Lou Reed: "I Dunno, What's The Difference?"

In 1974, Lou Reed flew to Sydney to perform two sold out concerts. As part of the trip, Lou was forced to endure a ridiculous press conference where he was cross-examined by a group of Australian news reporters.

The interview is done in a style reminiscent to the Warhol school of deadpan "show-no-emotion" answers. Lou turns the tables on the redneck Australian journalists, and comes off cooler than Marlon Brando in a scene straight out of the "The Wild One."

Reporter: "Could I put it bluntly... parden the question, but are you a transvestite or a homosexual?"

Lou: "Sometimes."

Reporter: "Which one?"

Lou: "What's the difference?"
