The Eugene Landy version,
This review is from: Wouldn't it be Nice: My Own Story (Paperback)
Brains and Genius? A strange book. The subject of much early 1990s litigation between various members of the band, with Brian Wilson holding up his hands to say he didn't write it, or couldn't remember it, or it was someone else's memories. Still a fascinating glimpse, primarily, into the relationship between Dr Landy and his team and Brian Wilson: patient and psychologist; co-songwriters; co-book writers; manager and client; would be film producers etc. Only in America could such behaviour continue for so long. Scary, because Landy did help to save his life, but then took it over almost lock, stock and barrel. A cautionary tale of money, drugs and too much influence. The part not about Landy is all cobbled together cut and paste.
Definitely not Todd Gold's finest hour.
