LOU REED QUOTES

LOU REED QUOTES

How can anybody learn anything from an artwork when the piece of art only reflects the vanity of the artist and not reality?

I always believed that I have something important to say and I said it.

I always thought martial arts was the most modern choreography we could have right now, and I always wanted to put it to music.

I can concentrate on my art.

I can’t do anything I want to. I mean, I can’t have my own TV show. I can’t have my own movie. But within my little world, nobody tells me what to put on the albums.

I cleaned up my act because otherwise I would have kicked the bucket.

I don’t believe in dressing up reality. I don’t believe in using makeup to make things look smoother.

I don’t know anyone actually who does care what a critic says.

I don’t know what goes on in the crowd. I’ve had them show up and throw beer cans at me. I caused riots in most of the major cities.

I don’t like nostalgia unless it’s mine.

I don’t like overdubs, never liked them.

I don’t like the word rock opera, but I’m trying to write on that level that’s reserved for plays still, or novels.

I don’t mind a repetitive chorus; I mind repetitive verse. I mean, it’s the same amount of space. Why would you have only three diamonds if you can have six?

I don’t really think about what the subject of my next album will be. I just know that I’m going to make another album.

I don’t think anybody is anybody else’s moral compass. Maybe listening to my music is not the best idea if you live a very constricted life. Or maybe it is.

I don’t think I’m in any position to call myself a martial artist. I’m a student of the martial arts.

I love Ornette Coleman. I love Don Cherry. I love the way those guys play.

I think it’s pretentious to create art just for the sake of stroking the artists ego.

I think life is far too short to concentrate on your past. I rather look into the future.

I think that everything happens for a reason, everything happens when it’s going to happen.

In the late 70‘s I started to search for the perfect sound – whatever that might be, before that I was mainly interested in drugs, insanity and the rock’n’roll lifestyle.

Life is like Sanskrit read to a pony.

Perfect Night is minimalistic and that’s what makes it so forceful.

The most important part of my religion is to play guitar.

I think that everything happens for a reason, everything happens when it’s going to happen.

There’s only X amount of time. You can do whatever you want with that time. It’s your time.

There’s a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out.

The music is all. People should die for it. People are dying for everything else, so why not the music?

The most important part of my religion is to play guitar.

Me, I’ve concentrated on music pretty much to the exclusion of other things.”

Some even claim that I’m a terror, a dictator and they’re right.

I tried to give up drugs by drinking.

These are really terribly rough times, and we really should try to be as nice to each other as possible.

It’s depressing when you’re still around and your albums are out of print.

I don’t know anyone actually who does care what a critic says.

I don’t know what goes on in the crowd. I’ve had them show up and throw beer cans at me. I caused riots in most of the major cities.

I’m in this business for too long to be half-hearted about anything.

Me, I’ve concentrated on music pretty much to the exclusion of other things.

One chord is fine. Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.
