Brian Wilson kindergarten trades F in music in his school report for an A

The school where Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys graduated updated an F he received in music class in 1959. The note of disapproval was given to a composition that the musician delivered and that, years later, became “Surfin”, a of the Beach Boys’ biggest hits. Going to school recently Wilson had his note changed by the current director, who presented him with an A.

The story was shared on the musician’s social networks, which showed Wilson visiting the old school and described the case:

“Brian Fred Morgan’s music teacher: ‘Brian wrote a composition for me and it turned out to be’ Surfin. ‘” The song received an F but made millions of dollars. “Brian’s rebuke note was replaced by an A by Dr. Landesfeind “.

Take a look:

Hear the song “Surfin'” below:

“Surfin’ was written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love. It was released as the first Beach Boys single (with “Luau” on the B-side) in November 1961 on Candix Records and it later appeared on the 1962 album Surfin’ Safari.

The single effectively began the Beach Boys’ music career, establishing them at the vanguard of what would later be regarded the “California Sound”. Initially, the group were trying to think of something original and creative that they could write a song about. Brian Wilson remembers that “One day, my brother Dennis came home from the beach and said, ‘Hey, surfing’s getting really big. You guys ought to write a song about it.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
