BANANA: AFTER 50 YEARS THE ULTIMATE WARHOL VELVET UNDERGROUND MYSTERY IS FINALLY (ALMOST) SOLVED!!

It was fifty years ago this week that the future began with the Velvet Underground, Andy Warhol, and his banana. The destruction and rebuilding of rock ‘n’ roll music as it then existed commenced. This was all taking place even though only a few people knew about it at the time. The right few, as always. I have to think that anyone reading this knows the history of the Velvet Underground so I’m not going to rehash it here.
