Beach Boys Landmark - Hawthorne, CA

In 2004 I won a lawsuit. My union, IATSE Local 857, stuck it to the man and made me realize the importance of having no respect for management. With some of the windfall I invested in a local landmark - The Wilson Brothers home. California historical landmark 1041 commerates the home of the Wilson brothers - Brian, Carl and Dennis who would go on to start the Beach Boys. Granted this site is the home to countless physical and emotional abuses but on a larger scale it brought the world the Beach Boys. Check it out if you have a chance. There are few historical markers in Hawthorne and as long as Emmit Rhodes is holed up in his house, it won't become a historic landmark any time soon.
