Brian Wilson

Drug addiction and fame-induced stress sent Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson into a spiral of depression. After the death of his father in 1973, Wilson shut himself in his bedroom for two years, bingeing on drugs, food and alcohol. The Beach Boys cut ties with Wilson, who was eventually able to put his life back together with the help of family and doctors. The singer was later diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, a type of bipolar disorder.

Recently, Wilson has reluctantly dipped his toe into the spotlight for the sake of his art. He released a solo album called "No Pier Pressure" in April of 2015. The year prior he was also the subject of a biopic called "Love & Mercy." Click here to check out Wilson's recent interview with XFINITY. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (PHOTO: Ian Gavan/Getty)
