Speechless!

It's the first time I ever saw Sterling playing a Gibson Firebird, by the way.

This clip was mentioned few years ago here. It is from early 80s German TV documentary about Warhol, including long interview with Henry Geldzahler.

Excerpts from rare Velvet Underground films were "bootleged" last year at VU exhibition in Paris.

yes, I was invited at the Opening ... probably too much exitement having Cale, Malnaga and Mekas just at my side. But i would say i "realxed" ate the lounge with the screens but do not remember having seeing the Open Stage film or the "Pizza", not tomention the Colour Venus in Furs!

Is somebody keeping track of the 100% confirmed (even if not quite leaked) footage?

That first clip is superb. That 2nd one is cool even though it's not VU onstage.

Such a great find Alfredo....The Venus in colour excerpt is totally amaizing,we need get the full thing.Regarding in Pizza eating
factory movie is so cool,seems dates arround Vinyl movie becuse of Gerald weights exercises is also new to me.Pharaphernalia set drves my crazy.

The EPI Open House filming is awewsome but I'm afraid not new, It's been a long time on net... pity no sound nor VU,but quite intresting BTW.

PS:Many thanks for the info.walkonvu and welcome !!

Because it's not :-)

Pause the video and look at them - they don't resemble them.
