Alan Charles Jardine (born September 3, 1942) is an American musician and singer-songwriter. He co-founded the Beach Boys. He is best known as the band's guitarist. Also a singer, he sang in "Help Me, Rhonda" (1965), "Come Go with Me" (1978), and "From There to Back Again" (2012). His song "Lady Lynda" became a UK top 10 hit for the group in 1978.
