Lou Reed interviewed in 1984

If it’s not easy to have a good time; even smiling makes your face ache…

Babybat: What’s wrong?
Eldergoth: Nothing, just crying over Lou Reed, don’t mind me.
Babybat: Um… isn’t your grandmother in the hospital?
Eldergoth: Yeah, but…
Babybat: But what?
Eldergoth: SHUT UP! THAT’S WHAT!

Babybat: What’s wrong?

Lou asked David if he would be interested in producing the record and David replied yes - but only upon the condition that Lou would stop drinking and clean up his act. And upon that reply, the aforementioned chaos ensued.
