Nico died 20 years ago and would be 70 this month. As mentioned in my last post John Cale organised a tribute night in London which took place at the weekend. I think it was professionally filmed so will look out for this. Apparently, Cale was also wearing go go boots as a tribute to Nico. (He so copied me!)

John Cale shares his memories of Nico and her music career on BBC Radio 4 at the weekend and this interview can be heard here 

Here is a photograph of James Dean Bradfield singing at the concert (Cale on keyboards):

Thankyou so much! What a fantastic setlist. It really makes me happy that the programme only covered Nico-penned songs and we didn't end up with 5 renditions of Femme Fatale.
I am a little disappointed that Julius Caesar wasn't included since all of the other Marble Index songs (bar Nibelungen) were, but I imagine that's a hard one - I don't think a live recording by Nico even exists!

I just love John Cale for doing this. It's a much-deserved tribute and very appropriately timed.
