R.I.P. - Lou Reed 1942-2013


It was with great sadness I heard that Lou Reed passed away at the age of 71. Lou had a liver transplant earlier this year.

Lou was the founder member of the iconic band the Velvet Underground the first real Punk band in my book. Their first album still stands up today as a genuine classic and I still often play songs from that album.

I saw Lou around the early seventies when he had just released his brilliant Transformer album. I remember well a magnificent version of the Velvet's Heroin. I still get goosebumps at the very thought of it.

R.I.P. Lou Reed you will be missed.
