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.

Following the death of fellow band member Carl Wilson in 1998, Jardine left the touring Beach Boys and became a solo artist. In 1988, Jardine was added into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Beach Boys.[1]
