Reed's Life in the Suburbs and the Days after the VU

Postby taxine » 02 Mar 2017 12:36

The avant-garde cognoscenti already revered Lou as the amoral gutter poet of the Velvet Underground—Rimbaud with a guitar,the scowl that launched a thousand bands—but now he was coming out as, among other things, a bona fide rock star, much to his chagrin. Fifteen minutes of fame would have been enough for Lou; all that mattered to him was the music.

Some days ago just came across this smart and gorgeous article about lou's rentrée in show busisnes with his infamous band the Toots,that places in early 70' cool NYC ......hope you get fun like me,cheers !!
