Actually, I think Lou recently performed a version of MMM at a festival
in Europe... I remember his last interview in the Wire had him talking
seriously about MMM (and this was at the release of The Raven, too).

Here's something from a trader's page:
 

Artist

Comment
 The first ever live performance of Metal Machine Music. No, itís not a
joke. German ensemble Zeitkratzer perform it, along with a bunch of
music from Lou Reed and Robert Wilsonís play POEtry. Lou sits in on
guitar towards the end. Good interview. Pretty good audience recording,
but Iíd recommend the Venice recording (see below) if youíre not a
completist.
