The legacy of Velvet Underground

The Velvet Underground are seen for many as the most influential group of the 1960s.

The band, which emerged from the New York art subculture led by Andy Warhol, has inspired countless teenagers to wear black, write morose lyrics and play guitar very loudly.

A decade since the surviving members shared a stage together, three of them, minus Welsh founder member John Cale, have been speaking about their music and influence.

Correspondent Matthew Price went along to listen to them.
