#123 – Jon Stebbins – Beach Boys FAQ


Our Beach Boys coverage continues with Jon Stebbins, author of The Beach Boys FAQ – All That’s Left to Know About America’s Band (Backbeat Books).  The comprehensive book includes bios of every member of the Beach Boys (past and present), including who sang on which song, specifics on the musical gear they used, and even their addresses.  Plus, he gives a profile of the sidemen who played on their records, and provides a list of Beach Boys’ TV appearances.  Of course, he devotes an entire chapter to “Your Favorite Vegetable – The Fantastically Freaky and Sad Legend of Smile.”  Stebbins is also the author of Dennis Wilson – The Real Beach Boy, and The Lost Beach Boy – The True Story of David Marks.
