About the Author:

Tim Mitchell is the author of There’s Something About Jonathan: Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers.

Review:

"On all counts, a must for John Cale fans."  —Uncut

"Tim Mitchell’s biography reminds us just how singular [Cale’s] journey has been . . . Even the danger of overfamiliarity with the Velvet Underground canon can’t blunt the excitement of reading how Cale helped produce such a glorious, unprecedented pile-up of high and low art when he formed the group with Lou Reed in 1965. But arguably the most fascinating aspect of this book is Cale’s post-VU solo career."  —Wire
