BRIAN WILSON, ROY WOOD, dual godheads

Brian Wilson, Roy Wood = sui generis godheads. Both in their respective manner are multi-intrumentalist orchestral-quality composers/arrangers who write fabulously catchy but complex songs, and sing like twisted angels. Above left, Wilson (Pet Sounds, Smile, The Beach Boys) receiving an award circa 1989, photographic problems therein recounted here LINK. Right,
Wood (The Move, Wizzard) performing with Wizzard in 1974 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Multi-instrumentalist Roy Wood may be, but only the bagpipes supplemented his guitars that night. Opening act was The Raspberries!
