In 1966, Brian Wilson entered the studio to compose Smile, a Beach Boys album that he believed would change the band, and perhaps the face of popular music, forever. What happened next became legend, as captured by journalist Jules Siegel, who had been given entry into Wilsons inner circle. Goodbye Surfing, Hello God ran in Cheetahmagazine, helping to create the legend and mystery of Wilsons madcap genius. Then the story, like the album, disappeared. Now The Atavist has brought to life Siegels 1967 classic. Its the tale of a musicians struggle against his own demons to capture greatness on tape, and to top the Beatles in the process.
