    Nils Lofgren

    Thirty-five years a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, 30 years in Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band, 50 years with Neil Young: Nils Lofgren is as: celebrated for his collaborations as for his own work. Now add to the list Lou Reed. Convened by famed producer Bob Ezrin, the pair co-wrote songs in the late Seventies, six of which anchor Blue With Lou, Lofgren’s 15th studio album.: “We watched a football game in his apartment,” says the guitarist from a hotel room in Telluride, where he’s prepping for a new Crazy Horse album. “We talked about writing casually well into the night, and came up with this initial idea before we’d get together in a loft and slog it out.”: Instead, Reed called Lofgren a month later and dictated 13 sets of lyrics he’d written to the music on a cassette the latter left him.: “He felt three right away fit [1979’s] The Bells and wanted to use them,” recounts Lofgren. “Me and Bob were thrilled. We had close to a full album of my songs, so we just picked the three that most fit the album we were making [Nils]. I picked two that I loved after that: ‘Life,’ which is on my Damaged Goods album, and ‘Driftin’ Man’ was on my Breakaway Angel album.”: The other five remained in the vault until Lofgren resurrected them, along with The Bells’ “City Lights,” for the new Blue With Lou.: “I always thought Lou should sing these, but then when we lost him, I still felt they needed to be heard. It fell on me, and I got it done. Now I feel like all 13 songs have finally been shared.”
