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 »

I'm cruising fast on a motorcycle down this winding country road
And I pass the gravel on the foot of the hill
Where last week I fell off
There's still some oil by the old elm tree
And a dead squirrel that I hit
But if I hadn't left, I would've struck you dead
So I took a ride instead
Bottoming out, bottoming out
I'm bottoming out, bottoming out
My doctor says she hopes I know how lucky I can be
After all, it wasn't my blood mixed in the dirt that night
And we must really examine this
And I say I need another drink
Bottoming out
I'm tearing down Route Eighty East
The sun's on my right side
I'm drunk, but my vision's good, and I think of my child bride
I aim that bike at the fat pothole beyond that underpass
Bottoming out
