Danger Mouse, Van Dyke Parks, and John Cale

Not a whole lot going on in the Advanced World, but there is this, from NME:
Danger Mouse has revealed that he is working with the legendary collaborator Van Dyke Parks. The collaboration came about when Danger Mouse produced the forthcoming second album from The Shortwave Set recently. The album, currently under the working title ’Replica Sun Machine’, will also feature a collaboration with Velvet Underground’s John Cale.

I don't know anything about Danger Mouse. Is he Eek-A's cousin?

Danger Mouse did the "Grey Album" the famous mashup of the White Album and Jay-Z's black album. He is also 1/2 of Gnarls Barkley. No relation to Eek-A, Mighty, or Mickey.

Being a "legendary collaborator" may be advanced. John Cale is just a regular collaborator because he is known for something other than his collaborations.

...kinda like Joe Cocker being a "legendary song coverer"
