Lou Reed Phone Interview (October 2006)

Lou Reed passed away October 27, 2013 at the age of 71. When I got to the office Monday morning, I remembered that Synthesis had done a quick chat with Lou Reed a few years ago. I found the audio file eerily (or not eerily) dated October 27, 2006. Deliciously uncomfortable at times, Maurice Spencer Teilmann interviews (and sorta gets his ass handed to him)
Enjoy. – Dain

{Below, the original podcast intro text from 2006 by Spencer Teilmann}
Lou Reed is a pop culture and musical icon. His contributions – be they from The Velvet Underground, under the shadow of Any Warhol’s Factory in the ’60s NYC pop-art scene; or his work as a solo artist, penning the musical zeitgeist “Walk On The Wild Side,” and albums that alternately delighted and confounded both fans and critics (see 1975’s Metal Machine Music) – have left an indelible mark on rock ‘n’ roll, underground or otherwise. He also happens to be something of a jerk. Exclusive from Synthesis Magazine.

    I remember this. I remember how much Lou’s attitude changed once the interviewer mentioned he wrote music himself.
