Re: Lou Reed, Dead

Another legend from my youth has passed away. At age 71, too young, although he had been on the Grim Reaper's shortlist for quite a while.

Re: Lou Reed, Dead

Lou Reed offered up an interesting view to the music world.
I first read about the Velvet Underground as a kid and
thought, who could come up with a name like that? As my
music collection grew LR became a part of it... the first
punk, the first rapper, the king of white street cool and the
dark lord of rock n' roll. There will never be another like
him and there shouldn't. Peace be with you Lou Reed.

Re: Lou Reed, Dead

I didn't even know he was feeling poorly. I'm not a fan, but today, on my 64th birthday when I'm already contemplating my own mortality, this is unwelcome news indeed. RIP.

Re: Lou Reed, Dead

Lou was a part of some terrific albums. He was also a part of some really bad stuff. I'm thankful for all of it. Whether it produces great music or questionable results, I'm extremely thankful for artists who follow their muse without regard for commercial appeal. Lou did it his way. RIP Lou.
