Bruce Johnston (Beach Boys)

Plymouth Pavilions

This photograph was taken on Tuesday Nov 9th, 2004 outside of the Plymouth Pavilions.

Bruce Johnston History:

Johnston's first vocal recording with the Beach Boys was on "California Girls".

He also wrote the Barry Manilow hit, ( "I Write the Songs") for which he won a Grammy. "I Write The Songs" has been recorded by over two hundred artists (including Frank Sinatra) and it currently has a cumulative singles/albums worldwide sales figure of twenty-five million copies.

This song many people mistakenly assume was written by Barry Manilow, who had a massive hit with this song.

Bruce Johnson wrote "Disney Girls" which was recorded by the Beach Boys on their 1971 alum, "Surf's Up".  Art Garfunkel also recorded this song.

This song is one of my favourites. You can hear a short extract of my recorded version of "Disney Girls" at this link.
