Hello…you’re my very special one. Happy birthday, Moe Tucker!

We all know her as the drummer, and for three songs, vocalist, for the Velvet Underground, but let’s not forget her awesome solo work. I saw Moe with Half Japanese as her backing band, open for Lou Reed, on their Life In Exile After Abdication, and New York tours, respectively, and she blew the lackluster Lou, outta the water. I’m not the only Velvet’s fan to feel that way about that tour, either.

Dig this 1974 version of, I’m Sticking With You, with Jonathan Richman and Willie Alexander!

Her take on Pale Blue Eyes, with Lou on guitar

and why not, to this?
