"This not-so-revealing interview prooves more than anything else that Lou's primary interest after music is character assassination, which ended up being the whole purpose of his late 70's Live Take No Prisoners album. You find out more about who Lou hates in the course of the interview than what he thinks about anything. He seems to struggle at times to offer something interesting and controversial but fails to articulate a clear opinion on any relevant subject and always lapses back into a barrage of insults toward other entertainers. Lou's made it pretty clear that there are only a few reviewers and music journalists he has any respect for. The woman interviewing him on the CD, perfectly willing to play the weak giggling female for Lou's attempts at biting New York wit, is obviously not one of them. They never get past the "worship of the celebrity" phase of the interview into what could be a more interesting two-way exchange. The most interesting aspect of the interview is listening to Lou's condescending banter with Sterling Morrison as the Velvet Ed MacMahon in the background."
