The genius behind the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson is almost as well known for his personal problems as he is for his musical brilliance. His arrangements and harmonies on early Beach Boys productions had a powerful influence on young Lindsey Buckingham, who later went on to admire Wilson for making the choice to forego touring and concentrate solely on writing and record making. Wilson's song 'The Farmer's Daughter' was covered by Fleetwood Mac on their live album in 1980. Indeed, much of Buckingham's work on 1979's Tusk and 1984's Go Insane was compared to the 'quirky' style of his idol. Lindsey guested on Brian's solo album, Sweet Insanity and also appeared on Don Was's Wilson documentary, I Just Wasn't Made for These Times.
