Abstract:

Were you one of the lucky few to witness the Happenings rocking the scene when rock was still new? Did something inside you awaken at the dawn of punk? Ever following its own muse, Velvet Underground needs no introduction to the faithful insiders who knew its greatness in '65 and, relishing the grunge and alternative sounds of the '90s, understand that VU began it all. For music lovers of any generation and seekers of the murky springwaters flowing into rock 'n' roll's wide river, The Velvet Underground Companion collects reviews, interviews with band members, and critical commentary that tells for posterity the true significance of this trailblazing band.
