    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.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
