Lou Reed Does Not Care About Dow Jones

By |

Journalists with the task of interviewing Lou Reed learned a valuable lesson today: Don't ask Reed about financial matters. The former Velvet Underground singer was discussing his new Sirius radio show New York Shuffle with New York magazine when the journalist asked Reed, perhaps jokingly, about his stock options at the satellite radio station. Reed then launched into an expletive-laden tirade (highlight: "I'm here telling you the truth about music and you want to know if I have stock in the fucking radio?") against the writer, Andrew M. Goldstein, before abruptly ending the interview.
