Brian Wilson was born on this very day in 1942. The greatest musician of all time turns 71 years old. Brian’s songs are the most beautiful ones. I get more excited about Brian’s birthdays than I do for my own. I wish you a very happy birthday, Brian! Thank you for all of the presents that you have given us. I wish that we could repay you. The problem is that your presents are pretty hard to match. Please accept our thank-yous. German chocolate cake always seems to taste the best on June 20th.
