Recording Acad to honor Beach Boy founder

The Recording Academy will honor Brian Wilson as the MusiCares 2005 person of the year.

Founder of the Beach Boys and architect of their sound will be feted Feb. 11 at the Hollywood Palladium. Event includes a star-studded tribute concert and an auction of memorabilia and luxury items.

Wilson’s musical accomplishments have been increasingly lauded over the last decade.

“He embodies the positive spirit that comes from dedication, perseverance and creative brilliance; his contributions to the evolution of music are both legendary and profound,” Recording Acad prexy Neil Portnow said.

Songwriter, producer, arranger and composer, Wilson is one of pop’s most influential creators and one of music’s most revered figures.

The Beach Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. This year, Wilson and his band performed “Smile” across Europe and the U.S.; in September, Nonesuch issued “Smile,” which has received almost universal acclaim.

Wilson’s philanthropic efforts include the Carl Wilson Foundation for cancer research and performances at the Adopt-a-Minefield benefit and Neil Young’s Bridge School concert.

MusiCares provides a foundation of assistance for music people in times of need.
