John Cale

  • Broadcast
  • Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
  • The Fiery Furnaces
  • James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers)
  • Nick Franglen
  • Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance)
  • Liz Green
  • Natasha Khan
  • Mark Lanegan
  • Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse)
  • Peter Murphy (Bauhaus)

More names to be announced.

I think that it is very fitting that John Cale is involved with this as he helped Nico on her way to being an established artist. Also Peter Murphy from Bauhaus knew Nico and worked with her.

I just wish I could go but only found out and so can't afford it.

So I bought these boots instead to pay homage:

thank-you. not really the same though as watching herr cale pay tribute but dulling the pain a little anyway.
