Last week, I had the great fortune to meet singer and performance artist Laurie Anderson. She was at an art opening and I was surprised that she was not with her husband, the Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed. Laurie signed my “Big Science” CD cover and was very cool. A few moments later, much to my surprise, I saw Lou Reed walking up the street. He’s one of my personal gods and unfortunately, I’ve had many disappointing encounters with the legend. The curse was lifted that night as Lou signed my “Transformer” CD cover! I asked if he would mind taking a photo with me and he said “Yes. I would mind.” I didn’t press my luck any further and I thanked him for all the great music that has enriched my life. Thanks again Laurie and Lou. Though this experience happened last week, it has brought me daily smiles.
