“…and that was the one thing Andy was good for – getting his name in the papers.”- Paul Morrissey,
Paul Morrissey once said about Andy Warhol and Rock n Roll, “Andy didn`t want to get into rock and roll; I wanted to get into rock and roll to make money. Andy didn`t want to do it, he never would have thought of it. Even after I thought of it, I had to bludgeon him into doing it. My idea was that there could be a lot of money managing a rock and roll group that got it`s name in the papers, and that was the one thing Andy was good for – getting his name in the papers.”
While Warhol did not directly involve himself in the Rock n Roll genre, he was very good friends with many Rock n Roll musicians from his era. He famously designed the album cover for The Velvet Underground’s album The Velvet Underground & Nico.
