>On December 28, three weeks after his 39th birthday, Dennis drowned at Marina Del Rey after drinking all day and then diving in the afternoon to recover his ex-wife’s belongings, previously thrown overboard at the marina from his yacht *three years earlier* amidst their divorce. Well that’s a drunk idea if I’ve ever heard one.

Dennis Wilson was afraid that he would not be buried at sea, to which President Reagan assured him: “Don’t worry baby… Everything will turn out alright”
