Discovering Mr Cale.I came across this brilliant man only a few years ago. Ever since then, I've been a fan. One of the founders of the Velvet Underground, Cale has continued to use his classical training to transform, explore and create new musical paths. He is dedicated to his muse, to his art, and his creative explorations are unique, authentic and inspiring.
I do not unreservedly like everything he has done (the chicken incident was unfortunate), but I like most of his albums: each one unique and a result of genuine artistry and loyalty to his creative soul.
Cale is talented, enigmatic and kind of crazy in a good way. He's an inspiration. I have his photo in front of my piano, as a reminder of what it means to be a skilled and dedicated musician.
