Brian rated No 4:

"The California-like sunshine wasn’t the only thing to celebrate when Brian Wilson played the legends slot in 2005. Backed by a well-drilled eight-piece band, the Beach Boy played an astonishing 25 songs, including Wouldn’t It Be Nice, California Girls and Help Me, Rhonda. The harmonies were as precise and heart tingling as they were on record."

Sorry about having to register to read the whole thing. Here's the whole of what was written about Brian:

"The California-like sunshine wasn’t the only thing to celebrate when Brian Wilson played the legends slot in 2005. Backed by a well-drilled eight-piece band, the Beach Boy played an astonishing 25 songs, including Wouldn’t It Be Nice, California Girls and Help Me, Rhonda. The harmonies were as precise and heart tingling as they were on record. Wilson himself, who has a long and continuing struggle with mental illness, seemed a touch perplexed to be there. But this was a classic set. As Good Vibrations sailed from the speakers, the keyboard player grabbed an actual surfboard, leapt into the crowd and was carried over people’s heads. The entire glorious thing was a perfect tonic to the flash floods that had swept the site just two days before."

Johnny Cash? I didn’t realize he was so popular in the UK. Brian’s recognition is well deserved.
