Sterling Morrison, 1942-1995
Bill Bentley, Musician, December 1995
STERLING MORRISON was one of the prime architects of modern rock 'n' roll, and very few people know it. As guitarist — with Lou Reed — in the Velvet Underground, he helped shape entire genres of music and influence countless musicians long after that band dissolved. But working with Reed, John Cale and Moe Tucker, Sterling usually stayed in the shadows.
