Phil Spector, Kurt Boettcher and there’s no denying he'd had an unhealthy interest in the music of the Beach Boys for some years. He’d acquired a CD of Brian Wilson sat inside a piano banging away at the strings with a hammer, whilst someone tried to hit the right notes on the keys to find just that right tone.
