Bruce Johnston discusses The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion tour in the new issue of Uncut (dated August 2013 and out now).
The singer and multi-instrumentalist talks about the group’s new live album, their UK shows and his past times touring with Brian Wilson.
“There’s still a lot of pressure on him,” says Johnston. “When I joined the band [in 1965], I used to watch his behaviour. He was like Rachmaninoff as an army general.
“He was sharing his art and protecting it with his leadership skills. He was so red-hot, so hip. So young.”
The new issue of Uncut is out now.
