I cannot give you the alternative explanation, but I found some references 
that may be helpful. One of the authors was Wally Lamb from Yale.

Lamb, W.E., Jr. & Scully, M.O., 1969 The photoelectric effect
without photons, in: Polarisation matière et rayonnement,
Presses Univ Fr (Paris), 363-369.

Or another source suggests:
W. Lamb, M. Scully and L. Mandel(Progress in Optics vol.13)
This source is not available to me.
