Happy Birthday John Cale

Welsh musician, songwriter, a founding member of the Velvet Underground and member of the Order of the British Empire (I was surprised too!)  John Cale was born today in 1942. John says, “I want to get lean and mean, keep it minimalist.” and “If you’re all loaded up on love, you haven’t got anywhere else to go.” and “The only reason we wore sunglasses onstage was because we couldn’t stand the sight of the audience. and “We’d hold a chord for three hours if we could.” See and hear John perform Heartbreak Hotel live on Musical Express in 1981.
