      Episode 5
      Andy Warhol was one of the stars of the 2009 Vh1 Rock Docs special, The Lords of the Revolution. During the period between 1964 and 1968, Warhol made a name for himself thanks to the social scene he offered his associates. This environment provided his group of guests the chance for collection experimentations. Such guests included a variety of individuals involved with art, cinema, fashion, photography and writing. The one thing each of Warhol's associations had in common was that they were part of the raging drug culture. It was during this time that Warhol made some of the greatest breakthroughs in his work and films, which were later classified as revolutionary.moreless
