"I write a song called 'Heroin',

you would have thought that I murdered the Pope or something"

- Lou Reed on March 20, 1987, as told to Joe Smith

 

Lou Reed. Lou Reed.

Here we bring you a rarely heard interview

Lou recorded in 1987.

It's vintage Lou. Salty and sweet.

Earnest and cocky. Grouchy and kind of endearing.

 

Reed (and his legendary band The Velvet Underground)

were those musicians

who never got the extensive accolades or awards

-nor the riches many of their contemporaries found.

 

Yet he never seemed to waver in his search

for the perfect sound and his quest

"to elevate the rock and roll song

and take it where it hadn't been taken before."

 

Here we present some interview outtakes

that give a taste for this iconic American musician.

 

Lou Reed died of liver disease on October 27, 2013.

He was 71.

Lou Reed (born Lewis Allan Reed)    1942-2013

 

singer,

songwriter and guitarist

whose work with

the Velvet Underground

in the 1960s

had a major influence

on generations of rock musicians,

and who remained

a powerful if polarizing force

for the rest of his life
