Dennis Wilson (Beach Boy)

Dennis Carl Wilson was an American rock and roll musician best known as a founding member and the drummer of The Beach Boys. He was a member of the group from its formation until his death in 1983, though he was often supplemented in the studio by session drummers, and on stage by a backup drummer.

Born in Hawthorne, California, the second son of Murry and Audree Wilson.
