In the mid-1960s, Jules Siegel had a brief, close acquaintance with Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. In addition to several others who comprised a coterie of journalists and businessmen. Siegel accompanied Wilson for much of the Smile era. Siegel, who had recently migrated from New York to Los Angeles, was impressed with Wilson, and he documented his experiences for an article which he had presold for The Saturday Evening Post. Ultimately, as Siegel claims in the piece, the magazine rejected his story due his overly enthusiastic depiction of Wilson's material. It was instead published in the magazine Cheetah, which is now defunct.
