The Velvet Underground teamed with the German singer/model Nico, recording their debut album - The Velvet Underground & Nico - in 1967. While the album wasn't an initial success, it's been remembered and lauded over the following decades as a prophetic inspiration for genres as disparate as punk rock and new wave.
With a line-up featuring the experimental sounds of John Cale, the lyricism of Lou Reed, the stoic guitar of Sterling Morrison, and the killer drums of Maureen Tucker, it was producer and artist Andy Warhol who added Nico to the mix. While the album is remembered fondly, it was also the end of Reed and Warhol's collaboration, with the band splitting from both Warhol and Nico soon after.
