Hailed as the founding father of alternative rock music—Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Velvet Underground legend Lou Reed is revered by fans worldwide for reshaping underground music with his own style while pushing boundaries as an opera composer, playwright, poet and photographer. Reed sits down with Bob Ezrin—the noted music producer who has helped refine the sound of artists from Alice Cooper to KISS to Pink Floyd. A rare moment in music history as these two legends share a combined 90 years of experience, giving voice to their thoughts, processes and motivations.
Presented in conjunction with the world premiere exhibition, Lou Reed, Metal Machine Trio: The Creation of the Universe—an Arup SoundLab Installation of his remastered 1975 album Metal Machine Music. The exhibition is on view from January 27, 2012 through April 15 in the Project Room at the University Art Museum, CSULB.
