Lou Reed's Collected Poems

Songwriter has many poems to enjoy

Fans of Velvet Underground may be excited to hear that a book of Lou Reed's poetry is being collected. The collection, written after Reed left the group, is called Do Angels Need Haircuts? Readers will be able to enjoy not just Reed's poems during this period during his late 20s, but also photos from his life from the same time.

Fans know that Reed was a prominent songwriter as well as performer and may look to find a similar style in his poetic works. Reed also had a moderately successful solo career, but most agree that had the band's influence been more prominent then instead of now they would have achieved much more success. His wife, Laurie Anderson, wrote the book's afterward.

Are you looking forward to the collection? Will you be reading it? Tell us in the chat.
