Former Times pop music critic Robert Hilburn on Lou Reed, who died today at 71:

"He was one of the boldest and most liberated rock ‘n’ roll songwriters ever. There was a real literary edge to his work. He took on subjects that were off-limits at the time. He talked about heroin and illicit sex at a time when the music industry didn’t want to hear it — critics loved him, but it took him years and years to find an audience."

Here’s Hilburn’s 1992 interview with Reed.
