(CBS News) Long after other pop groups of their era have packed it in, the Beach Boys are just getting their second wind. This morning they talk about it with our Anthony Mason . . . For the Record: A few notes and you know immediately: It's a sound as recognizable as any in rock history, the sound of The Beach Boys. In the Sixties, their California surf rock was music for an endless summer. Half a century later, it's an indelible part of American culture - music that defined its time, and has transcended it. No American band has more Top 40 hits . . . and the reunited group has just hit the road to perform them. How did they decide to get back together? "It's the 50th anniversary of our group, so it makes a lot of sense, don't you think?" said Mike Love. "It's a remarkable milestone."

The music of The Beach Boys captured America in the '60s like no other band. Brothers Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, joined by their cousin, Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine, burst from their Los Angeles suburb with songs of surf, sun and girls that became milestones of rock 'n' roll. Yet the Wilson family history of abuse, jealousy and mental illness was the polar opposite of the sunny idylls about which they sang. "Catch a Wave: The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson" (Rodale), the singer-songwriter who wrote "Surfin' Safari," "Surfin' U.S.A.," "Catch a Wave," "Fun, Fun, Fun," and "I Get Around" (all before he'd turned 22) was both a brilliant star of American music and a mystery of pop culture, whose strange story began long before Hawthorne, Calif., was put on the map as the birthplace of the Beach Boys sound. Read the excerpt from Peter Ames Carlin's book below; then, watch Anthony Mason's interview with Brian Wilson on CBS' "Sunday Morning" July 19. … [Read more...] about Excerpt: The Beach Boys in “Catch a Wave”
