Watch Beck & Karen O Cover Lou Reed At The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Inductions
Over the weekend, the late Lou Reed was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame alongside Green Day, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bill Withers, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Patti Smith introduced Reed, and his widow, the experimental musician Laurie Anderson, made an emotional speech in his honor. As a tribute to Reed, Beck and fun.’s Nate Ruess performed the “Satellite Of Love,” while the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner and Karen O (who is pregnant) took on “Vicious.” Both songs were released on Reed’s seminal 1972 solo album Transformer. Watch both performances below.
