Those Great, Silver Aviators
"That's from a section about wearing glasses and what it does to people's dynamic and personality. Sunglasses and glasses have become a big part of music and fashion. You've got guys like Elton John in that chapter and people like Patti Smith and Elvis Costello. But one standout is Lou Reed with those great, silver aviators. You can see that influence throughout other generations as well in rock and roll with the silver-mirrored lenses. At that point in time, people weren't really wearing aviators for fashion. But Lou Reed did, and you wondered what was behind those lenses. What was he thinking? What was he looking at? There's that kind of aura and that mystery behind those mirrored aviators."
