You are so beautiful

21 Jun, 1980

Written by Dennis Wilson, Bruce Fisher and Billy Preston. Dennis Wilson performs the song during Beach Boys shows from 1975 until 1983. It is released by the Beach Boys on the album Good Timin’: Live at Knebworth England 1980 in 2002. Mike Love states:

Dennis had his issues with alcohol and drugs at the time and he’d put his hand through a plate glass window and cut his hand so it was hard for him to hold drum sticks. Ricky took over and did a great job. That’s when Dennis would go out to the front of the stage and sing You Are So Beautiful and we’d back him up.
