Lou Reed

Lewis Allan "Lou" Reed (born March 2, 1942) is an American rock musician, songwriter, and photographer. He is best known as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of The Velvet Underground, and for his solo career, which has spanned several decades. Though the Velvet Underground were a commercial failure in the late 1960s, the group has gained a considerable cult following in the years since its demise and has gone on to become one of the most widely cited and influential bands of the era. As the Velvet Underground's principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined so openly in rock and roll, including sexuality and drug culture. more »

What becomes a legend most
- When she's alone in a hotel lobby
What becomes a legend most
- Some bad champagne and some foreign bottled beer
What becomes a legend most
- When the musicians have come and then leave her
What becomes a legend most
- Besides beeing a legendary star
What becomes a legend most
- Lying in bed cold and regal
What becomes a legend most
- Lying in bed watching a talk show on TV
What becomes a legend most
- Fifty days in fifty cities
Everyone says she looks pretty
At least as pretty as a legend should

Fifty days can wear you down
Fifty cities flying by
A different man in each different hotel
And if you're not careful, word can get around

What becomes a legend most
- When she's lying in her hotel room
What becomes a legend most
- Well baby tonight it's you
