Andy

Andy Warhol was born on this day in 1928. Would there have been a Velvet Underground without him? Probably not. If there'd been no VU, can you imagine how the face of music would've been drastically altered? So...thanks for being born, Andy Warhol.

“What’s great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good.” -- Andy Warhol
