Well, this is a nice New Year’s present. I just now discovered that my essay about Lou Reed’s and Metallica’s Lulu has attracted the attention of the guys themselves (or at least their publicity people), who put a link to it on the Press page for the album. Yikes!
Apparently the link’s been there since November 15. However, it seems to have been broken by my recent site move. It can now be found here.
While I haven’t actually been in contact with Lou or Metallica, I’m gratified and humbled at the possibility that they might have actually read my ramblings, and that they know that, after all, some of us don’t think the album sucks.
