1968: LOU REED AND BILLY NAME HAVE SEX.
Billy Name: “My favorite remembrance of Lou was at the second Factory. Lou came and everything and was getting ready to go and I said, ‘Wait a minute, I didn’t come.’ So I made him sit on my face and he said grudgingly ‘Okay,’ so I could get off. So it was a playful relationship. But he could turn it off. I would never turn it off… He was a brat. Other than that, the relationship was purely bonding, real friends, love and respectful, really into art and esoteric literature and very young type things.”
