The Velvet Underground replaced Lou Reed with Val Doonican in the early 70s – a whole new direction for them which, sadly, soon to lead to the demise of the band that had come to represent the complete anarchic anti-music antithesis to the summer of love and to middle-of-the-road cartoon Irish folk music. The Velvet Doonicans (Arnie Cottrell, Graham Bushell and Rick Foot) came to the rescue, however, picked up the torch and ran in the opposite direction. Wherever that is! The rest is history.
