Re: Todd Haynes docu announcement

bu The doc makes it seem as though Moe was missing because she was pregnant, then Sterling left (which is just flat out wrong - that happened during the early post-Lou era), and then Lou left.

A short review from the BBC that puts this film in the context of streaming services and other "rock docs".

What use would Warhol have made of streaming? Any thoughts anyone?

Re: Maureen Tucker Documentary

Cam, have you included Moe's dislike of bootleggers in your documentary? It's reported in The Bob magazine from 1994 which can be seen if you download the "Phase 14" pdf from this link and read your way to the foot of page 3. Sadly, the pdf is non-searchable. https://c.mail.com/@652099718028993115/k...

Re: Allen Midgette, an Ersatz Andy Warhol, Dies at 82

I don't mean to be irreverent or disrespectful, but I can't help wondering if AM inspired Lou-the-joker to write Ferryboat Bill.

Any thoughts anyone?

Re: Lou Reed Demos

Interesting - didn't know that Kill Yr Sons dated back to the first LP demos It may date back further. I can't remember where I first heard that it was a lost VU song, but it may well have been on the old "yellow" VU forum. According to some posts on this current forum, Sal Mercuri posted on the ye...

Re: The Velvet Underground 3rd - back cover editions

With "Story" credits to Cale Tucker & Morrison - is that legit?
