Good Ol’ Cantankerous Lou

Lou Reed was never known as an easy interview and was also never known to sugar coat anything. Both of these traits are beautifully on display in this clip from 1987.

In this "Blank on Blank" piece, Reed tells us how he would threaten trespassing college punks with his shotgun, why his music was SO MUCH better than everything else, including the "painfully stupid" Doors and "garbage" Beatles, and how, despite the earth shattering volume of his tunes, he still only had "average high end hearing loss for a New Yorker."
