ABC/Randy HolmesMaybe launching the Beach Boys‘ career counts as extra credit.

Back in the early 1960s, Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson got a F in a high school music class for a song that turned out to be “Surfin’,” the Beach Boys’ first single.

On Monday, Wilson returned to Hawthorne High School and had the grade changed.

“Brian’s failing grade has now been changed to an A on this assignment by Dr. Landesfeind!,” reads a post on Wilson’s Twitter account. The post features a picture of Wilson with a beaming Hawthorne High School Principal Vanessa Landesfeind. Wilson is holding a Student Grade Form signed by Landesfeind that approves the grade change.

You can grade Wilson for yourself when Brain head back out on the road. He’ll be delivering a final Pet Sounds concert performance in Washington D.C. at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall on May 7. He also has dates scheduled in the south east later in the month including a trio of concerts taking place May 10-12 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville during which Wilson will be accompanied by the Nashville Symphony.
