Destacado: I first met Lou at a party and he played his songs with an acoustic guitar, so I really didn’t pay any attention because I couldn’t give a shit about folk music. I hated Joan Baez and Dylan—every song was a fucking question! But Lou kept shoving these lyrics in front of me. I read them, and they weren’t what Joan Baez and all those other people were singing

Destacado: thing that distinguished them the most. And they had the drummer who was totally androgynous, there was absolutely no way of telling if Maureen Tucker was a boy or a girl. So those were the big attractions.

Destacado: But people that were most “in-loved-with” were the people, I think, who fucked the least—like Andy. I mean the people who you really know went to bed with Andy, you could count on the fingers of one hand. The people who really went to bed with Edie or Lou or Nico were very, very few. There really wasn’t that much sex, there were more crushes than sex.

Destacado: Lou had these songs where there was an element of character assassination going on. He had strong identification with the characters he was portraying. It was Method acting in song

Destacado: That’s why I instantly loved the Velvets’ music. It was about urban street stuff, it was about kink, it was about sex—some of it was about sex that I didn’t even know about, but I was learning

Destacado: The press played it like it was ironic confrontation, which it wasn’t at all. We didn’t shock anybody. Psychiatrists may be stiff but they all have a sense of humor, and they’re all intelligent. It was more playful than confrontational. Barbara Rubin would do these things like set off light flashes in their eyes, or stick the mike in their faces, you know, that confrontational technique

Destacado: Nico started hanging out with Warhol, who had been collecting this freak show. That’s all Andy Warhol had—a freak show—and that’s what attracted everybody. He had this place called the Factory and it was like a sideshow—”Come look at the freaks!

Destacado: We were doing a specific thing that was very, very real. It wasn’t slick or a lie in any conceivable way, which was the only way we could work with him. Because the very first thing I liked about Andy was that he was very real

Destacado: we really didn’t have any money, and we used to eat oatmeal all day and all night and give blood, among other things, or pose for these nickel or fifteen cent tabloids they had every week.

Destacado: There were all these beatnik coffee shops in the West Village that were going out of business, so they were trying to make a transition from beatniks and folk singing to some sort of rock & roll.

Destacado: Ronnie Cutrone: The sixties have a reputation for being open and free and cool, but the reality was that everybody was straight. Everybody was totally straight and then there was us—this pocketful of nuts. We had long hair, and we’d get chased down the block. People would chase you for ten blocks, screaming, “Beatle!”

Destacado: Andy didn’t want to do it, he never would have thought of it. Even after I thought of it, I had to bludgeon him into doing it. I know that you want to think that ANDY wanted to do this, and andy wanted to do that, everything was generated from andy. If you knew the actual operation of what happened at the Factory, you’d understand that Andy did nothing, and expected everybody to do everything for him.

Destacado: Andy Warhol swanned into the Cafe Bizarre with his crew you could tell he was hypnotized right off the bat. Image was all, and the Velvet Underground certainly had it.

Destacado: we dressed in black leather, they dressed in wild colors. They were like, “Oh wow man, a happening!” We were like reading Jean Genet. We were S&M; and they were free love. We really liked gay people, and the West Coast was totally homophobic. So they thought we were evil and we thought they were stupid.

Destacado: because I heard other people who could make good music—without being any good at music. It gave me hope. It was the same thing the first time I heard Mick Jagger sing. He can only sing one note, there’s no tone, and he just goes, “Hey, well baby, baby, I can be oeweowww . . .” Every song is the same monotone, and it’s just this kid rapping. It was the same with the Velvets. The sound was so cheap and yet so good.
