Artists selected by a jury are from five counties- Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, and Sarasota. The exhibitions are an excellent sampling of the work being made in the Tampa Bay area.

John Cale- Fear is A Man’s Best Friend

This song is from John Cale’s fourth studio album, Fear, from 1974. The Welsh artist was a founding member of The Velvet Underground before leaving and going solo. He also works as a producer and helped create the debut albums for artists including The Stooges and Patti Smith.

Below is a live version where you can see how animated he is as a performer. This version of the song also includes the addition of a bit of Chopin.
