John Cale, who's had a long and varied career since he co-founded the Velvet Underground, is one of my music heroes. In the early punk days Cale was the ONLY established musician who took any interest in what young people were doing. The rest were all working on their coke habits, their herpes infections and their cover shoots for Rolling Stone. Cale made a point of being accessible and available to new music and new musicians and he's still going strong at 74. Recently I found this clip of him performing his Paris 1919 album with a full orchestra in Sweden and I'm sharing it because (a) this song kicks ass and because (b) I've never seen so many musicians having such a good time. Watch the drummer!
