Re: Magic and Loss is about Rachel, isn't it?

I haven’t heard it reported much but apparently at least one song is based about Lincoln Swados, he was Lou’s roommate at Syracuse University. 'Harry's Circumcision' is said to be written about him, I have always found this song a little out of keeping with the albums other songs - the theme is suic...

Re: VU Photo Thread

I found another one in my photo folder. There was a note about him being Sunn amplifiers photographer so its possible he shot the VU Sunn Amp ad 68/9. No location indicated of these LA EPI ones though.

Re: Rare, Rarest and Most Expensive VU items

I've often looked at the VU & Nico black sticker than was placed on the back of the sleeve to hide the torso and wondered whether anyone ever completely removed it in a Beatles Butcher sleeve style.
