Dangerous Minds | It’s Lou Reed’s birthday so check out this amazing live performance from 1973

Lou Reed is 71 years old today. The guy went through hell as a kid and pushed himself to the edge as an adult and he fucking survived, proving that sometimes rock ‘n’ roll will ace electro-shock and heroin.

In this exceptionally cool video, Lou, looking like a stoned extra from Les Enfants du Paradis, rocks out as he nods out at the Olympia Theater in Paris, Sept. 17, 1973.

“Walk On The Wild Side”
” Heroin”
“White Light/White Heat”
