By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Sept. 2000
Wrenn presents Reed in a very interesting way-the text is interspersed by Reed's quotes and actual reproductions of articles from magazines like Creem, NME, Melody Maker, Disc, Rock News, Rock & Folk, Village Voice, Rolling Stone, NY Rocker and Q. The photographs provide fascinating insight into the chronological documentation of a man and his music: from a sweet little boy at Syracuse University in 1963, to happily married, reformed survivor in the 90s. Interesting pictures include the cover of the original trashy exposé "The Velvet Underground" by Michael Leigh, the book from which the band took their name, posters and tickets of Warhol's multi-media Exploding Plastic Inevitable show, rare records and record covers and exotic underground comics featuring Reed and the band. There's also a poignant picture of Nico and one of Warhol taken just before his death in 1986. Wrenn uses Reed's own words to present a powerful self-critiqe of the artist in all his facets-musician, writer, poet, performer. The result is a remarkable insight into a man who has pushed himself and his music to the edge but who has survived with his cutting edge sharper than ever. Like this Reed qote: "All I ever wanted to do was to make records that adults could listen to without wincing, rather than all that 'rock below the waist' stuff. There's pop music, then there's what I do. I consider myself a writer."

4.0 out of 5 stars ENJOYABLE REED READ 27 Jun. 2000
By Peter Uys - Published on Amazon.com
In this bio first published in 1993, Wrenn presents Reed in a very interesting way -- the text is interspersed by Reed's quotes and actual reproductions of articles from magazines like Creem, NME, Melody Maker, Disc, Rock News, Rock and Folk, Village Voice, Rolling Stone, NY Rocker and Q. The photographs provide fascinating insight into the chronological documentation of a man and his music: from a sweet little boy at Syracuse University in 1963 to world weary drug casualty in the 70s, to happily married, reformed survivor in the 90s. Interesting pictures include the cover of the original trashy exposé "The Velvet Underground" by Michael Leigh (the book from which the band took their name), posters and tickets of Warhol's multi-media Exploding Plastic Inevitable show, rare records and record covers and exotic underground comics featuring Reed and the band. There's also a poignant picture of Nico and one of Warhol taken just before his death in 1986. Wrenn uses Reed's own words to present a powerful self-critiqe of the artist in all his facets - musician, writer, poet, performer. The result is a remarkable insight into a man who has pushed himself and his music to the edge but who has survived with his cutting edge sharper than ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great scrapbook... 27 Aug. 2002
By H. Neill Jameson - Published on Amazon.com
In terms of having real digestable content instead of just throwing quotes around and passing for a "biography" I'd say this falls flat on it's face..but if you're looking for something that will help you gain a good visual idea of Lou Reed and his various forms then this is definitly great for that! Full of advertisements, old zine clippings and photos etc this is a great scrapbook for Lou Reed and Velvet Underground fans with a lot of rare pix and quotes I havent seen elsewhere...

2.0 out of 5 stars Another stale rock book 28 Mar. 2000
By Francis Monahan - Published on Amazon.com
For fans of Lou Reed only. For a real look at Lou get Growing Up in Public, his authorized autobiography. This book is just another stale rock review of who signed for how much with what record company.
