Michael Heath: Encounters With Lou Reed - Atomic Books - Baltimore

In the new book, MY WEEK BEATS YOUR YEAR: ENCOUNTERS WITH LOU REED (Hat & Beard Press), MICHAEL HEATH compiles 30+ interviews spanning his solo career, from the golden era of print rock-journalism, to the first online blogs.To the majority of his fans, the apotheosis of Reed’s relationship with the press, and most prominently regarded to this day, was the series of combative tête-à-têtes between Lou and the late great music journalist Lester Bangs, published in CREEM Magazine during the 1970s.The compilation is one fan’s humble attempt to move beyond the Bangs canon, and delve deeper into the distance and intimacy, cactus and mercury, that constituted Lou’s post-Velvet Underground public media image.Heath will be presenting Lou Reed interviews and stories, with a Q&A and signing to follow.https://atomicbooks.com/products/my-week-beats-your-year-encounters-with-lou-reed
