to the White House show

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sept. 17, 1998
In front of portraits of George and Martha Washington and a roomful of formally attired VIPs, punk elder statesman Lou Reed rocked the White House Wednesday night.

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vice President Al Gore were among those spotted moving to the music at a state dinner for Czech President Vaclav Havel and his wife Dagmar. It was Havel's idea to have Reed appear as the entertainer for the dinner held in the White House East Room. Said President Clinton: "If you had as much fun as I did just now, you should give President Havel the credit because he said, 'I want Lou Reed to play tonight." The evening provided a welcome respite for a White House shaken by a continuing sex scandal. The Brooklyn-born Reed and his band played some of his classics, including "Sweet Jane."

After Reed played several songs, the Clintons and Havels appeared on stage with him and Havel had Reed sign a book of his songs that was recently published in Prague.
