Full description of the book "Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side : The Stories Behind the Classic Songs":Art-rocker, iconoclast, contrary noise merchant and junkie, Lou Reed has always been fascinating. Few people, if any, will love his entire body of work: Reed's oeuvre is at times perverse and wilfully unlistenable, while at others he proves himself a master of melody and the songwriter's craft. However, it is impossible to deny his standing as a colossus of the rock world: it's a tribute to Reed's standing that even punk rockers, with their scorched earth policy towards all pre-punk music, had a healthy respect and regard for Reed. Velvet Underground are one of PDF the all-time greats, of course, yet in many people's eyes, Reed has produced his best work solo, since the demise of that band. Despite this, no book has to date attempted to analyse and celebrate the fierce intelligence and literary merits of Lou Reed's post-Velvet Underground music. This is that book.
