March 2nd, 2021 | by admin

The complete interview with filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, for his excellent 1998 American Masters film “Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart”.

This complete version of the interview adds a further eight minutes to the existing online version.

Bowie is as erudite, culturally nuanced and witty as ever and he looks great, in this highly enjoyable interview. He talks at length about Lou Reed and the crucial influence the Velvet Underground had on his early musical development. The interview commences with mention of Bowie’s 50th birthday concert, earlier that year at New York’s Madison Square Garden, in which Lou joined Bowie on stage. When Lou took the stage that night, Bowie introduced him as the “King of New York himself, Mr. Lou Reed”.
