Jerry Schilling : We were at a rehearsal session at RCA Studios in Hollywood, and Elvis always prided himself on our security. There was security at the studio as well. This big, overweight, bearded guy came into the studio and went right up to Elvis and went, 'Hi Elvis, I'm Brian'. And Elvis was very upset with us thinking, 'How did this guy get in here and who is he?' So Brian said, 'I'm recording next door. Would you come over and listen?' And Elvis looked at us; it's almost in spite of us since this guy had gotten through. He said, 'Yeah, I'll go over'.

So we went over, and Terry Melcher, Doris Day's son, was producing. Terry played a track for Elvis, and Brian said, 'Do you think we have anything?' And Elvis said, 'No'. And we went back to our studio. Later, the security guys told us it was Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys.
