The Beach Boys Dennis Wilson Was Beyond Wasted For This Good Morning America Interview

On December 5, 1980, The Beach Boys were interviewed on Good Morning America to promote their upcoming 20th year anniversary as a band. The interview didn’t go so well as Dennis Wilson was so wasted he could not even sit down. There is Dennis on the far right slumped back on the couch.

The Beach Boys had all sorts of internal issues, at the height of their fame Brian Wilson didn’t want to leave his house. Check it out…
