Lou Reed: The guitar is the greatest instrument known to man
Lou Reed has said that his Metal Machine Music album aims to celebrate the power of the guitar.
The famously inaccessible record produced back in 1975 by Reed was full of white noise, distortion and feedback leaving many fans unhappy with the results.
But the album is now being rereleased following critical reappraisals of the work which state its importance in influencing musical genres such as heavy metal, punk and grunge.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Reed said the Metal Machine Music album should be seen as a "reflection of the glory of rock".
"You could say Metal Machine Music is dedicated to the proposition of the guitar as the single greatest instrument known to man and you don't need a vocalist or a drummer," he said.
Reed has been in England performing the album to fans this month, with shows taking place in Cambridge, Oxford and London.
The European tour is still to visit Denmark, Norway and Spain.Posted on 22 Apr 2010 11:01 to category : Instruments News
