VDP's contribution to Smile is arguably some of his greatest creative work (at least, historically speaking). It must be a very personal subject for him and if he's been shafted over it (presumably, judging by the shift in his attitude towards BW post 2011) then I can understand some of the bitterness. I think suddenly calling him a 'dick' seems unnecessary, especially when we are missing an awful lot of the picture.

Wasn't based on just that...I was one of two people here who were called out by him in an interview  (Mike Eder was the other ) without provocation.  He likes to run his mouth and talk crap about people,  well I can return the favor.  That's what he does.

Did he just single you out for no reason or was he responding to criticisms youíd made? What did he say?

Finally clicked on this, another poorly named thread (sorry, I write newspaper headlines as a side gig), and once again found myself wondering what I'm missing about VDP.

Maybe it's because a song's lyrics are the last thing I appreciate or analyze. Maybe it's because I'm pretty nonplussed by the Smile lyrics and can't will myself to like Orange Crate Art. Whatever it is, I must be missing something here, because obviously there's a reason he's been deemed legendary. I suppose I should care about his tweets and spats with other artists.  I'm trying.

Amy B is right, and I agree with Billy - All of this stuff with Van Dyke and Mike taking public swipes at Brian and airing these grievances to the fans, it's so one-sided it makes the whole thing even more absurd. Brian could unload and have every right to do so, but he does not. And that may speak as much to why so many love and show their love to Brian Wilson whenever he performs or just overall. It's respect, and unless someone can find an example of Brian in the recent past taking any public swipes at Mike, Van Dyke, or anyone else related that would warrant those being hurled at him (and his family), I can't think of any. It's not how he is. In fact, if anything Brian has been complimentary of both men when he could have easily laid them out publicly and been right on the money.

Maybe I should reboot the challenge from a few years ago and offer up a nice bottle of red wine, maybe a port or something heavier than the previous bottle of white, to coincide with the Fall and holiday seasons upon us, to anyone who can find a recent interview or Tweet where Brian publicly took a jab at either Mike Love or Van Dyke Parks.

VDP is a guy writing his own tweets on his own Twitter account, he doesn't have PR people telling him what to say. Same with ML, he's a minor celebrity who obviously answers only to himself. BW has a carefully orchestrated career and image. In interviews, he either clams up and says nothing at all, or he sticks to PR-friendly and uncontroversial statements. What I mean is that we have a glimpse of the real VDP or ML, warts and all. But BW? Who's to say what he's like now in his private life? What does he say when he's by himself with friends, with no reporter around? It's hard to say.

Itís not really hard to say. On this very site, and elsewhere, people who have been around Brian Wilson casually have talked about what he is like in private. He can be a very sweet guy, a wild guy, a shy guy, etc.. Iím sure he also has his opinions about certain people that he keeps to those private moments.

And during interviews? Youíre saying thatís not the real Brian acting nervous and annoyed that heís being inteviewed usually by people who donít really care? Thatís the real Brian right there. Thatís not someone being controlled to act like a nervous wreck, thatís actually how Brian feels during some of those interviews. But the real Brian is also someone who will open up and talk at length to certain reporters heís comfortable around. Billy knows of one great interview (I forget whatís itís from, but itís on YouTube) when Brian seems to be unstoppable in a great conversation about music. Brian is a multi-angled type of person...whatever angle you get just depends on his mood at the time.

The difference between Brian and Mike/VDPs is that Brian has tact. Itís not that PR people are telling him ďBrian, please donít go after Mike Love in this interviewĒ because Brian has never stooped to that level to begin with. Heís a genuine nice guy who doesnít publicly sh*t on the hard work of others (unlike Mike). Thatís the real Brian Wilson, again not someone created in a marketing dept but thatís just who he is. Iíve no doubt he has his opinions about Mike behind closed doors, but again, thereís the difference between Mike and Brian: Brian has enough tact to not share a negative opinion to the media.

Exactly - agreed. Airing out dirty laundry or taking swipes via social media and interviews with The Small Town Gazette "weekender" insert while plugging a live show isn't tactful, nor does it show class to fans reading it. What people say or need to say in private isn't the same as airing it out to thousands of people reading. That behavior should be left in the territory of Nicki Minaj, not men in their 70's.

I honestly have no idea. I might have said something that he didn't like. Either that, or a certain someone might have told him something I said via pm.

It was an interview at a Guitar Center, of all things.

I'm actually not surprised it was at a GC where he opened up more about music - Maybe he was more comfortable because he felt he was with other musicians, "his people". It's been said many times that Brian in the studio is not the Brian seen or heard in press interviews, which makes perfect sense. That's his place.

I say this too because I saw G.E. Smith who was musical director for Saturday Night Live from the mid-80's to the early 90's talking about when Valerie Bertinelli was the guest host, and her husband Eddie Van Halen came to the week's rehearsals at NBC with her. Eddie looked uncomfortable, so G E invited him to come to the offices they had set up for the musicians in the band and just hang out, relax, shoot the sh*t about music with the other players. As soon as Eddie did that, he was in his element, he was happy, and as G E said it was because he was with "his people", the musicians. He didn't relate to the TV or showbiz stuff as much as chilling out with the musicians. And it was such a good thing that Eddie ended up unannounced guesting on guitar with G E and the SNL band during the commercial breaks, playing guitar on an appearance that alot of fans still remember who were watching.

It could be about being in the comfort zone, talking about things like a good groove and listening to great records versus being asked "how does it feel to be on tour?" and all the usual questions.

I think VDPs ĎDiscover Americaí is one of the coolest albums ever made

You're not alone in that assertion. Easily in my top 10.

I gave it a try. Sorry, I guess I'm just not a fan of VDP's solo stuff. That said, I love the work he did with Brian on OCA.   

Agreed about OCA. The ironic thing for me is that out of everything Brian has done away from the BB, this has my favorite production and arrangements.  Shame about the ghastly lyrics.

The thing I really like about OCA is how Brian actually did something that didn't attempt to sound like Beach Boys music from '65 or '66. It sounds worthy of a solo career, if that makes sense. I think it's a very cool record, even though the vocals sound pretty strained here and there. Nice cover art too!
Oh, I love that cover art, and I even like most of the lyrics. Brian's vocals are awesome! The only poor track vocally is Hold Back Time. Now supposedly it is a duet with Danny Hutton, but it sounds like two Brian's to me - two Brian's slightly out of synch with each other. It's very emotional music for me, reminds me of when the album came out - by far, the happiest time in my life. My life had become like a movie - magical. Then suddenly, one day, it was back to real life. Real life is tragic.

Twitter beefs and swipes are the territory of "stars" like Nicki Minaj and B-list rappers, not musicians of the caliber of a Van Dyke Parks. What's next, a "diss track" coming from Van Dyke?  Cheesy

Aren't twitter beefs usually two-sided, though? I don't think anyone usually responds to Van Dyke. It's not like Brian gets on Twitter and starts returning the barbs.
Brian has too much class to respond back, unlike a certain hipster douchebag.  Can you imagine it though, if Brian actually went on Twitter and just unloaded on those that have either f***ed him over or disrespected him for no reason?  Will never happen, obviously, but man if anybody has the right to unload, it's Brian. He's earned it.

Brian is not articulate enough to respond to any barbs and his interests likely lie elsewhere, as in what he is having for his next meal....

And production aside, Iíd so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Ironic you complain about Brian not responding to criticism when you yourself donít respond to anyone who replies to your inane garble.

Cause he's a troll and just doing it to parody the anti -Mike stuff. I've seen windows less transparent.
