Beach Boys Brian Wilson To Retire From The Road

(Gibson) Beach Boys founder, singer and songwriter Brian Wilson has announced that, after he plays some London concerts this year, he may retire from touring altogether.

London's Evening Standard newspaper reports that Wilson claims touring is now hard work. "As I get older it gets harder for me," he said. "But when I'm sitting down at the keyboard and my band's behind me, I can do it. This could be the last time I play here. I'm going to miss it but I'm getting a little bit old for touring."

Wilson will be in London in for three nights in September at the Royal Festival Hall. "London is my favorite city in the whole world," he said. "I love the people here. I think the people appreciate the music a lot better than Americans do, they're a lot more sensitive to the music than Americans are." more on this story
