Lou Reed & John Cale

John Cale pays tribute to Lou Reed one year after his death

Lou Reed and John CaleJohn Cale has paid tribute to his former partner in The Velvet Underground sharing a video with a new version of If You Were Still Around, from his album Music for a New Society of 1982. We can watch archive footage of Lou Reed and a quite emotional Cale on the video.

Cale also shared this note along with the video:

“A Moth and a Candle met. They decided to become friends. Everyone enjoyed watching their discourse – especially the risk takers. Then one day a big rain came. The Moth couldn’t fly and the Candle puttered out. Everyone laughed in bitter awe and blamed the rain. Most however knew the deeper truth – the Candle remains lit and the Moth will stay close”.
