Mike Love, co-founder of The Beach Boys, has officially released "Pisces Brothers," a solo single in tribute to The Beatles' George Harrison, who would have been 71 yesterday, February 25.
The previously unreleased track was written in 2004 and inspired by a shared trip to India in 1968 when Love joined The Beatles, Donovan, actress Mia Farrow and others in search of spiritual enlightenment through the teachings of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
So it's rich in history.
For Love, the song is a special reminiscence.
He said, "This being the 50th anniversary of The Beatles coming to America, I wanted to commemorate this incredibly significant trip we all took together to India, at the Maharishi's invitation. It was enormously influential on all of us, most especially George. The song is really sentimental for me, and meant to honor George Harrison's remarkable contribution to music. And how, in this one moment in time, we got together, as the song says, not fortune or for fame, but for enlightenment."
Mike Love titled the song "Pisces Brothers," as he and Harrison shared the same astrological sign, and celebrated their birthdays together in India. A number of Beatles and Beach Boys songs grew out of the 1968 trip including the Beatles' "Dear Prudence" and "Sexy Sadie" as well as The Beach Boys "Anna Lee, the Healer." Love has continued the practice of Transcendental Meditation for over 40 years.
