Val Kilmer Writes Song About Lou Reed
Kilmer explains, "I was listening to David Essex's 'Rock On'... and out of nowhere it just says 'Jimmy Dean' in one of the lyrics, who wasn't a rock 'n' roller but he was a rebel and sort of makes sense in the song. I was thinking about it and I called my writing partner and I said, 'I was just thinking about what's cool, who's cool... How about Lou Reed?' So we wrote the song and it's a very nice song and then, out of nowhere, he came to the ranch, so I'm gonna write a song called lots and lots and lots of money."
Kilmer was initially too timid to tell Reed he'd written a song about him, but realized it's the ultimate tribute after punky pop act Bowling For Soup wrote a song about the actor. He jokes, "I was very flattered and then I met them... It's a good song."
