Seems an interesting book, Mike.

It is, but don't expect great revelations, Warhol was a master in talkin' too much and revealing nothing. I read that some years ago and it left no lasting impression on me.

I'll let you know once I get through more of it Mo, I'm only up to '64 so far.
Coincidentally, on the 15th of this month they're reopening the Detroit Institute of Arts film theater after 19 months (masks mandatory and limited capacity) with the new Todd Haynes doc "The Velvet Underground".

Just finished Donovan's autobiography. Pretty good though he's quite full of himself. He Co invented World music and Celtic Rock etc
Reading now Tariq Ali's book Street Fighting Years.
