Lou Reed at Prospect Park in 2011 (more by David Andrako)
Lou Reed

When we first announced this year's Tibet House US benefit, which is happening on February 13 at Carnegie Hall, it was surprising that a Philip Glass-curated event in NYC with Laurie Anderson wouldn't also include Lou Reed. Well, as it turns out, Lou Reed will in fact be performing at the event. As mentioned, the lineup also includes "Newcomer of the Year" James Blake, Dechen Shak-Dagsay, Rahzel, and still more to be announced. Tickets are still available.

Lou Reed sucked the moment he stopped getting bundles on Avenue B.

By far, the biggest douchebag in the history of popular music. And that's saying a lot.

You meant semi-popular music, right?

They're not saying "Booo", they're saying "Loooooou"

Lou served as artistic consultant on Al Pacino's film "Cruising"
True fact.

So, he's got a little experience in opening his throat, 3:36.

i like him. i was at a show he was at, he was next to us, and some dude was just staring at him. reed took notice, glared at him, a death-stare, but for only like half a second and for the rest of the night the guy was terrified to look in our general direction.

Lou Reed is a living legend. True dat. But damn that nigga's best days are many moons ago. Unless he wants to start getting serious about his art again, and his fans, he ain't getting a dime of my money or a minute of my mental energy.
