Re: Newspaper pics of VU EPI in SF in 1966

Looking at the one above it seems like Moe used The Mothers drum set? Or is it perhaps in front of her?
She didn't use a kick-drum -- not a properly-facing one, at any rate -- so your guess of "in front of her" is probably correct.

If I'm not mistaken this frame shows Hetty McGee (who'd marry Angus MacLise) and Severin Darden. I hope they were on the guest list!

Re: Dead Straight Guide To Velvet Underground And Lou Reed

I don't want to read ANY author's opinion of whether an album is good/bad - especially in the context of a non-fiction book. Let music critics worry about that.
Where is it written that journalists can't also be critics?

I only want it if it's an original -- there seems little chance that...

Re: William Kermit Smith

here's a pic of that rat Steve Sesnick
Two cites of White Light/White Heat in that one caption, neither of which get it right and which don't even agree with one another. And, how odd to see such squares in a pic about a celebration for Velvet Underground!
