Co-founding member of The Beach Boys, Al Jardine, is auctioning off the first-ever official non-fungible-token (NFT) from the iconic rock band from the ‘60s.

The artwork, offered in partnership with music producer and songwriter Larry Dvoskin on the SuperRare platform, was dropped at a floor price of ETH10 or around $4,100, while a portion of the net proceeds will go to MusiCares, the charitable partner of The Recording Academy.

The Wish NFT consists of artwork and music, along with an autographed skateboard signed in 2012 during the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary tour, by all five living Beach Boys: Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnstone and David Marks.

The platform said the collector will also get a call with Al Jardine, an MP3 copy of the full unreleased Wish, as well as two VIP tickets to a future Brian Wilson concert.

Wish story

According to the platform, Dvoskin recently performed Wish live on Clubhouse for over 6,000 people, after his friend and NFT evangelist Jin Wooyu aka WolfxLion unexpectedly passed away.

"Wish has taken ten thousand, two hundred and twenty-two days (10,222) days to complete. Its creation began in 1993 with Larry Dvoskin and Al Jardine sitting high above the clouds in Big Sur, California, at a café along the rugged California coast," according to the platform.

Dvoskin, who recently joined the metaverse platform NFT Oasis as vice president of Strategic Projects said: "Here is my wish. It's a prayer for a new awakening. Where we recognize all people as our brothers and sisters. Where we see how much we share in common, not our differences. Where we lay down our swords and turn them into ploughshares."
