Lindsey had this to say about "D.W. Suite:" "D.W. Suite" really was written right after Dennis Wilson died. And uh, about two days after that happened - and I was quite upset by that - I locked myself in the studio and recorded this whole thing. I emerged a week later with the "D.W. Suite." It was, to me - the visual that I had - it can refer to anything obviously - going insane together- can refer to anything and anyone can relate to it in their own specific way. But I was thinking in terms of the Beach Boys, really, and the death of Dennis Wilson inspired the composing of this particular tune."
