Foggy Notion

Yesterday would've been the 68th birthday of Sterling Morrison ex and always of the Velvet Underground if tomorrow weren't the 15th anniversary of his passing. If you drew a straight line from Bo Diddley to The Edge, it would necessarily pass through SM's work with VU.

The following song's a tribute to Sterling who, after an academic career in Medieval/Renaissance lit decided to become a tugboat captain. Interesting life.

UPDATE: For example:


Rumor has it there are other birthdays around—some even with fit tribute.
