Tribute to Lou Reed

In the past week since his passing, I’ve had some time to reflect on the time I was Lou Reed’s manager. I still get a chuckle at Lou’s month+ long internal debate on the Concorde vs. Air France First Class (speed vs comfort), his fanatical obsession with audio quality, importance of hotel gyms, and how smitten he was with Laurie Anderson. I won’t easily forget an Andy Warhol story I got through Lou (size of a review is more impt than what it says), or a water pipe exploding in his room in Paris in the middle of the night. Among the things I learned from Lou: Barolo (& Barbaresco).Image
