Bacardi Show Birthday Greetings go out today, on this Father's day, to the fellow who once incorporated the phrase "The Child is the Father to the Man" in a song: Beach Boy Brian Wilson, one of the greatest songwriters in popular music history in my own humble opinion. Brian's been unusually active over the last year or so; not only does he have a new album coming out, but has also pulled the Lazarus-like task of reviving the legendary aborted Smile project some 36 years after it was conceived, first as a series of concerts and as a brand-new studio recording, wonder of wonders, due in September.

Amazing to think that of the three Wilson Brothers, Brian is the survivor. Long may he run.
