Brian’s Circle Of Ether

Back, long long ago when the internet was young (10 years exactly, to be precise), web rings were one of the best ways to find sites about the topic of your interest. To try to spread the gospel of Brian Wilson, I set up the Brian Wilson Web Ring to help link up all the Brian Wilson and related sites that people were setting up. At the high point, there were over 100 sites, showing the interest that Brian and the Beach Boys had the internet.

The dot.com crash and emergence of blogs and networking sites, as well as powerful search engines like google, has reduced the impact of web rings, and the number of sites has reduced a bit, but it is still worth seeking out for some less well-known sites dedicated to Brian, or bands and people inspired by his music.
