|Rolling Stone have posted the final interview with Lou Reed.|
The conversation Reed shared with director Farida Khelfa was part of a photo shoot for Parrot — Reed had offered his sonic expertise to the company, adjusting the balance of the Parrot Zik headphones so they'd be better suited for rock. In the quite significant footage from that day just a month before his death at age 71, Reed appears gaunt, but his mind remains razor sharp. Explaining why he became a musician, Reed said, "You do what you love... or you get arrested." Asked if his father bought him his first guitar, Reed spat back, "My father didn't give me shit."
