Michael Vosse (1941 – January 20, 2014)[1][better source needed] was an American writer and A&M Records publicist.


During the 1960s, Vosse was an acquaintance of record producer David Anderle[2] and the Beach Boys' leader Brian Wilson, working under his employment as an assistant.[3][4] Vosse participated in the making of the unfinished album Smile, later reporting Wilson's infamous apprehensiveness upon hearing the Beatles' 1967 single "Strawberry Fields Forever".[5] Two years later, he expounded on his side of the Smile story within an editorial for the publication Fusion,[6] and in 2004, appeared as himself for the documentary Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson and the Story of Smile.[7]

Following his relationship with the Beach Boys, Vosse worked for the Monterey Pop Festival committee,[8] and then as an assistant to the vice president of A&M Records, and was involved with the Flying Burrito Brothers.[9][10] He was assigned by the label to accompany them during their infamous cross-country tour in the late 1960s.[11]

In 1987, Vosse wrote, produced and narrated the television special "The Music Never Stopped" for KGO-TV.[citation needed]
