Pass Thru Fire by Lou Reed

Book Description

Containing a body of work that spans more than three decades, Pass Thru Fire is a stunning collection of the lyrics of an American original. Through his many incarnations-from proto punk to glam rocker to elder statesman of the avant garde-Lou Reed's work has maintained an undeniable vividness and raw beauty, fueled by precise character studies and rendered with an admirable shot of moral ambiguity. Beginning with his formative days in the Velvet Underground and continuing through his remarkable solo career-albums like Transformer, Berlin, New York, Magic and Loss, and Ecstasy-Pass Thru Fire is crucial to an appreciation of Lou Reed, not only as a consummate underground musician, but as one of the truly significant poets of our time.

Books By Author Lou Reed

Raven by Lou Reed Raven, Paperback (September 2012)

An Edgar Allan Poe and Lou Reed mash-up, illustrated with paintings by Mattotti: now in paperback.

Berlin by Lou Reed Berlin, Hardback (July 2009)

Lou Reed's third solo album was 'Berlin', a concept album that represented a brave departure from the familiar sounds and themes of his previous work. In 2007 Reed toured the album and it was filmed by Julian Schnabel. This text draws on stills from the film, photographs of the set design, printed lyrics of Reed's original verse and more.
