LOU REED HAS WALKED ON THE WILD SIDE

Here’s something we were surprised to learn about Lou Reed: When he was a teenager he was given what was described as “electroconvulsive therapy” in response to his homosexual behavior. Although the shock therapy affected his memory, he was able to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Syracuse University. What’s more, he pursued women after that and was married twice- most recently, in 2008, to his longtime love, performance artist Laurie Anderson.

    Janet this must be the most ridiculous and insensitive thing you have ever posted.

    If true, why is it insensitive? Rod Stewart has a long reputation for gobbing cock. Lou may be in the same mould.

    So does that mean the shock therapy actually worked? Or did he just forget he was gay after he lost his memory?

    Homosexuality is usually the result of aberrant child sexualization (i.e. child sexual abuse).

    Lou Reed (who is one of the greatest American songwriters and a terrific guitarist) has always been known to swing both ways. For years there were rumors of Reed and David Bowie, among many others. When one listens to his music, he has sung about relationships with men and women both.
    So the electroshock therapy may have worked, but only to a degree. Whatever, it certainly shaped him in one way or another.

    Does everyone forget how gay he was when he was in Velvet Underground, his many years long affair with transvestite, then transexual Rachel. Sister Ray was with him a loooooong time, thru his big return to fame with Bowie Produced recordings. He worked with David, got high with David but didnt screw him. I was more shocked to find out he was married 3 times, once very young, then Sylvia and Laurie last.
