Maureen “Mo” Tucker

January 23, 2007

Mo Tucker was the second drummer for the Velvet Underground.  She drummed with a sparse, minimal style that turned into the backbone for the wild improvisation of the rest of the band.  Mo was self-taught.  In the 80s Mo Tucker worked for Wal-Mart.  Mo has played with Jad Fair, and she still drums in the music scene around Georgia.  According to her site, she is now a grandmother.
