The picture used is one that I have never seen before.  It is a different angle I believe of the commonly published picture. Kind of a mystery.

Surf City

The Jan and Dean Story

By Dean Torrence   

The Jan and Dean Story is a personal story of the iconic musician and entrepreneur Dean Torrence. As a memoir The Jan and Dean Story has elements of humor, tragedy and redemption. It tells their story from the early high school friendship struck up between Jan Berry and Dean Torrence and their ascent to the dizzying heights of stardom riding the crest of the “surf” craze. The Jan and Dean Story is as much about the culture of the 1960s as it is about music. Dean has lived an incredible life and continues to promote a lifestyle and surf culture that is now universally admired and followed throughout the world.
The story also recounts Jan’s tragic car accident and his ability to recover enough to continue to perform will be inspiring to many readers even those not familiar with surf music. For pop culture addicts and music buffs alike this book is indispensable. As early teen icons, Jan and Dean left an indelible mark on the music of the 60’s and the American psyche.
Dean Torrence is still touring and creating music and often appears with the Beach Boys and other groups from the heyday of surf music.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Dean & Social Media

I have seen it mentioned here that Dean does not like social media but he does have an active Instagram account and posts great pictures.  His Instagram account is listed as deantorrence.  His favorite subject seems to be pictures of street rods with flames painted on them.

If you could hear The Beach Boys in concert sing any song from the Second Wave album comma which one would it be?

Yep!  An old gay man is keeping Jan & Dean out of the R&R Hall of Fame!

[Fixed it for you . . . No derogatory labels for people.]

Looks like he came out of the closet in 1995?

I believe Carnival of Sound is better than Smile and Pet Sounds put together.
