I used to deliver furniture to Lou Reed's apartment in the early 90's. He was aloof but polite. Had a rooftop rehearsal studio containing one guitar, a mesa boogie and a chair. Pictures of him and Laurie on the walls.

Sorry Jeezy, hope most of those 96 were good ones. Saw Gary Numan last night. Good show but wish he had ended with a Lou cover,being how Mr. Reed was so seminal to that genre.

Saw Lou last year in concert and I'm sad to say it was terrible.
  Wed. 10/30/13 9:33am jan:

Junior Dad- new to these ears, but sounds great. Have you played it on your show before? I wasn't very informed about Lou's music, obviously familiar with the Velvet Underground, but in the mid 70s my idea of a clever prank was to put enough coins in the local bar's jukebox to play
"Walk on the Wild Side" playing 4 times in a row and promptly walk out.
Ken, will you play more Lou for those who don't know?

Well, anyway. I was in his house and he was nice to me. It was cool to see the austerity of his life style. Black t-shirt, jeans, wide open spaces and some photos of his wife. Props Lou! Thanks for the tip!
Avatar    Wed. 10/30/13 9:50am Ken:

Jan, I wasn't planning on playing a ton more Lou, I guess because the station's been playing SO MUCH the last four days. But I'll play a few more probably.
  Wed. 10/30/13 9:50am Cecile:

If I went to someone's house, famous or not, I'd talk about what I liked there.

- my 2cents: I don't see what crosses a boundary about saying he was aloof but polite & was austerely furnished w/ a guitar & amp - 20 years ago...seems respectful & interesting to me...but I am a Yank - might even be a particularly NYC thang (I'm not one)...

@celcile Yes, but talking with friends and publicizing are two very different things.
