'Caroline No' (Brian Wilson Solo) (1999)
The death of Carl Wilson in 1998 drove the surviving Beach Boys apart. Al Jardine was pushed out of the band, and Brian left to be a solo artist. That left Mike Love as the sole original member in the band, so he briefly brought early 1960s guitarist David Marks back into the fold. Meanwhile, Brian released his 1998 solo disc Imagination and launched his first ever solo tour. The shows received ecstatic reviews. Here's Wilson performing "Caroline No" at the Beacon Theater in 1999.
