RIP Lou Reed

RIP Lou Reed

There are plenty who will find far better words than I to mourn the passing of Lou Reed.

Suffice to say he soundtracked much of my teenage years and fuelled many bedroom dreams of partying with NY’s avant-garde finest and haughty, heroin fuelled ice maidens. Only a few weeks ago I splashed some download credits on exploring his later back catalogue of solo albums like Set The Twilight Reeling and The Raven while Transformer, Berlin, Coney Island Baby and the live album Rock n Roll Animal are amongst the very finest records of the past forty years.

Like Brian Eno once said, “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.” As influences go, he was at the very top of the tree.

RiP Lou Reed.
