You may know Van Dyke Parks as the distinguished composer, musician, producer and lyricist that he is. A friend and collaborator of Brian Wilson Beach Boys’ album Smile, he’s also the man responsible for the classic score of Follow That Bird, a producer whose worked with a diverse array of artists from Harry Nilsson to Joanna Newson to Bonnie Raitt. We got to know Van Dyke Parks as a man of even greater ambition. For a start, he’d like to rewrite the constitution, as well as the score for The Greatest Story Ever Told (and we don’t blame him–it could use some work.) He’s also not a fan of Nero. Find out a dozen other things you didn’t know about Van Dyke Parks as he takes the Bullett questionnaire for a test drive.
