Lou Reed is campaigning to have a New York street named after him.
The 66-year-old rocker was born in Brooklyn and has spent all of his life living in Manhattan, where he was once nicknamed the Bard of the East Village.
Reed is fiercely proud of the city, and hopes a future mayor will recognise him – in the same way punk star Joey Ramone was honoured when the 2nd Street East Village block where he once lived was officially renamed Joey Ramone Place.
Reed said: “Lou Reed Way would be nice. Any little street would do.”
