Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson has postponed his scheduled concerts this month due to feeling “mentally insecure.” Page Six reports that the 76-year-old shared the news with fans in a letter posted on his website Thursday. “I had every intention to do these shows and was excited to get back to performing. I’ve been in the studio recording and rehearsing with my band and have been feeling better,” he wrote. “But then it crept back and I’ve been struggling with stuff in my head and saying things I don’t mean and I don’t know why.” Wilson has long battled mental health problems, and was previously diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. He’s also had three back surgeries in the past year.
