Their first meeting at The Factory in New York did not start well. For one, Andy hated David’s song about him, being extremely self-conscious about the awkward appearance that David referenced in it (”Andy Warhol looks a fright”). David meant the song as a tribute, but to Andy, it felt mocking. Oops. So how did they get through this to become friends? 

“It was my shoes that got him,” David said in 2003, shoes which had been given to him by Marc Bolan. “That’s where we found something to talk about. They were these little yellow things with a strap across them, like girls’ shoes. He absolutely adored them. Then I found out that he used to do a lot of shoe designing when he was younger. He had a bit of a shoe fetishism. That kind of broke the ice.”
