It took me 29 years to finish that song. That’s a typical Jardine move.

|Birth:||3rd September, 1942|
|Profession:||Actor, Composer, Singer|
Alan Charles Jardine is a founding member of the American music group The Beach Boys, a guitarist, composer and occasional lead vocalist. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the group in 1988. Jardine was born in Lima, Ohio. His family moved from Ohio to San Francisco, California, and later to Hawthorne, California. At El Camino College, Jardine met a fellow student, Brian Wilson where, recognizing Brian's unique musical gifts, he first posited the idea of forming a band. Jardine's primary musical interest was folk, and he learned banjo and guitar specifically to play folk music. Following his brief departure from the band in early 1962, he dabbled with a career in the air industry in Los Angeles. Popular belief suggests he was replaced by David Marks, but in fact the two guitarists worked more or less concurrently with the evolving Beach Boys and the confusion arises from Jardine's temporary abandonment of the band. Jardine fully rejoined the Beach Boys in the summer of 1963 at the request of Brian Wilson. Al worked alongside Marks with the band until October 1963, when Marks quit the Beach Boys after an altercation with the band's manager, Murry Wilson.
