I only like a few choice Lou Reed tracks. But even if every single one sounded like a train wreck in hell, I would still be immeasurably indebted to him.
I do love the Beatles. But “the future is to change and to change you gotta destroy”. (Lou didn’t say those exact words, but he played every one, and he played them f&&king loud.)
