If you look up the phrase 'glorious racket,' chances are a picture of the Velvet Underground's second album, 'White Light, White Heat' will appear. That description fits each and every one of its 40 minutes perfectly. Unlike the haunting beauty of their flawless debut album, 'White Light,' which was released on Jan. 30, 1968, drops a bit of the artiness and supplements it with rage and raw power.
Guitarist Steve Hunter, an original member of Alice Cooper's band and a critically acclaimed recording artist in his own right, has been admitted to a Phoenix hospital after suffering from an irregular heartbeat.
‘What Goes On’ in your mind when you see a Velvet Underground single such as this? One quick glance at this rare picture sleeve is enough to get dollar signs dancing in your head if you're a collector. Need proof? Well, one sold for $1675.00 during an eBay auction last week.

It's onward and upward for Lou Reed! Fresh off last year's 'Lulu' collaboration with Metallica, Reed, who turns 70 next month, is taking his music back on the road in retrospective style. The tour, called 'From VU To Lulu,' will see Lou tramping all over Europe delivering songs from the Rock and Roll Hall

Or has it?
Radio personality Howard Stern was among those dismissing it when it dropped, but he has since changed his tune after being won over by the 19-minute long closing track, 'Junior Dad.' He even took to the satellite airwaves on Monday morning (Jan. 30) to rave about the tune.
Lou Reed has collaborated with artists Ulrich Krieger and Sarth Calhoun for a special project called the Metal Machine Trio: ‘The Creation of the Universe.’ This audio installation is a modern take-off of Reed’s 1975, noisy, confusing and extremely experimental record called ‘Metal Machine Music.’
