9780857522672: Notes from the Velvet Underground: The Life of Lou Reed

Lou Reed was best known to the general public as the grumpy New Yorker in black who sang "Walk on the Wild Side." To his dedicated admirers, however, he was one of the most innovative and intelligent songwriters of modern times, a natural outsider who lived a tumultuous and tortured life. In this in-depth, meticulously researched and very entertaining biography, Howard Sounes examines the life and work of this fascinating man, including his time as the leader of The Velvet Underground, one of the most important bands in rock'n'roll. Written with a deep knowledge and understanding of the music, the book also sheds new light on the artist's creative process, his mental health problems, his bisexuality, his three marriages, and his addictions to drugs and alcohol. In the course of his research, Sounes interviewed over 140 people from every part of Reed's life some of whom have not spoken publicly about him before including music industry figures, band members, fellow celebrities, family members, former wives and lovers.

About the Author:

Howard Sounes is the author of Down the Highway and Fab.

Language Notes:

Best known for his sinuous pop hit 'Walk on the Wild Side', Lou Reed was one of the most original and innovative songwriters of the rock era - a sardonic chronicler of underground culture and the dark side of human nature.
In the first major study of the artist since his death in 2013, biographer Howard Sounes shows how Reed's seminal work with the Velvet Underground in the 1960s shaped his career and reveals a talented but tortured man: a bisexual who married three times, an alcoholic and a drug user who struggled with mental health issues, was frequently quarrelsome and could be nasty but was nevertheless capable of writing beautiful songs.
Howard Sounes is known for writing detailed and revelatory biographies of a range of extraordinary personalities, including the murderers Fred and Rosemary West (Fred & Rose), the writer Charles Bukowski (Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life) and the musicians Bob Dylan (Down the Highway) and Paul McCartney (Fab).
