As much as I love The Velvet Underground, and as much as I love all of the fabulous stories that bloomed because of Andy Warhol...the dude was a no-talent idiot. C'mon. He was. Psh, Valerie fuckin' Solanas knew it. Read my memoir!

Andy Warhol was a completely successful blood sucking vampire, whether he had talent or not isn't the point. Talent doesn't always equal success, fame, and fortune. Isn't that obvious? Having the abibilty to capitalize on an idea at the right time, to steal things from others and make them your own, to stamp your name on others work and profit from it...there a kind of genius at work there too.

"a completely successful blood sucking vampire"

Amen to that.

A similar thing happened to my buddy Scott Ewalt.

"*Scott Ewalt's neon "Cock" (1998) (edition of 3) was recently (somewhat shamelessly) "appropriated" by artist Terence Koh. The intellectually purloined white version is currently in the Saatchi Gallery."

At the same time, Scott's original red version was in the Deitch!
