Former Velvet Underground Members Helping With Lou Reed Documentary
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.10.2013

NME reports that BBC Four will air a documentary about Lou Reed this Sunday and it will include contributions from former Velvet Underground members Mo Tucker and Doug Yule along with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore as well as Boy George and Debbie Harry. Berlin guitarist Steve Hunter, novelist Paul Auster and photographer Mick Rock will also talk about Reed. Actress Holly Woodlawn (Trash), who is referenced in the opening line of The Velvet Underground's 'Walk on the Wild Side', will also appear.

In a statement, the BBC said: "With the help of friends, fellow musicians, critics and those who have been inspired not only by his music but also by his famously contrary approach to almost everything, the documentary looks at how Reed not only helped to shape a generation but also helped to create a truly alternative, independent rock scene, while also providing New York with its most provocative and potent soundtrack."

Reed died of liver failure on October 27 after a transplant operation in May. John Cale and Moe Tucker are the only surviving members of The Velvet Underground. Reed left his estate to his wife (Laurie Anderson) and sister, with his Manhattan penthouse and home in East Hampton, New York going to Anderson. The two married in 2008 and had no children. Anderson paid tribute to Reed at the time and said he "died while looking at the trees".
