Why Do You Talk? (Being a Short Conversation with Lou Reed.)

Chris Klimek

Tomorrow's Paper of Record features my "Conversations" interview with the great Lou Reed. I'll also be covering his 9:30 next week. I saw him play there in, I think, August of 1998, and it stands out in my memory as one of the ten or so most exciting concert experiences of my life. I remember that he opened with "Dorita," that short instrumental prologue to the Magic & Loss album, then went straight into "Sweet Jane" from that. The first encore number was "I'll Be Your Mirror."

And that's, um, pretty much all I remember about the setlist. But I was there with Mac and Shark, and a good time was had by all.
