Nice lid, Lou.

Good ol' Lou Reed. He was at Syracuse Univ. in the early sixties. His band was called LA & The Eldoradoes and played several of our fraternity parties. Later, of course, I saw The Exploding Plastic Inevitable - The Velvet Underground & Nico, with Gerard Malanga and Mary Woronov dancing onstage, with the Cassen-Stern light show projected over Warhol films - at The Balloon Farm on St. Mark's Place. I feel old!

Only in the 1970s would someone as cool as Lou Reed where a hat like that.

I saw Mary Woronov in Century City a year or two ago. Going to see her lawyer, I guessed.

From the looks of it, Andy can't bear to look at Lou's hat. I guess he couldn't convince him that the silver wig was a much cooler (and timeless) lid to wear.

Clive is probably saying, "hey Lou, it's you and this young guy Manilow I want to sign to my new Arista label. Would you mind doing a duet with him? We could call you The New Yorkers. I think that song of yours called 'Perfect Day' would be just right; Barry's good with the ballads."

In the immortal words of Daffy Duck, "Pee-YEW, what a ri-DIC-ulous *chapeau*"

Thanks for this.

Lou is invoking the Element of Water with his hand over the glass while the Magus Davis observes carefully. Looking at Warhol's waistline we observe machinery indicating that this is a robot stand-in for Mr. Warhola - not that anyone could tell the difference.
