Birthday wishes for Brian Wilson

By Maria on Monday, May 29, 2000 - 06:31 am:

I know this is a little early, but, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!!!! Have a great day, because you've made all of mine great!
I'd really prefer not to give my location, but what about age? I'm a much younger fan, 15, but I like the bb's for the same reasons as anybody else. They really bring "good vibrations" into my life. I love all your songs, Brian, and I'll see you on your summer tour!

Dear Brian:

Happy Birthday from Knoxville, Tennessee! You are the greatest.

By Gina on Monday, May 29, 2000 - 04:23 pm:

Dear Brian, I would sound like I was "testifyin'" if I told the ways you and your music has changed my life. Happy Birthday from San Antonio, Texas.

Happy Birthday Brian, from Methuen, Massachusetts! Your music gives me so much deep enjoyment and has since I was a toddler in the 60's. Have a fantastic day! See you at Harborlights Pavilion. Thanks for it all!

By Plymouth Rock on Tuesday, May 30, 2000 - 05:29 am:

Brian, I've loved your music from the time I was 6 years old in 1965, asking my mom to put on my older brother's copies of "Today" and "Summer Days". You've given me many, many, many hours of pleasure. Please accept heartfelt thanks and big birthday wishes from this admirer in the Jewel of the Northeast: Portland, Maine.

Warmest birthday wishes from the exotic San
Fernando Valley - just over the hill. Your music
has been a wonderful companion since my early teen
years in the 60's. Your personal story continues
to be an inspiration. Stay strong.
Peace and happiness to you.

Happy Birthday Brian from the NY/NJ area! I have been a fan since I was a teen in the mid 70's (I'm hit the big 40 this week-yikes). I love all of your music, but my favorite is the stuff that didn't hit the charts. Thanks for taking risks and experimenting with music all these years. Your music really does heal people. Thanks for keeping your sense of humor, oh yeah, and thanks for being such a cool guy. Sending you lots of love and wishes for extreme bliss!

hope you are having a nice time.

come to britain and see us soon, how about playing the Royal Albert Hall?

Happy Birthday, Brian, from Pasadena (now) and Redondo Beach (then), CA, USA! Be seeing you in September at the Bowl.

By SAND on Tuesday, May 30, 2000 - 08:02 pm:

Happy Birthday Brian!
Wanted to thank you for writing music which has inspired and healed me in more ways than can be explained. Since I agree with your concept that music is the voice of God, words could never aaccurately convey the many ways in which your divinely inspired melodies and harmonies have "re-arranged" my mind, but suffice it to say that I feel I need a dose of your music every day. Without songs like "God Only Knows," "Surf's Up" "Warmth of the Sun," "Rio Grande," "Till I Die," "This Whole World, "Don't Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder," "Caroline No,"...etc, etc etc...what would this world be? From a N. J. babyboomer born and raised on your magnificent music, have the greatest birthday imaginable!

By Roland Stranneborn on Wednesday, May 31, 2000 - 05:17 am:

Brian - Happy Birthday and Thank You!
As my fellow Swede above from Ludvika said (I happen to live in Hong Kong!), your music has meant more for me than I can explain in words. I've been a fan since I was 11, in 1961!

Best Wishes and Many Thanks!

Happy Brithday Brian!
Thankyou for all of the hours of comfort and joy your music has brought to me, I would be lost without it. Have an awesome birthday!

Best wishes,

P.S. A while ago David Leaf had you sign a booklet from the Good Vibrations boxed set for me and I wanted to thankyou for taking the time to do that for me. It is my most valued possession and now hangs framed above my bed :)

By Ca Girl on Thursday, June 1, 2000 - 06:51 am:

June 20th is just around the corner!! Since Brian's website is up, maybe we could send him some birthday greeting there as well. I've read the above postings, and they are obviously from the heart. Gave me goosebumps. And I couldn't help but realize that if we posted there, he couldn't help but see how he's touched our lives & hearts. :):) Just a suggestion.

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! If your day is filled with 1/8th of the happiness & inspiration you've given the world, it's sure to be the best yet! With Unconditional, Eternal love from the bottom of my heart...I wish you infinite Love, Happiness, Health and success. If anyone ever deserved it, it's YOU Brian.!!! Thank you for everything.

By Phil on Thursday, June 1, 2000 - 07:23 am:

Happy birthday from Montreal, Brian; thank you for all the music you've offered us, and I hope that you'll enjoy yourself immensely in the future by doing only what you feel like doing - you've certainly earned it! I wish you the best...

By David K. on Thursday, June 1, 2000 - 12:04 pm:

Happy birthday from a lifetime New Yorker who now calls California his home. Your music has brought me never-ending joy and has quite literally changed my life. May you have many more happy and productive years to come.

Happy birthday, Brian, from Seattle. Absolutely loved your show at the Moore Theatre last fall. Thanks for making my memories of the 60's so much fun. And thanks for making the music world so much richer. You deserve the best!

By TamLinny on Sunday, June 4, 2000 - 10:37 am:

Dear Brian,
There are very few people, a few of whom I know personally, who simply amaze me whenever I think of them, which is often. You are one of them. Your music has changed many lives for the better, and I thank you personally for it. May you have a very happy birthday, and very happy times from here on.

Hey Brian!
Happy Birthday from Jon L in Connecticut. I appreciate all the music you've done over the years, and I especially like "Orange Crate Art" and "Imagination"

It especially does my heart good to see you with your family, having two girls myself, so I know how much that must mean to you.

Keep on makin' that music, and lovin' that family!

Jon L
