A Walk On The Wild Side Of Lou Reed

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 9 June 1973

"I HAVE ALWAYS thought it would be kinda fun to introduce people to characters they maybe hadn't met before, or hadn't wanted to meet, y'know. The kind of people you sometimes see at parties but don't dare approach. That's one of the motivations for me writing all those songs in the first place."
