Do you recognize the famous musician hanging out with David Lee Roth in this rare photo taken after an appearance on the David Brenner radio talk show in August, 1985?
Of course, that’s the late, great, Carl Wilson from the Beach Boys. Even back when Roth was in his first band, Red Ball Jet, he maintained that the Beach Boys were one of his major influences.
Back in February, David Lee Roth and Beach Boy Mike Love performed together at The Society of Singers’ 21st ELLA Awards, where Dave referred to the Beach Boys as “mentors,” and said, “If you tear open in the first Van Halen album, beach sand falls out. We picked up the ball a few summers after you fellas.”
