Willie joined The Velvet Underground in 1971, in place of Sterling Morrison. It turned out to be the last year of the band’s existence. Post-Velvet Underground, Willie played solo and with the Boom Boom Band — and still does to this day. At 75, he calls Gloucester home — a place he moved to as a child with his minister dad and mother, whose own piano playing must have rubbed off. His career took him all over the world as a singer, songwriter, and keyboardist playing art rock, new wave, and proto punk. He is, by all accounts, one of Boston’s original punk rockers. Born in Philadelphia in 1943 and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts, fell in love with the sounds of Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. He moved from the church piano to playing keys in The Lost– one of Boston’s most celebrated Bosstown psychedelic and garage rock and roll bands.
