“What Brian and I had when we were young was really special,” Love says. “It was magical. We started singing together at an early age. We did the doo-wop thing. We did the Christmas singing. We did Gregorian chants. We came up with these ethereal harmonies. We’re a year apart. We were 11, 12 years old. We had a great relationship but it didn’t take long for things to get weird.”
Love is referring to Wilson’s well-documented mental illness.

But Wilson has been stable since the late ’90s. Wilson has been so together that he’s been touring for more than a decade. Wilson still hits his notes and often performs with an ear-to-ear grin.

“I’m happy doing what I’m doing,” Wilson says. “I don’t want to do anything else. I still get such great joy going up there on stage and playing these songs.”
