  • @iamholgerczukay I think that's definitely accurate. Cale was at the forefront of a lot of experimentation and innovation throughout the years (in fact he along with Tony Conrad deserves much more credit in the development of Drone music, which La Monte Young has basically fucked him/them out of). Reed wasn't exactly mainstream himself but there can be little argument that when Cale left the VU their penchant for weird experimentation basically stopped. That's not necessarily a bad thing though as the self-titled third album is great and it's unlikely they ever would've topped the Nico record anyway. But yeah, Cale deserves a lot more credit in general for the hand he had in the development of a lot of the more interesting genres/subgenres of music to sprout up from about 1965 on. He should be praised in the same way as, say, Brian Eno, IMO.
  • painful
  • @MisterJunior: I was being partially facetious, but realistically, Cale was the avant garde classical element to VUs music. He brought so much to the band, I just feel his influence over the band is heavily underrated, too much credit goes to Lou Reed, IMO.
