A friend of mine is reading Brian Wilson's autobiography and emailed me this excerpt. Poor Brian, he really wasn't on this planet was he?
"I thought for sure I was going to die when Danny dragged me to a party
Alice Cooper was throwing in his suite at the Beverly Wiltshire Hotel... I
walked into Alice's suite. The music was strange and loud. The people
were worse. Some had makeup, others were in costume. I looked around,
petrified, standing motionless in the same spot where I entered. After
about ten minutes a skinny guy with a crazed look on his face bounced
across some furniture and landed in front of me.
"Boo!" he said. He scared me, and I turned completely around. He thought
I was funny and laughed.
"You're Brian Wilson," he said.
"Yeah", I said, wanting him to go away.
"I'm Iggy", he said. "Iggy Pop".
Before meeting Iggy, I was ready to leave, and his boo accelerated my
intentions. I found Danny. Seeing me uptight, he tried to relax me by
introducing me to Alice Cooper. Like Iggy, he was nicer than his getup led
me to believe. But I couldn't handle the party and all the people. I told
Danny I had to get out as soon as possible.
That was okay. But somehow, in the process of leaving, both Alice and Iggy
were invited to continue the party at my house. They accepted. But my
idea of a party was different from theirs.
Up at my house, I positioned everyone around the piano and began playing
the children's song "Shortnin' Bread". With me singing lead, I got Alice
to repeat "mama, mama, mama" and Iggy to chant "shortnin', shortnin',
shortnin'". Thinking something was up my sleeve, they enjoyed this bizarre
situation for about fifteen minutes. But after an hour of singing
"Shortnin' Bread" they realised that either I really was as off the deep
end as rumor had it or I was having fun at their expense. In truth, it was
a combination of both. Either way, they left.
"This is too much for us", Iggy said. "Too damn weird." "
I love how Brian's idea of a party was 'different' from Iggy and Alice's... But really, how weird must Wilson have been to have freaked out Iggy?

More literature recommended with substantial appearances by the Ig: the new, self-demythologizing Nick Kent tome "Apathy for the Devil."
