    Changes

    Excerpt from an interview with Lou Reed from Open City #78, 1969

    Lou Reed: I mean, people should really support The Byrds; the Byrds are divine.

    Interviewer: But they keep changing all the time…

    Lou: So WHAT?  People are so fucked up, they say, “You changed, you didn’t stay the same”: So? Yeah, so WHAT?  It’s the Byrds.

    Interviewer: But if you liked something they did at one point and then they changed, and…

    Lou: Tough.  That’s ridiculous.  I mean, people don’t own people; YOU don’t own people.  On the one hand, you’re saying you’re in favor of evolution, and on the other hand, what if it evolved into something I don’t like.  Maybe YOU should evolve.

    Adam Lempel & The Heartbeats - “You Belong With Me”

    A really great song from earlier this year.  Since I first heard it over the summer, I haven’t been able to listen to it once without just playing it again a few more times.  The whole album is really solid, too.

    Michael Guthrie Band - “Sorry About That” - 1981

    Listened to this again for the first time in a little while and was totally energized by its greatness.  One of the best power pop songs of all time and definitely a lost classic.  Other great ones on this record, too (“Pretty Good Girl,” for instance).

    I miss this place.  Apparently, many were critical of how dark it was in there, but I really loved that aspect.  It encouraged everyone to focus on what was happening on the floor.  That strategy has definitely changed.  Occasionally, I was lucky and got to enter the arena through some sort of press/VIP entrance and it was a hallway lined with large pictures of people who had performed there.  The ones that stuck with me were Led Zeppelin and Elvis Presley.  As a kid who loved Zep, it was staggering to think that I was in the same building those guys once stood in, too.  The Elvis picture was weird to me, though, ‘cause the photo was from near the end of his life and he looked so gaudy and ill, like a spent force.
