>>61603061 Yeah. I've been listening to them for about 15 years. I always used to say,'This usually clears a room' right before putting on SIster Ray at a party or whatever.
I have a question. A friend of mine is str8 edge as fuck, tea-totaler. But he loves Lou. How do those of you out there like him get into songs like WL/WH which is about speedballing? Do you just look past those songs, or do you feel sorry for the artist?
>>61603209 Ah, I think I know what you're saying. I think Lou Reed does a good job at showing the downside of drug-use. The songs don't exactly tell a heroic story. The drug-usage in VU's songs usually dissolve into absolute degenerative chaos. I don't like being whipped and gagged, but Venus in Furs is one of their best songs, one of the reasons being that it offers me a glimpse into a world I wouldn't know otherwise. Maybe your friend sees that when it comes to using.
