Al Jardine is an American musician with a net worth of forty million dollars. Born in Lima, Ohio, Al Jardine subsequently moved to California, and graduated from El Camino College. While at El Camino, Brian Wilson, and the seeds for the band, The Beach Boys was met by him, had been planted. A multi instrumentalist with a love of folk music, Mr. Jardine was initially disappointed with The Beach Boys decision to concentrate on roll and rock. After recording with them for the first song of theirs, "Surfin'", he stepped out from the band and also focused on a career in aviation. He ultimately returned to the team, and although they'd found another guitarist, Dave Marks, he eventually took over full time responsibilities as guitarist, and Mr. Marks left the team. He went onto a massively thriving career with The Beach Boys, and has also enjoyed a moderately successful solo career. In addition to touring and performing with the Beach Boys, and releasing the own music of his, he also wrote the children's book, "Sloop John B: A Pirate's Tale", which was dependent holding a folk song.
