AMERICAN MASTERS

Rock and Roll Heart: Lou Reed

  • Aired: 04/29/1998
  • 00:30
  • Rating: NR
Reed was always at the forefront of American avant-garde music, beginning with creation of the Velvet Underground in 1965. Gritty and realistic, the brutal honesty in Reed’s lyrics and sound made him a cultural icon of the disenfranchised throughout the ’60s and ’70s. From punk rock to grunge, he has had an unparalleled influence on the American music scene.
