Chuck Wein: It was at Lester Persky’s place that Edie met Andy Warhol. It was early 1965. She was doing her dance there- a sort of balletlike rock ‘n’roll. We’d had an idea of opening up an underwater discotheque where Edie’d dance her ballet to Bach played at rock ‘n’ roll tempo. So Andy invited us down to the Factory the next day and he said, “Why don’t we do some things together?” Andy spotted her energy. Everybody else was tired and going through the trip.
