|Ishmael In Action||
In 1996, The Velvet Underground joined such luminaries as Pink Floyd and David Bowie in being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With classics such as "Sweet Jane" and "Walk on the Wild Side", their place in the history of rock is secure and they continue to influence countless modern rock bands. A major reason for that success was guitarist Doug Yule.
