A coffee table guide to the Velvet Underground that's a great Sunday Morning read.
The Rough Guide to The Velvet Underground explores the Velvet story. The Alfred book documents how Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, John Cale, and the others emerged from the New York scene, their successes and excesses, and what happened to each in their solo years. Sporting shades and producing feedback-heavy sounds, the Velvets straddled art and rock, changing popular music forever and sowing the seeds for punk, grunge, and thousands of countercultural four-chord wonders.
Part One: Velvet Story: Everybody who was anybody in the Velvet's world, taking in Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, David Bowie, Delmore Schwartz, and Brian Eno.
Part Two: Velvet Music: From their 1967 debut with Nico to their 1993 reunion with all the tales behind the tunes.
Part Three: Velvet Goldmine: The "Underground" on screen, the Velvets' in New York, clubs, influences, covers, websites, and more.
