Brian Wilson's daughter Carnie (of Wilson Phillips fame) tells New York's Daily News that her father "is 72 and he's doing OK.  He is laying back a bit, which is about time."

She went on to say, "He has been on the road for 15 years, and he has continued to do whatever he wants."  Carnie, who works occasional gigs with her sister Wendy and Wilson Phillips pal Chynna Phillips, also adds, "I like to make him dinner and hang out, but I want him to slow down."

Brian Wilson was set to tour with Jeff Beck, but that fell through.  The two are not speaking much these days.  Beck called last fall's tour with Wilson "a bit of a nightmare" in comments he made recently.
