What can we say – Lou Reed would’ve been 79 years old today. Remembering the singer / songwriter / poet / musician / performer who led us all down a walk on the wild side.
“It's been 20 years since that day. A normal festival show day...show up 5 hours ahead. Wait for your slot. I barely remember it... Sunny, I think. Lou Reed played, I think. Then rain and wind. But nothing has been the same since.” Full statement:
Lou Reed with Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground, New York, ca. 1966
Very sad to hear the news of Lou Reed's passing. Another rocknroll legend has left us mere mortals behind. Thanks for the inspiration, Lou.
