Walked out of a recording session with Jan in 1965 during an argument, and learned The Beach Boys
were working on their "Beach Boys' Party" album at the same studios, so he joined their session. When the Beach Boys were stuck for another song to record, he suggested The Regents' "Barbara Ann" - which became the hit single from the album. ("Thanks, Dean" can be heard in the fadeout.)
