    Beach Boys - Brian Painting by Blondie Chaplin (2011). Brain Wilson is much more than the founding member of The Beach Boys -- he's an enigma, a musical mystery man as complex as his famous SMiLE suite of songs (that took forty years to finish). Singer/guitarist Blondie Chaplin knows the man as well as anyone; it was Blondie who sang the much-loved Beach Boys song "Sail On Sailor" on the band's Holland album. Mr. Chaplin has been recently called "Rock and Roll's Zelig" due to the fact he's turned up everywhere: touring for twenty years with the Rolling Stones, replacing the late Richard Manuel in The Band, even taking part in the recent Brain Wilson/Jeff Beck tour that sold out shows across the country; most recently, he's been working on Brian's upcoming solo album. This auction marks the first time Blondie has sold any of his paintings; this one gives us his first-hand impression of this musical giant. Naturally, it's a complex painting done in mixed media on stretched canvas with added bits of painted paper or board, measuring 18" x 24". The art is signed on the wooden canvas frame (the reverse side), and is in Excellent condition.
