Andy Warhol

Today exactly 25 years ago Andy Warhol died due to complications from a routine hospital procedure.   The prophetic pop artist who defined decades by cleverly embracing celebrity, art, commerce, branding and multi media is continuing influencing popular culture to this day.  I wonder what New York would be like if he would still be alive roaming the streets with his shopping bags wearing his iconic silver wig.  Here is a homage song written by Lou Reed evoking the spirit of the man himself "I'm Waiting For The Man" by the Velvet Underground.  Enjoy!
