Speaking of Lou Reed, I wonder if he was checking out his good friends Metallica at Yankee Stadium last night.

Yes, Lou was spotted watching the Metallica show last night, from the luxury suites upstairs.

^ Haha, nice. Maybe Metallica should've had Lou Reed come up on stage to play some of their new material (for the first time live!), just for a goof.

Lou Reed was also spotted getting angry as someone who tried cutting him in line at Mamouns. He was real codgy and apparently wagging his finger.

$30 is still too f'n much for this dribble

1:57, respect your elders. A lot of your crappy hipster music wouldn't exist if it weren't for Lou.
