The Velvet Underground Reunite (Well...Sort Of)

The Velvet Underground may be reuniting...but not for a performance unfortunately. Former frontman Lou Reed, bassist Doug Yule and drummer Maureen Tucker will be gathering for a public appearance at the New York Public Library on December 8th to chat with journalist David Fricke about their legacy and impact on the world of music.

The event is one of many in the “Live from the NYPL” that is currently going on and with any library of course comes books...which the band currently is promoting. The Velvet Underground: New York Art is the latest book on the band that contains a collection of handwritten music and lyrics by Lou Reed, designs by Andy Warhol (manager to the band) photographs and a load of other paraphernalia.
