Mike Love, Al Jardine and Brian Wilson are but Dennis Wilson and Carl Wilson aren't. After Carl and Dennis died Bruce Johnson, Ricky Fataar, Blondie Chaplin and David Marks joined the group.
The members and former members of The Beach Boys, in age order, are the following:
- Brian Wilson (born June 20, 1942)
- Mike Love (born March 15, 1941)
- Bruce Johnston (born June 27, 1942)
- Al Jardine (born September 3, 1942)
- Dennis Wilson (born December 4, 1944; died December 28, 1983)
- Carl Wilson (born December 21, 1946; died February 6, 1998)
- David Marks (born August 22, 1948)
- Blondie Chaplin (born Terrence William Chapman on July 7, 1951)
- Ricky Fataar (born September 5, 1952)
Two of the Boys have therefore passed away - Dennis drowned in California at the age of 39, and Carl of brain and lung cancer at the age of 51.
