dad, his brothers Brian and Carl Wilson and the other founding members of The Beach Boys grew up in Hawthorne, California, the site where The Beach Boys phenomenon was born. A great deal of my dad's life was undeniably self- destructive. I will not sugar coat the facts but at the same time, I want to let every-one know what a great person he was. He had the kindest and most sincere heart I have ever known. Despite his well-publicized addictions, I hope this book helps Dad's fans understand why his life was so messed up. I have tried so hard to get over his death but I doubt I ever will. I know I am a good person but like my dad, I have made some terrible mistakes. I have done bad things, been addicted to drugs and much more. But even though I had a privileged childhood, I am aware, that I've embodied many of Dad's demons right through to my adulthood. I know now that having such a lack of self-worth, I became responsible for my own self- destructive nature. Could this have been the same for him? Dad, I loved you with all my heart and I miss you every single day and I hope this book sheds light on the two of us and that whatever needs to be forgiven, will be.
