Brian Eno’s Velvet Revolution
“I was having a huge crisis at the time. Am I going to be a painter or am I somehow going to get into music. And I couldn’t play anything so music was the less obvious choice.
Then, when I heard the Velvet Underground I thought, “you can do both actually”.”
Brian Eno recalls the first time he heard the Velvet’s I’m Set Free on the John Peel Show in the late 60s (a song he’s just covered on new album ‘The Ship’).
