In Memoriam: Lou Reed

lou-reedBorn Lewis Allan (Lou) Reed, March 2, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York.

Died October 27, 2013.

Lou Reed, founder of The Velvet Underground, died today.  No cause of death was announced.

While I know very little of Reed, the name is familiar and I am familiar with his one solo hit, Walk on the Wild Side.  Reed was an inspiration for a wide variety of musical artists and his death will not go unnoticed.

Let’s all send good vibes out to his family and friends and let them know he will not be forgotten.
