Reed was a degenerate but not of that kind
>>
>>61877992
False, Lou Reed was a one-trick pony, even though his one trick resulted in two great VU albums and a few more solo albums. The best VU albums are still the Cale ones tho

Bowie had so so so so much more going for him
>>
>>61878188
I'm pretty sure Bowie did.

Bowie pretended to be bi, Lou actually was.

Im a newfag so I didn't know this. That's a shame. A damn shame. I could tell this David Bowie thing was getting a bit ridiculous though. Props to all the anons who have tried to reign it in. It will only stop when those threads stop getting those (You)s

idk bro I've always bought Reed's bisexuality more than Bowie's, but I'm certain both got their share
>>
>>61878294
Not saying TVU&N and WL/WH are all Cale, but he brought out a side of Lou that never came out that well again

Also Bowie was a better lyricist alone

Stay pleb with the most boomer of "artists" Lou Reed, who owes his entire career to a real artist , Warhol.

Honestly, Moe Tucker is cooler than Lou.

Bowie had problems with heroin and cocaine during the '70's, and was pretty honest about it afterwards. Use Google and do some reading (and check your spelling).

maybe, but they inspired all the shitty bands.

all the good music was inspired by TVU & Nico :^)

spent a while googling, because i'm actually interested in this if its true, and I've yet to discover a source.

where are you getting this from? writing a song about a "junkie" doesn't mean he necessarily did dope
>>
>>61878186
that's because Lou didn't release a really good album a couple days before he died

stupid much?

>people defening Bowie at the expense of Lou Reed

You realize Bowie would laugh at all of you right? He respected the hell out of Lou because he wasn't musically illiterate like some of you.

A number of artists have come forth in the last day to pay tribute to Lou Reed in the wake of his death. David Bowie writes on his website, simply: "He was a master" accompanied by this photo of the two of them. Morrissey was a bit more verbose, quoting his own song "Life Is a Pigsty". He writes, via True to You:

'Oh Lou / why did you leave us this way?'

No words to express the sadness at the death of Lou Reed. He had been there all of my life. He will always be pressed to my heart. Thank God for those, like Lou, who move within their own laws, otherwise imagine how dull the world would be. I knew the Lou of recent years and he was always full of good heart. His music will outlive time itself.
We are all timebound, but today, with the loss of liberating Lou, life is a pigsty.

'7 glasses used to be
called for six good mates and me
now we only call for three'

>>
>>61879276
yes
>>
>>61878837
obviously bowie was a cocaine addict. but the only comment he made about heroin was about the recording of Low:

"And I moved to Berlin to do it. I moved out of the coke centre of the world [i.e., Los Angeles, where Station to Station was recorded] into the smack centre of the world. Thankfully, I didn't have a feeling for smack, so it wasn't a threat"

maybe you should do some reading yourself eh

>not liking lou makes someone musically illiterate

o im laffin

The band is not called The Velvet Underground & Nico, that's the album
>>
>>61879164

Start here: https://www.thefix.com/content/david-bowie-drugs-warning91172

Then try this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=David+Bowie+%26+heroin
>>
>>61879331
Yeah, that's what he's talking about dipshit. Obviously the band as a whole is incredibly influential, but it's usually their first album that people mention when they discuss how influential they are.
>>
>>61879331
holy shit lmao
are you schizophrenic?
>>
>>61879368
Sister Ray was also really influential
>>
>>61879355
the only drug that first article mentions is cocaine. did you even read it?

I refer you to this post: >>61879355

>>61879355
>literally not one mention of heroin in that article
>literally not one article or interview on google concerning Bowie and heroin
is this bait, or do you seriously not read the things you post? retard
>>
>>61879392
that's very true actually. but it's still usually TVU&N that people mention as the most influential overall album. it even has that whol 'everyone who bought a copy started a band' thing

>>61879420
you're trolling right? that article is like 100 words and you can't tell that it doesn't mention heroin once?
>>
>>61879420
and again, i'd refer you to this: >>61879310
>>
>>61877992

Refer to this post, here: >>61879422
>>
>>61879316
yes that's what I'm saying

feel free to dispute it
>>
>>61879407

I suggested that you START with that one.

But I tell you what... BELIEVE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BELIEVE.

Are you enjoying the argument about Bowie vs. Reed? I've got better things to do. Peace, and have a good night, friend.

ps. Regarding heroin, if God made anything nicer, He (or She) kept it for Himself (or Herself).

>>61879530
refer back to this post here: >>61879540
>>
>>61879530
yeah, an article with absolutely no mention of heroin use is a great starting point for your argument that bowie was a user.

i think i'd better refer you to this post: >>61879539
