THE DAY LOU REED DIED (1) -- WILD CHILD
I read an old Lou Reed interview tonight, which I liked so much, where he discussed (unpretentiously, in an impressive, impassive, advanced and sophisticated) shop-talk manner, USING VERY FEW WORDS, the salient differences between some art forms.
In his description, he emphasized the basic physicality of rock & roll, which had a decisive impact on the lyrics, the music, their internal intellection/combustion engine, and their interaction with and perception by the audience.
He made the point more simply than I would, using fewer words but saying more.
The rest is silence. Gimmie Some Good Times (please).
