Library Rock's Backpages

Lou Reed

Paul Zollo, Performing Songwriter, 2000

"Music was what bothered me, what interested me. I always believed that I have something important to say and I said it. That's why I survived, because I still believe I've got something to say. My God is rock and roll. It's an obscure power that can change your life."
