Letting Wagner & Hunter open Sweet Jane on Rock and Roll Animal was amazing. He wasn't so insecure to let others shine like that and produce amazing music.
Just sad. An original, an iconoclast, his talent seemed to never satisfy him as if he had to keep running so no one could view his insecurity. The swagger of a young man, something else as an older man. RIP
Selfishly, I feel older and profoundly sad. It seems that the originators are all going, some too soon. Who will remember all the nuance once we're gone?
Lou is a big one for me. I spent a lot of time in my formative years listening to Lou Reed. A remarkable artist, even when he was swinging and missing.
Alex, do you know his song "Doing the Things That We Want To?" It's all about Scorsese and Sam Shepard.
