Heard an interview with the guy that really put me off. The 'lil Aussie chick asking the questions wasn't too bright or very well prepared but she was at least well meaning. Lou was being catty as hell with her all the way through and wouldn't cut her an ounce of slack. He got really nasty, and fast. Went after her with insults professional and personal, and the more she apologized for whatever he was unhappy about the more he attacked.
Also described himself as a legend, how dare she ask questions that she should have researched answers for instead and waste his time, refused to answer the most harmless questions once he has terrified her into total retreat, etc. He was an impossible little bitch.
If someone points him out to me on the street I'm gonna throw a soup can at his head.
Lou's always been an asshole. Love his VU stuff; his solo stuff is hit-and-miss. How Laurie Anderson stands him, I have no idea.
/ha! just got the soup can reference.
