Lou Reed – Rock And Roll Heart – amazing documentary 1998 (75 mins)

Rock And Roll Heart traces Lou Reed’s career from before the formation of the Velvet Underground to rock icon status to his more recent artistic endeavors. Includes rare and vintage footage plus interviews with David Bowie, John Cale, Maureen Tucker, Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, David Byrne, Jim Carroll, Dave Stewart and Philip Glass – and even Holly Woodlawn and ‘Little’ Joe Dallesandro, the drag queen and the street hustler immortalized by Reed in ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. A superb documentary – and the only one – about this hugely influential and uncompromising American artist. Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders for American Masters.

God bless you, Lou. And Nico and Sterling Morrison and Andy Warhol, with love & gratitude x
