Original members of The Velvet Underground - frontman Lou Reed, bassist Doug Yule and drummer Maureen Tucker - will be reuniting, but for a discussion at the New York Public Library on December 8th to talk with journalist David Fricke about the band's legacy and impact on rock music's evolution.
While no performances are planned, the conference follows the publication of the band's book, The Velvet Underground: New York Art which features Reed's handwritten music and lyrics, rare photographs, poster and cover designs by manager Andy Warhol, as well as reviews, handbills and various press clippings.
