I’m sticking with you... ‘cause I’m made out of glue... .
#velvetunderground .
Side note: Velvet Underground’s “I’m Sticking With You” is one of the sweetest music videos ever. B&W, stop-motion, made with love.

#Andy Wharhol
“Yes, I’m Bananas- You Are Your T-shirt” I first met David Sobel (pronounced “So-BELL) while shooting my photo blogs, @everybodygetsshotinla and @youareyourtshirt. David lives in my neighborhood and every once in a while I would see this whacked-out, wizardry-looking dude who looked like a refugee from a Greenwich Village time portal circa 1967. In a future posting I’ll tell you about the first time I photographed David- without him even knowing it, although I was literally standing right next to him. But here you see him when I stopped to capture his Andy Warhol pop art banana t-shirt for my photo gallery @YouAreYourTshirt. What I didn’t realize that day was that David was addicted to much worse than bananas, and over the months to come would successfully overcome a destructive heroin habit. One day, months later, having kicked the habit and begun his path to recovery, I saw him walking down the street with his hair and beard shaved off, a new man. Had I not seen him clean shaven I probably wouldn’t have envisioned him as the lead in my movie. So shaving his beard and hair not only symbolized a fresh start, it actually opened up a new portal in his life- acting- as others, or at least I, could see him in a new light.

British musician who played bass in #TubewayArmy, and later for #GaryNuman; with whom he had 3 consecutive no.1 albums.

A new one for the rock library.
by Anthony Decurtis ©2017 Little, Brown & Company
Hardcover, 519 pages

From NPR: Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis knew Velvet Underground co-founder Lou Reed and considered him a friend. So when it came time to write a biography of the late singer-songwriter, DeCurtis knew exactly what kind of book he would pen. "I wanted to write a book that took Lou ... seriously," DeCurtis says. "The kind of book that I was going to write about Lou was the kind of book he deserved." As part of his research, DeCurtis interviewed many people Reed knew, including his first two wives. His biography, Lou Reed: A Life, paints a portrait of a complicated man who loved pop music, experimented with drugs and sex and had a history of domestic abuse.

DeCurtis acknowledges that Reed, who died in 2013, may not have approved of all of the material in the book. But, he says, "It wasn't like I had to go looking for the drugs and the sex. Lou wrote about it. It was just out there, so I felt it was fair game."
