Deborah Harry & Boy George pay tribute to Lou Reed in new film

Blondie star Deborah Harry and Boy George have joined a host of stars in a new documentary tribute to the late Lou Reed. The BBC film, which will debut in the U.K. on Sunday (15Dec13), will also feature Reed’s former Velvet Underground bandmates Moe Tucker and Doug Yule, Thurston Moore, guitarist Steve Hunter, novelist Paul Auster and photographer Mick Rock.
In a release about the film, a BBC spokesman says, “With the help of friends, fellow musicians, critics and those who have been inspired not only by his music, but also by his famously contrary approach to almost everything, the documentary looks at how Reed not only helped to shape a generation but also helped to create a truly alternative, independent rock scene, while also providing New York with its most provocative and potent soundtrack.”
Reed died in October (13), aged 71.
