The Dead Straight Guide
The Velvet Underground and Lou Reed - Book - by Peter Hogan
The Velvet Underground were one of the most influential bands in rock sowing the seeds for punk, grunge and thousands of countercultural four-chord wonders. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Moe Tucker mixed arty experimentation with primal rock’n’roll. Joined by the ice queen singer Nico and infamously managed by Andy Warhol, the Velvets brought the hip decadence of Sixties New York to the world.
