The Lou in question is Lou Reed, the erstwhile leader of the Velvet Underground who died in 2013. Nils Lofgren and Reed crossed paths in the late '70s, when producer Bob Ezrin -- who helmed Reed's Berlin in 1973 and was working with Lofgren on a new record -- introduced the pair. Hitting it off, Lofgren and Reed wrote a clutch of songs which appeared on their 1979 albums Nils and The Bells, but these six songs weren't all that the duo wrote together.
