NYC Today: Lou Reed Wants His Own Street
UK rag the Daily Star is reporting that Lou Reed wants a New York City street to bear his name. Given the tabloid's track record, one pauses before rushing over to the East Village to gather signatures for a petition. On the other hand, considering Reed's notoriously expansive ego, you just know he grinds his teeth every time his Escalade rolls past Joey Ramone Place. The 66-year-old musician reportedly told the Star, "Lou Reed Way would be nice. Any little street would do." The modesty sounds a little unlike Lou, so we can't wait for the first local reporter to incur his wrath with a follow-up. But given his New York roots, if Lou wants a street, Lou should have a street!
