Re: John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

Story of My Life is on the setlist for Poor Richard's in Chicago June 23 - July 3, 1966, along with "PB Eyes" and some other oddities. Quite remarkable especially given that it was the first gig without Lou Reed. Weren't those the songs Lou secretly wanted to play but John wasn't having it? Sterlin...

Re: John Cale recorded five '3rd' album songs with VU?

those songs don't really lend themselves to Cale's distinctive talents, though,but I do recall reading something about him playing viola on Story of My Life back when they played it live in '68

If I recall correctly, they played TSGA at their first "official" concert at that high school in NJ in Nov 1965, right?

Re: VU Photo Thread

Nice shot. Typically Nico-centric, sadly. The press seems to have mistaken VU for her backing band. Note that Mo is once again playing the drums of the other band.

Re: Chic Mystique mystery

Have you read Uptight The Velvet Underground Story? One is mentioned in there. I don't recall a name. They would do things from time to time like perform with Allen Ginsburg.

Re: Chic Mystique mystery

We'll never know, but they did from time to time invite friends to play with them onstage, so who knows.
