The Life and Music of Lou Reed

Waiting for the Man

Jeremy Reed

Focusing on Lou Reed's 'singular concern to turn rock into an intelligently literate medium of expression', this biography from Jeremy Reed (no relation) traces and critically assesses his career from 'experimenting with weaponised noise' at Syracuse University in the 1960s, through the years with The Velvet Underground, solo projects such as Transformer and Berlin, collaborations with other musicians and lyric-writing, to his final album, Lulu, recorded with Metallica in 2011. Off-mint.
