Lou says

The soul of Velvet Underground stares into the Twilight

"I never thought I would be the one to step in front of a mic," Reed says with all the backwards-glancing wisdom of a man who crashed his car then stood unscathed to stare at the wreckage. "I never thought I would get this far. It had never been a career plan or anything like that. I loved writing, and now I value it. I'm pleased I have this talent that doesn't desert me. I'm pleased I've learned to frame things in a better way to give it room to express itself, but before, there was much less thought involved. It was more of a hit or miss thing. I've come to appreciate things more and be eternally grateful for it. To me, it's like breathing. I don't really have to think about it, lucky for me. Some days, I was surprised I could walk."

He laughs, obviously.
"I'm missing huge blocks of time. I'm pretty surprised by a lot of things, to tell you the truth. From my point of view, I woke up one day and found out I was Lou Reed and thought, 'What is all this? How has this happened?'"

Lou Reed performs March 14 at the Bronco Bowl. Luna opens.
