Lou Reed Wild About Same-Sex Marriage

Lou Reed spoke out for the rights of same-sex couples to marry, literally! Here's the scoop:

"A live recording of the one-night-only benefit concert WEDrock, held in New York City on April 28, 2004, will be released on CD by Centaur Entertainment on May 2, 2006. The album features a star-studded line-up of musicians and entertainers all lending support in favor of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.
...
"Included in the WEDrock live recording are the wildly and wonderful acerbic Sandra Bernhard, the side-splitting, funny-lady herself Margaret Cho, the talented, glam-sensation John Cameron Mitchell, the powerful indie rock sounds of Le Tigre and Sleater-Kinney, Bob Mould of Husker Du and Sugar, and the Tony Award winning actor Alan Cumming. The legendary Lou Reed also makes a guest appearance, delivering a spoken-word version of his classic hit 'Walk On The Wild Side.'"

I wasn't aware that there was a non-spoken-word version of that song, but good for him anyway.
