Lou Reed calls Beatles “garbage”

Watch Lovably Cranky Lou Reed Call The Beatles “Garbage” In Lost Interview: Gothamist – http://goo.gl/KvUbzM
I wasn’t a Beatles fan. I was into Motown and The Stones. I felt the  Beatles were a boy pop band designed for little girls, which they were in the beginning. I wonder if there ever can be a pop band like we have now transcend into something that changes the world. I don’t know if that can happen anymore.
Lou changed the world a little too. I’m not sure it was the same kind of positive effect, in terms of lifestyle. In terms of music, his influence has definitely been positive. I don’t think he made much great music. He had his moments. He started from a different place altogether… Not just longitude and latitude. Lou wrote about where he came from. The Beatles were never real like that. John was, in a different way. George believed in a lot of what he wrote about… it was pretty spiritual music. Lou never even tried to be pretty. When he was, it was great. “Satellite of Love”  comes to mind. But Lou really revelled in his dark image. The Beatles were too clean and nice for all that.
