The Velvet Underground has been one of my favorite bands ever since the first time I heard them.
What I love about The Velvet Underground is that they’re so much more than music… They were the elite in street-style fashion as well as Andy Warhol did their art and management back in the 60′s and 70′s…

If you do know The Velvet Underground, you know that Lou Reed was the lead singer, songwriter and the coolest guy back then, but manager Andy Warhol didn’t think that was enough to get super-popular, so he told the band to get a beautiful lead singer, and they did. So then Nico joined the band. A dazzling woman with uhm, not the best voice, but listening to the songs makes you think you’re on drugs… In a positive way, of course…

I found this interview on YouTube a while back, and I love it…
Look how strung out they all are. Especially Andy, shaking his head all the time!

Oh, check out this video from the song Heroin!
