LOU REED - FIRENZE, ITALY 1980 (R.I.P. 1942-2013)

October 30, 2013 – 2:07 pm

Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died on October 27, 2013 on Long Island. He was 71. Reed had a liver transplant in May, and the wikipedia reported that Reed had died from liver disease. According to the Associated Press, Reed’s literary agent said he died of a “liver-related ailment”. Andrew Wylie said the musician died at his home in Long Island, New York, on Sunday morning and had not been well “for a few months”.

With the Velvet Underground in the late ’60s, Reed fused street-level urgency with elements of European avant-garde music, marrying beauty and noise, while bringing a whole new lyrical honesty to rock & roll poetry. As a restlessly inventive solo artist, from the ’70s into the 2010s, he was chameleonic, thorny and unpredictable, challenging his fans at every turn. Glam, punk and alternative rock are all unthinkable without his revelatory example. “One chord is fine,” he once said, alluding to his bare-bones guitar style. “Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz,” Rolling Stone reported.

LOU REED
Firenze 1980 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Parco delle Cascine, Firenze (Florence), Italy; June 14, 1980. Very good TV or FM broadcast.

In 1980, Lou Reed released his 10th solo album, Growing Up In Public.

Reviewing the album in Rolling Stone, Mikal Gilmore wrote:

On its most immediate level, the new record is a polished package of bombastic rock & roll - indeed, probably Reed’s best commercial shot since his 1974 Top Ten anomaly, Sally Can’t Dance. In a way, that’s welcome news, yet it also signifies a sort of a musical retreat. On Street Hassle, Lou Reed revived the dissonant but graceful spirit of the Velvet Underground. On The Bells, he embellished this spirit with obsessed, protean saxophone and trumpet arrangements, prompting critic Lester Bangs to describe the final result as “the only true jazz-rock fusion anybody’s come up with since Miles Davis’ On the Corner period”…

Reed’s entire career - more accurately, his entire life - has been leading up to Growing Up in Public. It may or may not be his finest album, but it’s surely his hardest-fought victory: a record of the long road back from Berlin. There were foreshadowings of it in last year’s “All Through The Night” (”With a daytime of sin and a nighttime of hell/Everybody’s going to look for a bell to ring”). Now that Lou Reed has found his bell, it tolls for you and me, loud and clear, pealing a clarion call of hope that the glory of love - despite our daytimes of sin and nighttimes of hell - might see us all through yet.

  2. Thanks, bigO!.

  3. Thanks Big O.
    More Lou is welcome and somehow it seems fitting that we should share more than just the one gig to mark his passing
    Could we not make more available from your previous postings?

    Any more gigs gratefully received!

    By swappers on Oct 30, 2013

  4. there are 17 lou items on tube7 and 133 items from 1970 thru aug 2012 on sugarmeg. not including vu items. certainly no shortage for fans needing more.

  6. wow…. great sound… weird to hear coney island through a keyboard, rather than the saxophone versions before… but great to hear how heavy the guitars are
    thanks :-)

    By g on Oct 30, 2013

  7. A majorMAJOR loss… at least Lou had enough brains to not die a stupid self-inflicted death, but one related to human biological issues. So, I don’t feel tragedy or anger at his passing, more sad inevitability.

    For those like myself who feel a pang of guilt DLing free music on the event of his death, I’d like to recommend a couple of his late-period live releases which seem somewhat overlooked: “A Perfect Night in London” and “Animal Serenade”.

  11. Thank you very very much for all this LOU, Big O… it is very generous and considerate of you.

    Been listening to the LIVE GHOST you offered up between LOU REED offerings. Thank you so much again, and if you ever find any more LIVE GHOST, it would be very, very much appreciated!

    Yours in allegiance,

    THE RUSSIAN ASSASSIN

    By THE Russian Assassin on Oct 31, 2013

  12. well sadly i hate to disagree lowendbill but had he not abused his liver which is a self repairing organ til it is so badly abused it just cant handle it anymore and it just dies.. he wouldnt have needed a replacement back in may. that replacement liver is what caused his problems and his recent death. complications from that liver and the issues that arose since he received it wouldnt stop and eventually they took their toll.
    gregg allman abused his liver and got a replacement and lasted much longer since his operation. we never know what these men are doing or what diseases or conditions are striking them post surgery or what condition their bodies are in or how well they will adapt to the new liver theyre given but evidently lou didnt adapt to it as well as gregg did. gregg did get very sick afterwards and we nearly lost him last year i believe but he survived.
    however in regards to what u said about lou.. i disagree. it is self inflicted. he took his walk on the wild side.. a little too close to sister ray.

    By darth on Oct 31, 2013

    By Innocent Bystander on Oct 31, 2013

  20. Darth, since so many jokers so self-righteously disagree with your right to disagree, I don’t disagree or really even care. You’ve got your thoughts and are more than welcome to disagree with me or anyone anytime. I promise not to lose any sleep over it.
    Really, far more important to the point, when I read that Lou’s parents inflicted 24 or more sessions of convulsive electroshock therapy on him as a teen to “cure” him of homosexual tendencies… well, Lou, whatever you need you’ve earned.

    By lowendbill on Oct 31, 2013

  21. We don’t disagree with darth’s right to disagree, we disagree mainly with his mistakes, his lies, and his bullshit spin doctoring and disagreeing after he’s been proven wrong. darth should just shut the fuck up more often.

    By dr howard dr fine dr darth on Oct 31, 2013

  22. Innocent Bystander: my posts are uninformed and nobody likes them….darn!

    By Innocent Bystander on Oct 31, 2013

  23. innocent - the people who are frequenters of the tube site and the guy who runs it knows that i am not the one who is posting that crap under my name. just like when people here post under false names. first small bit of proof that it wasnt me who said that line is the capital ‘i’ in the line. i would never announce that im getting my ass beat on bigo in the first place. 2ndly i wouldnt use a capital i. and lastly why would i announce over there that such a thing is happening at all over here? what sense does that make? so yes i agree.. its very sad that there are idiots on here that have nothing better to do.

    lowendbill - while lous parents sure enough had problems with his brain and treated him terribly and did horrible things to him in the 50s in an effort to change him.. i dont think those events directly affected his liver per se. they sure would have affected his brain and nervous system in general. he was bipolar and im not sure how many ppl know this. i experienced it once or twice in the 80s and early 90s myself. but in so far as his liver goes.. it was his own doing that caused him to have problems with it. it takes time for this abuse to totally destroy the liver. it is the most incredible organ in the body. it was the 2nd liver and the complications with it and the surgery that ultimately killed him. this wouldnt have happened if not for the actions he took upon himself for whatever reason. yes he had his reasons i dont deny that. but it surely wasnt purely biological without human input or self infliction. we deal with what our parents did to us in various ways. the morons on this site deal with it by harassing strangers on websites.. lol.
    thankfully i dont lose any sleep over this shit either. i come here to find music share info sometimes learn info. i have u know. there are some who dont appreciate the info i have offered. i dont care. thats their right. but it isnt their right to do what they do. i cant stop them and apparently neither can the moderator. he has threatened to. he has begged them to stop. they wont. theyve promised to stop. theyve lied. uve seen it yourself. they put an exorbitant amount of energy into what they do. its baffling. i do think its funny tho that since i have friends like u theyve chosen to attempt to harass and mock u as well.

  25. Lou Reed may have been a brilliant songwriter whose best works (Transformer, Coney Island Baby, VU & Nico, Loaded, Rock & Roll Animal, Street Hassle, Ecstasy) brought me hours and hours of sheer pleasure but I guess that the same person was a neurotic asshole who treated others badly.

    By Tony Lauber on Oct 31, 2013

  26. ask dr darth he knows all about being a neurotic asshole. and being a compulsive liar too. and liver disease, and temporary bipolar disorder, and music, and electric guitars being acoustic, and blaming others for his mistakes, and lou reed working at k-tel, and billy joels live album with a faked audience, and whos on ellen and kelly next week, and insulting strangers on youtube, and wondering why hes insulted here when hes so wonderful.

  46. darth’s “friends” whether using the idiotic names they make up or the ones they steal (yes, I know, there are going to be a series of moronic posts using my handle following this…yawn), do succeed in showing that there’s somebody out there more pathetic than darth, himself.

  47. Uh-oh….somebody’s has their feelings hurt.Forgive my special needs bastard son.He truly is the pathetic one.

    By Innocent Bystander's Dad on Nov 1, 2013

  48. i didnt say that he was bipolar once or twice i said that i had experienced his bipolar problems once or twice. i wasnt with him that often. but of the bunch of times that i had encountered reed he was normal most of them cept on a couple of them. how could u have not understood this?

    i didnt blame anything on my keyboard. the mick taylor fiasco as u call it was a copy and paste and i linked u to the original article. i didnt make any mistakes. the info was all accurate. and i never said anything about my keyboard.

    when i chose to use caps for a few lines and not my entire posting it was for a reason. i dont type my entire postings in all caps. that would be insane and ignorant. i dont shout or yell everything i type. someone who does is stupid. if i use all caps for a few lines it is for emphasis. this is obvious to most people. i dont know why it isnt for some of u.

    the bootleg called woke up and found myself dead has long been assumed to be johnny winter with jim morrison and jimi hendrix. it isnt. rick derringer played with johnny winter and had a very similar style to him and a lot of his musicianship sounded a lot like winters. johnny had been asked about whether or not he had ever jammed with jimi at that event several times and he had said no. it never took place. rick was questioned about it and he has said yes it is him. bootlegs often have erroneous info on them and this is one such example. there are 100s if not 1000s of similar examples but this one is a huge mistake. it has never been corrected and many ppl just want to believe that it is johnny because he has such a huge name. johnny was in town that week and in fact he and rick were doing some studio work somewhere. but it was rick who happened to go to the club and join jim and jimi on stage which if anyone had ever been there wasnt much of a stage if they remember. had he sang a note u would recognize his voice but he didnt so the mystery remains for 45 or so years. no i cant prove it to u without rick or johnny contributing to this site. in one interview johnny said he had never jammed with jimi at all whatsoever. but in another he said there was at least one time that they had making ppl believe that this event could have been that one time. but i assure u that this particular bootleg isnt johnny. its rick. ive given u the info. whether or not u wish to accept it isnt my problem. it is absolute fact tho.

    not all deadheads smoke or get high.
    bipolarism isnt always inherited.
    i dont post under other names. i have told u this many many times. please try to understand this. joe did 3-4 things in his posting i would never have done. after seeing 100s if not 1000s of my postings by now u have to be able to tell that its not me. cmon now.
    btw.. thank u joe.

    i cant believe u idiots. bigo posts a few items in honor of lou reed due to his passing to help yall remember him and once again and again and again.. u turn this place into a bashing zone against me. what on earth is wrong with u people? cant u just enjoy the music and comment about it? if u have something to add to the subject without it being about me do it. but why does it have to have anything to do with me? why cant u just leave that part out of your postings? cant u just control yourselves? if u have info about the topic or other sources for music about this man or other similar music etc.. then share it. if u have views opinions or something to add about this etc.. but not about me feel free to add it. get off the subject of me!! i am not the topic here. u idiots need to find another purpose. for years now u have made this blog about me. enough is enough already. rehashing this crap isnt helping anyone and u are ruining things for everyone here. no one is finding this enjoyable and im not going anywhere. u can keep pointing blame at me.. and saying its my fault etc. etc. but it wont fix anything to do that. if u dont keep attacking and harassing me i will have nothing to respond to. it isnt my responses that are the problem because even when i dont respond u have comments to make. i have a right to post here. u do not have the right to keep harassing me for my postings. and every time u do it that starts more problems.
    u can keep saying that i started something on a particular page where nothing was said to me but i didnt. i mentioned no ones name and someone did accuse me of saying something i didnt ever say if u recall. i didnt make this up. so repeating it several times about how i attacked him fresh etc.. isnt accurate. u have to be referring to something that must have happened previously. stop playing semantics. u know exactly what youre doing. no one finds u or any of these other idiots amusing. least of all me or the moderator and the other users of this site dont either.
    this site needs people to contribute to keep it going. if u were someone who came here fresh and new and never saw this site before and found it full of this shit would u want to help the moderator out by contributing??? i know if i was able to offer money to help a site carry on and i saw this crap going on i sure as hell wouldnt want to give my hard earned money if they allowed it.
    id ask them why allow these people to continue this shit?? id look at the big picture and say sure i like the music but that horrible comment section and extreme harassment has to go. free speech is one thing but not when it affects the life liberty and pursuit of happiness of others. again i have the right to be here and post my comments. i dont initiate anything towards u people. u need to stop making offensive postings towards me. and taking your problems to other chat boxes on other blogs and posting under my name is ridiculous. stop it already.

  51. Most depressing Lou Reed news stories recently seen (paraphrasing from links, since I refuse to read or propagate them): “Lou Reed’s album sales surge after his death”

    I know it always happens, but still…
    On the other hand, perfect subject matter for a good Lou Reed song!

    By lowendbill on Nov 1, 2013

  52. I don’t find that news so depressing, lowend. Sure, it would have been better if he’d had a nice surge of appreciation while he was still alive, but, his death has reminded a lot of people of his work, and gotten them talking about it, so it’s only natural that it would cause some of them to buy some of it. Personally, I’ve had a lot of conversations about Lou Reed this week, which have included people telling me that his mid-80’s albums are better than I might think. So, now, I’m thinking maybe I should pick some of them up.

    By Innocent Bystander on Nov 1, 2013

  53. more darthisms…johnny was in town that week and in fact he and rick were doing some studio work somewhere.

    that`s funny, according to my sources Johnny was in Texas that week.
    Rick Derringer might sound like Johnny winter to the uninitiated or , a deluded rock critic[darth]but not to any real Johnny Winter fsn. No one sounds like Johnny Winter, that`s what makes the great so special. I don`t know who the 2nd guitarist is , or if there even is a 2nd guitar as I only ever listened to that particular bootleg once, and that was so long ago I can`t even recall how it sounds.That bootleg is pretty hard on the head thanks to Morrisons drunken ramblings , I know I`ll never spin it again.

    By sluggo on Nov 1, 2013

  54. I think it’s good that people are rediscovering Lou Reed’s music. Velvet Underground & Nico and Transformer are the two biggest sellers; I’d bet a lot of those sales are to people unfamiliar with his work who want to start with the most important/successful albums. I didn’t buy anything after The Bells, but some of his work after that looks very interesting.

    The big surprise for me was reading about what a nice guy Lou Reed actually was. I was under the impression that he was a nasty asshole, but it looks like he didn’t have any patience for interviews or critics, and I formed my opinion with the interviews. He didn’t seem to work well with other musicians for extended periods, and the Velvets reunion tour didn’t last long. I suppose you could blame that on artistic temperament or creative conflicts.

    By Dingus on Nov 1, 2013

  55. The big surprise for me was reading about what a nice guy Lou Reed actually was

    this would come as a surprise to a friend of mine who is quite a celebrated drummer. He was in a club sitting at a table with Lou [back in the 70`s] in New York and he noticed his foot felt like it was getting wet, looked under the table and lou was pissing on his foot.
    nice guy ! LOL
    r.i.p. Lou.

    By sluggo on Nov 1, 2013

  56. but of the bunch of times that i had encountered reed he was normal most of them cept on a couple of them. how could u have not understood this?

    yeah cmon you dummies this is a clear as mud.

    By sluggo on Nov 1, 2013

  57. Wow! Now that I think about it, the nice guy stories are after he cut back on booze and drugs in the ’80s.

    By Dingus on Nov 1, 2013

  58. its cool dingus, we`ve all felt like pissng on someones foot at times.! Just that this drummer i mentioned is one of the nicest guys ever..LOL

  59. 10 less-than-cool Lou Reed songs, as chosen by The AV Club:
    http://tinyurl.com/kuolv6w

    “The Original Wrapper” might be worse than Dee Dee Ramone/King’s rap videos. Wonder if Lou had a relapse before making this one?

    By Dingus on Nov 1, 2013

  60. I actually like one or two the songs on that list, and would have replaced them with a couple tracks from the “Rock and Roll Heart” album. Overall though, it testifies to the fact that when Lou Reed was bad, he was truly awful. Honestly, I don’t know if I can think of another artists whose best work is so amazingly good, and whose worst work is so abysmally bad.

  69. oh theyre all home too. trust me. its not like they have anything else to do.

    i was looking today for the 3rd song that steve perry did with journey at the bill graham tribute in golden gate park sf ca 11-3-91. the only reunion of sorts that he ever did with them.. 4 years after they parted ways. i have 2 songs faithfully and lights but there was a 3rd song and i had a slightly hard time finding it. i normally dont bother with perry journey recordings but i thought it would be nice to have all 3 of these. even sugarmeg had like 266mins of this event on an audience recording but with only 2 of those journey songs. youtube has 2 songs. one seemingly pro shot the other audience. they actually have another copy with both of them together thats nearly 10mins but again missing the song i was looking for. the entire thing was fm’d when it happened. i remember the event.

    has anyone gotten the rides cd? im missing the 3 bonus tracks.

  70. Innocent By… (which is hard to be around here, ain’t it?)… agreed, I just object to equating his death with the news of the loss being somehow redeemed by the “It’s OK, he’s $elling lot$ more unitS now” rationale. Hendrix said: “Nothing makes you like death”
    But yes, I realize it is a way to say good-bye for long-term listeners and a slap in the head to those who never got around to listening in the first place. If more people do actually LISTEN to “Magic & Loss” or “New York” or “Songs for Drella” they might be better people and realize what has left us.
    Or maybe I’m just dreeeeeammmminnnn…

  85. One chord is fine,” he once said, alluding to his bare-bones guitar style. “Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz,” Rolling Stone reported.

    I take it he never tried to play any steely dan tunes.
