Jan & Dean had a profound affect on Rock & Roll history from doowop to surfing
“The Boys of Summer” is a 14-song CD collection that brings together Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson and Jan & Dean for the first time in their long history.
A chronologically ordered Q&A with Jan & Dean spanning 1993-2009, highlighting their early success.
‘Surf City’ topped Billboard Hot 100 in July 1963
In late 1963, Jan & Dean’s Drag City album tapped into a complete feel unlike any other of its time. As the album opened and the title track revved its way into pure machismo car bliss, you were literally taken to the drag strip with Jan & Dean. But, how they got there was a pretty story.
As the surviving member of Jan & Dean, Dean Torrence continues to tour keeping the spirit of the Jan & Dean name alive. 50 years after the release of "Baby Talk." Torrence is preparing for a performance at the Endless Summer Quarterly East Coast Fan Convention Sept. 12 and took time to talk with Goldmine about Jan & Dean.
