  THE ULTIMATE MUSIC GUIDE From Uncut magazine - LOU REED …  After Lou Reed died on October 27 last year we began discussing how best we could commemorate the man and his tremendous body of work. The natural solution presented itself in the form of an Ultimate Music Guide. Accordingly, the latest instalment in our series of Ultimate Music Guides gathers together a wealth of interviews with Reed from the archives of Melody Maker, NME and Uncut, as well as brand new, in depth reviews of all Reed’s albums – from The Velvet Underground & Nico up to his final studio album, Lulu, his collaboration with Metallica. In our earliest interview – from 1972 – Richard Williams finds Reed hard at work on his solo debut in – of all places – Willesden. After that, you’ll find some hilarious and often revealing encounters with Reed. Regular readers of Uncut will enjoy re-reading Allan’s various adventures with Lou down the years – ...
