Sterling Morrison

Of the five members of the Velvet Underground who made the group's first album, guitarist Sterling Morrison is the only one who never made solo recordings under his or her own name. He also had a less distinct public image than the other four members (Lou Reed, John Cale, Nico, and Maureen Tucker). He was an important part of the band's sound, however, as a more conventional counterpart to the more experimental playing of the group's other guitarist, Lou Reed.
