Lou Reed: Blue Reedo A La Talk

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 3 April 1982

LOU REED has a song on his new album about the day President Kennedy was shot. His manager looks like the kind of guy who could've organised the assassination, cleft of chin and flinty of eye as he shakes my hand and instructs: "No political questions, and no questions about Lou's private life. Other than that it's all yours!"
