Some Thoughts on Murry Wilson Empty Re: Some Thoughts on Murry Wilson

The thing about Murry was, however bad he was - and he was, in some instances, despicable - his own father, William Coral "Buddy" Wilson (1890-1981) was far worse. The man was a violent drunk who Murry once had to stop beating his wife (i.e. Murry's mother) and threw him out of the house, broke Murry's glasses (he was wearing them) and was generally a horrible person. When he died in 1981, aged 91, he was estranged from the entire Wilson & Love families and had been for many years. I don't think he even went to Murry's funeral.

This isn't to excuse any of Murry's more extreme actions and tendencies, but his personality didn't come out of nowhere.

I remember reading (in Catch A Wave?) that his sisters wouldn't hear a bad word spoken about Murry because of how he'd tried to protect them and their mother from Buddy's drunken onslaughts.

So Brian and Dennis not attending Murry's funeral was basically carrying on a dysfunctional family tradition. Some Thoughts on Murry Wilson Cool

This is arguably the finest track on TMMoMW, the Rick Henn composition "Island In The Sky":

Somehow missed the great man's birthday on the 2nd
(even though I was back from holiday by then).
This is probably Murry's finest hour.

I remembered him this year though. Poor Murry has a lot to live down.

George Falkner (Junkstar at Smiley and EH) has recorded a couple of Murry singles. "Two Step, Side Step" was released in 2015 and now we have a Christmas ditty--with a cowboy song on the flip! In a just world, "Happy, Happy Holiday" would be heard in shopping malls the world over this Christmas:
