John Cale: "ode" a Lou Reed


Ad un anno esatto dalla scomparsa di Lou Reed il suo compagno di sempre John Cale ritorna con una vera e propria ode all’indimenticato amico. ‘If You Were Still Around’ viene così raccontata dallo stesso Cale: “A Moth and a Candle met. They decided to become friends. Everyone enjoyed watching their discourse – especially the risk takers.  Then one day a big rain came. The Moth couldn’t fly and the Candle puttered out. Everyone laughed in bitter awe and blamed the rain. Most however knew the deeper truth – the Candle remains lit and the Moth will stay close”. Il regista del video Abigail Portner: “#therealjohncale …thinking of Lou.”
