John Cale: directing a Nico Tribute in London


John Cale will be directing a Nico tribute in London. James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers has been invited to perform:

I’ve been invited by John Cale to play at a Nico tribute that he’s doing at the Royal Festival Hall. I think in October she would have been 70 years old this year. John Cale is directing it, he’s trying to get loads of people involved. I’m choosing a song off “The Marble Index” which is just a fucking brilliant album. So I’ve got that to look forward to.

Cale wrote the music for a ballet for Nico in 1997.
