Lou Reed 3-26-69

At the time of this interview, Reed and his band, The Velvet Underground, had already recorded the two albums The Velvet Underground & Nico and White Light/White Heat. The internal struggles within the band surfaced, and as a result, manager Andy Warhol had been fired and Nico and John Cale had left the group. Reed’s new album, The Velvet Underground, had just been released, and he and Smith discuss the band's name, radio as opposed to film being the future of entertainment, and Reed’s newfound dislike of drugs.
