Lou Reed Tribute: “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” by My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis - 2013 Bridge School Benefit Concerts
As we've posted over last several days, many, many highlights from the 2013 Bridge School Benefit Concerts.
The loss of the hugely influential Lou Reed has inspired any number of tributes since with certainly more to come.
So with held breath this Sunday, one wondered not if -- but who - would step forward to pay homage to Mr. Street Hassle himself. The tribute task fell to My Morning Jacket's Jim James, who covered the Velvet Underground’s “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” along with Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis, and more.
On February 18, 2010, Lou Reed paid tribute to Neil Young at a concert for the Vancouver Olympics Tribute. Coming on stage in leather, Reed played a heavy electric rap version of “Helpless”.

So Lou, the dirty boulevard just got a little dirtier.
