Three members of experimental sixties rock group The Velvet Underground gathered for a rare reunion on Tuesday at the New York Public Library.

Frontman and guitarist Lou Reed spoke about pop art icon Andy Warhol.

"Warhol was one of the greatest people I've ever met in my life, and without him, it's kind of inconceivable, where it would have gone, because he was like the big protector."
