It started out — my mom and dad took a little vacation to Mexico and they left $250 for food. But instead of food we went and bought some instruments. We got a bass, guitar and a set of drums. … I was 19. Dennis was 15. Carl was 17. Mike was 18. Al was 19. And so we wrote a song called “Surfin'” in my living room,  and that’s how it all started.

Being called a musical genius was a cross to bear. Genius is a big word. But if you have to live up to something, you might as well live up to that.

I think because I felt so sad I had to bring out my feelings, and try to create music that would make me and all my friends feel better.

We wanted to bring some love to the world. I thought we were good at doing that. Bringin’ love to the world.

Humor — it helps to make the vibe better — it loosens up the vibrations.

1976

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I’ll make you so sure about it
God only knows what I’d be without you…
