Main Details







More »

The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City by Lou Reed and John Cale. Although the group achieved little commercial success during its career, they would later become recognized as one of the most important and influential musical groups of all time. Originally managed by Andy Warhol, the group served as the house band at the Factory and Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable events from 1966 to 1967. The provocative subject matter and often nihilistic attitudes explored in their music would prove massively influential in the development of punk rock and alternative music. Wikipedia
