Dennis Wilson

Dennis Carl Wilson, born December 4, 1944 in Inglewood, California, was an American drummer, singer and songwriter, best known as a founding member and drummer of The Beach Boys.

He recorded 24 studio albums with The Beach Boys, and in 1977, released a solo album, Pacific Ocean Blue, to widespread critical acclaim.

Dennis Wilson was a member of The Beach Boys from its formation (along with his brothers, Brian and Carl, and cousin, Mike Love) until his death on December 28, 1983.

The Drummer is a biopic film on the life of Dennis Wilson that has been in the works since 2011, and has yet to be released. Aaron Eckhart was contracted to play Dennis Wilson in the movie, however, he decided he wasn't a good enough drummer... so out of respect turned the part down. Gregg Jakobson, Wilson's long-time friend and movie collabrator, wants Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins, to play Dennis Wilson, but Hawkins has just been cast as Iggy Pop in a new Documentary film... so The Drummer, is now shelved and may in fact never be made.
