The Beach Boys 1970-80

By The Well Of Sound

Broken up with Capitol Records and fraught with personal problems, The Beach Boys must begin again in 1970 -- not as boys but as men. And it's a rocky mountain to climb. Lex and Dave navigate all the musical experimentation, the drug use, the in-fighting, the celebrity tangents, and the absurdity that define one of the biggest names in pop history during their toughest decade.  Don't forget to hit SUBSCRIBE for more deep dives into the greatest and underappreciated acts in rock, pop, country, and soul.
