    Brian loved the harmonies of The Four Freshmen. As a teenager, he would sit in his room and listen to their songs over and over until he had every vocal part memorized. He would then gather up his cousin Mike Love, two brothers Carl and Dennis, and friend Al Jardine and teach them the different vocal parts. Brian would them have them sing over and over until they were harmonizing just right.
