14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lou Reed, who died in 2013, was best known to the general public as the grumpy New Yorker in black who sang 'Walk on the Wild Side'. To his dedicated admirers, however, he was one of the most innovative and intelligent American songwriters of modern times, a natural outsider who lived a tumultuous and tortured life. In this in-depth, meticulously researched and very entertaining biography, respected biographer Howard Sounes examines the life and work of this fascinating man, from birth to death, including his time as the leader of The Velvet Underground - one of the most important bands in rock'n'roll. Written with a deep knowledge and understanding of the music, Sounes also sheds entirely new light on the artist's creative process, his mental health problems, his bisexuality, his three marriages, and his addictions to drugs and alcohol. In the course of his research, Sounes has interviewed over 140 people from every part of Lou Reed's life - some of whom have not spoken publicly about him before - including music industry figures, band members, fellow celebrities, family members, former wives and lovers.This book brings Lou Reed and his world alive

9 editions published between 1995 and 2019 in English and Japanese and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester ... This was the bland semi-detached home of Fred and Rose West, and the guardian of their incredible secret: the remains of nine young women--many of them dismembered, decapitated, and showing evidence of sexual torture--were buried under its cellar, bathroom floor, and garden. the remains of Fred's eight-year-old stepdaughter were under the extension of a nearby house; his first wife and nanny were buried in windswept fields some miles away. There are undoubtedly many other victims whose fates may never be known. Yet Fred and Rose West, who committed at least nine of these murders together, continued to preserve the façade of a normal married life. Friends and neighbours considered them a loving if somewhat eccentric couple, and their crimes went undetected for over twenty years."--Back cover

"In this, the first ever critical biography of Bukowski, author Howard Sounes has drawn on years of exhaustive research - including new interviews with virtually all of Bukowski's friends, his family, his many lovers, as well as unprecedented access to his private letters and unpublished writing - to reveal the extraordinary true story of the Dirty Old Man of American literature." "The biography is illustrated with over fifty never before published personal photographs, and features unique contributions from friends of Bukowski's, such as Mickey Rourke and Harry Dean Stanton, as well as some of the biggest names of American literature, including Norman Mailer and Allen Ginsberg."--Jacket

The life of Lou Reed : Notes from the Velvet Underground by Howard Sounes( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As band leader of the Velvet Underground and later a successful solo artist, Reed was much more than what the general public came to know as the grumpy New Yorker in black who sang “Walk on the Wild Side.” To his dedicated admirers, he was one of the most innovative and intelligent songwriters of modern times—a natural outsider who lived a tumultuous and tortured life. In the course of his deep research into Reed’s life, from a humble upbringing on Long Island to death from liver disease in 2013, Howard Sounes interviewed more than 140 people who knew the artist intimately—some of whom have not spoken publicly about him before. With new revelations from former wives and lovers, family members, fellow band members and celebrities, and music industry figures, this book offers an updated, unfettered look at Reed’s creative process, his mental health problems, his bisexuality, his three marriages, and his addictions to drugs and alcohol. Featuring previously unpublished photographs of some of Reed’s most private moments, this is the definitive account of one of rock ’n’ roll’s most complicated and brilliant prophets
