Today is a sad day indeed. One of the best musicians of all time has passed away. I think most people know who Lou Reed was and at least some of his music. He and the rest of The Velvet Underground were pioneers of rock music and made some completely unforgettable songs and had a huge following back in the days. His solo career didn’t take off in the beginning and he made the infamous Metal Machine Music album that is more noise then normal music and has been voted the worst album ever on several occations. As a fan of noise music I do appritiate the album but more as a gimmick.
You will be missed Mr Reed and thank you for the music and memories attatched to them.
