Maureen Tucker: "Quiet, Mommy's Recording"

Byron Coley, New York Rocker, July 1980

I GUESS THERE must be people out there who aren't aware of who Mo Tucker is. If you're one of them, listen up: MAUREEN TUCKER WAS THE DRUMMER FOR THE VELVET UNDERGROUND! SHE WAS A GREAT DRUMMER! SHE PLAYED IN THE BAND LONGER THAN ANYBODY ELSE! WHEN SHE STOPPED PLAYING THE V.U. WERE NO MORE! Got that? Good.
