      slave FORD just posted the perfect example of how the limey steals from AMERICAN artist. This is Lou Reed for fuck's sake, not Chuck Berry. I will never forgive slave FORD and Keith Richards for butchering Lou's legacy such as this. Just a travesty.

        I couldn’t care less. Lou Reed is overrated. He might have been fun to party with but his music was average. He’s only “popular” because his attitude, he partied with David Bowie and did lots of coke, sucked dick, then made up shit music.

        Damn I’m starting to sound like Kristy.

          Does not matter. What matter is slave FORD's constant inability to decipher what is original, cool and what isn't. Listen to Lou speak. Only the first part of this interview where states he "plays everything from the heart" is all you need to know about Lou. Keith Richards plays from his bank account. Limey fucker.

            Actually this is the first single from a Lou Reed tribute album, which features mostly Non-Limey artists. It will be available on your favorite holiday, 4/20.

                Reed was someone critics salivated all over. Much more so than the general public, who kinda liked Wild Side and didn't give two shits about anything else he ever did.

                Best part of watching critical darlings who weren't exceptionally successful commercially age is how bitter they become the older they get. They simultaneously congratulate themselves for never being exceptionally successful commercially - because that way they can claim all the way to the grave that they never 'sold out, man!' - while lamenting the general public for not having been smart/hip enough to appreciate them, because HAD the general public been smart/hip enough to appreciate them, those critical darlings would have been more successful than they ended up being.

                People like Lou Reed spent their entire careers trying to impress the ghost of Lester Bangs.

                    Reed and Lester Bangs never got along after Lou's release of Berlin

                              Maybe because Bill Wyman was better at playing those funky assed bass lines than Daryl Jones is?

                              Here's an unreleased instrumental version from the Emotional Rescue sessions.....

                                Jones is no slouch on bass.

                                The Wiltern version just kind of plods along.
