The Beach Boys' Schizophrenia
Geoffrey Himes, Musician, April 1981
ON JULY 4, 1980, the Beach Boys sat at the base of the Washington Monument and played to a vast sea of half a million listeners. The band played almost nothing written after 1968, relying instead on the sure-fire cheer-winners like 'California Girls' and 'I Get Around'.
