“Andy Warhol’s Dead But I’m Not”

Andy Warhol, born 6 August 1928, would have been 90 years old today.


I thought about posting some of Warhol’s prints, since his popularization of Pop Art changed the way people have thought about art ever since…

…and I considered posting a couple of songs from the Warhol-produced “Velvet Underground & Nico” album, one of the greatest and most influential recordings in modern history…

Note the $2 admission charge ($1 with student ID) for this performance at the University of Denver Student Union.

…and how could I overlook Warhol’s long reign as celebrity-in-chief during the sex-and-drugs-drenched Golden Age of Studio 54?


But in the end, I decided that this song from the 80s was a fine tribute to one of the 20th century’s great innovators.
