Synopsis: A tremendously insightful biography of the man who helmed the Velvet Underground and single-handedly created alternative rock
This book covers not only the highlights of Reed?s career, but explores lesser-known facets of his work, such as his first recordings with doo-wop group the Jades, his key literary influences, the impact of Judaism upon his work, and his engagement with the LGBT movement. Drawing from original interviews with many of his artistic collaborators, friends, and romantic partners, as well as from archival material, concert footage, and unreleased bootlegs of live performances, Dirty Blvd. exposes the man behind the myth, the notoriously uncompromising rock poet who wrote songs that transcended their genre and established himself as one of the most influential and enigmatic American artists of the past half century.
About the Author: Aidan Levy has written for the the Daily Forward, JazzTimes, the New York Times , and the Village Voice, among others. He plays baritone saxophone and clarinet in a professional swing-era big band. He lives in New York City.
