LESTER MASH[ED] NOTES
To Lester Bangs: Now you did it. You fucking put down the Stones. Well, it takes a hell of a lot of nerve to do that. So Exile on Main Street is “loud, rocking mush for an indiscriminate audience.” That’s news to me. You also said Dave Edmunds’ Love Sculpture version of “Hip Shake” fucking cuts the Stones. You can go to hell. And now, because you don’t like the album, you think the Stones are decaying away. I say fuck you. Before you put down the Stones again, think first.
Devoted Stones Freak
Five albums prove Lou Reed definitely is “a more talented and versatile old fart than Bob Dylan.” I suggest you get Country Punk Shields to lick the shit off Lester Bangs’ toes.
