he briefly mentioned working with Brian Wilson on this thread on reddit:

http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/n2lj5/iama_grammy_award_winning_songwriter_jim_peterik/

sadly he left before anyone asked what, if anything, came out of these sessions. he also said that the one song he wished he had written is GOK.

does anyone here know what they might have worked on? seems like quite an unlikely pairing!

Why would it be an unlikely pairing?  He's a professional songwriter and producer.

Peterik also co-wrote "Your Imagination." He's not given a credit in the album, but he's listed as a co-author in the BMI database.

Interesting! Do we know of any more "hidden" credits?

He also joined Brian's band for a couple of the early shows in March of '99.
