The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson has turned seventy, Wednesday June 20, 2012. The‘Good Vibrations’ singer is celebrating this milestone as he is touring with the band at Montreal’s Bell Center. There was cake and it had looked like the cover of his newest album, ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’.
He told Rolling Stone:
”Are you kidding? I feel great! I don’t think I look or act 70. I feel more like I’m in my mid-40s.”
Wilson had also stated that a phone call came him from Sir Paul McCartney, who had also turned 70 two days ago.
“[Paul said] ‘Happy birthday, friend!’ I said, ‘Happy birthday to you, Paul’,” Wilson recalled. “He told me he was headed into Abbey Road. I told him we were on our way to Montreal.
“I think he said something like, ‘Can you believe we made it this far?’ It was very pleasant and sweet.’”
The Beach Boy tour is to continue in the US going on to mid-July as they will proceed to London on September 28, 2012.
“It’s been getting better as it goes along,” Wilson added. “We needed a lot of practice!”
