Lou Reed Will Be Inducted Into Rock Hall of Fame- In the Studio pt 1


Lou Reed was one of the most formative interviews in my career precisely because his brutal honesty made it so challenging. I could not help but notice that, in his role as host/inteviewer on the cable television series Spectacle, Elvis Costello was literally star-struck when interviewing Lou Reed, who along with John Cale co-founded the Velvet Underground. As a songwriter Costello knows all too well that, without Lou Reed, there would have been no Glam Rock, no Punk Rock, no New Wave, no Alternative Rock, no future for the Sex PistolsJohnny Rotten even to  sing “No future…”. Here is part one of three of my interview with Lou. -Redbeard
