John Cale, 1983

John Cale was a founding member of the Velvet Underground, then went on to have a prolific solo career and to produce the debut albums for Patti Smith, Squeeze, and the Stooges.

This Thursday, Sept 30, he's playing one of his most acclaimed solo albums -- Paris 1919 -- in its entirety, with the backing of the UCLA Philharmonia. Off-Ramp's Kevin Ferguson talked with Cale between rehearsals.
