NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 13: Musician Lou Reed attends the 'Phil Spector' premiere at the Time Warner Center on March 13, 2013 in New York City.
The last time I was at Roseland was to see Franz Ferdinand when their first album was out ... I was stood behind David Bowie and Lou Reed, who were at a little table watching them together. I remember Bowie had a little sports backpack on. I thought it was quite sweet to see they still hang out from time to time.
From their last album Loaded. Other obvious choices from Lou Reed: Waiting For The Man and Walk On The Wild Side.
Lou Reed is a hero of mine and of many of our readers, so for him to unexpectedly attend our first US event was a rare treat ... Music plays a significant role with this 50+ generation, and the aim of these events is to recapture the experience of the LP by listening to it on vinyl with friends, and in the way it was always intended. There’s no better album to launch in New York than Lou Reed's 'Transformer' and to share it with the man himself was incredibly special.More quotes »
