Acclaimed by Lou Reed himself, Waiting For The Man is the fully updated and revised edition of Jeremy Reed's part-biography, part-musical review of one of the most legendary figures in alternative music.

The mystery and enigma that is Lou Reed, founder of 'The Velvet Underground' and acclaimed solo artist in his own right, has been the subject of intense interest and fascination since he burst onto the New York art rock scene in the 1960s. For fans of the illustrious poet and songwriter, this book is as comprehensive as possible in its exploration of the life, the career and the art of the pop culture icon.

Jeremy Reed (no relation to his subject) is a poet himself, so takes an originally insightful perspective into not just the biography, but the music and lyrics of Lou Reed. The influence of the songwriter on contemporary rock music is incomparable, therefore this book is perfect not just for the fan of 1960s underground rock and proto-punk, but for any fan of rock music since its inception.

With his authoritative voice, uniquely poetic lyrics and groundbreaking creative impulse, the late Lou Reed deserves his legendary status. Waiting For The Man is the only biography and critical assessment of the man's life and music that can do justice to the pioneer of punk.
