Great Quotations: Lou Reed

Videos by American Songwriter

“I think this thing [Reed’s much-derided album with Metallica, Lulu] needs a champion. This is for people who are literate. This isn’t ‘I cry in my beer cos you f—-ed him and ran your truck through my bar. You can write 30 of those and move to Nashville. These words — every time I see them I get thrilled because it does it to me. It may do it to no one else, I don’t care. I can’t try any harder. I can’t do any better. And my heart was pure and my soul was pure, too. I went in there to make music with the best guys I could find. And we did.”

– Lou Reed (via The Telegraph)
