Joe and Lou

One of my faves among the mid-career rockers, Joseph Arthur, a close friend of Lou Reed, coming out with a 12-song tribute album.  Here's his "Walk on the Wild Side." 

From the liner notes: "It's odd dancing around death, odder still if the death you are dancing around is that of a legend.  You just never know what's appropriate and what's not, what to share and what to keep inside. There is no blueprint. I loved Lou and we were friends. The last thing I would want to do is turn his life into an opportunity, but at the same time, what better way to honor the man and his music than to celebrate it and sing it and record it?"
