The Dave Matthews Band has been forced to postpone the second and third days of the DMB Caravan festival at Governors Island in New York City after the threat of a hurricane has pushed the governor of New York to issue a state emergency. As of now, the first day of the festival will go on today as planned. New dates for the second and third days have not been confirmed.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
