On the passing of Lou Reed
One of the very foundation stones that’s held up what we believe in, or what my generation believes in, has been taken away. The thing about Lou, for me, was that it isn’t something where I look back at the older records and think ‘What an amazing body of work.’ It was about Lou’s life lived and how extraordinary that was. How challenging that was to people. How polarizing it was, and how exciting it was. It’s a huge loss.
They are also rumoured to be playing at Lollapalooza 2014 Festival (Chicago August 1st-3rd).
