Lou Reed has died: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-24697765

I saw him in 1993 at the Wembley Velvet Underground reunion gig - amazing night, amazing man.

I just posted this in the Living Room, before I saw this. Very, very sad.

So sad! These days, 71 seems pretty young to go.
He'll be missed.

We saw him years ago in Canada ... back in the 1980s ... very cool cat ... came out, sang without a break for an hour and a half ... spoken barely a word to us, did not change expression ... cool. Transformer is player here right now ...

Well, when you have a liver transplant and still drink alcohol, something bad is gonna happen.

My husband was in mourning yesterday after hearing the news - he took it worse than the death of most relatives. His love of Lou goes back to the early Velvet Underground days, and one of our first dates back in the 1970's was to a Lou Reed concert in some seedy bar with a stage, where they charged over $10 bucks for a hamburger back when other places were still charging around $2. We saw him about 5 times since then in the 1970's, and my husband said the fact that I didn't run away screaming after listening to Transformer and Berlin made him aware that I was "the one" and he proposed during one of the concerts at the Capitol Theater. We now own just about every album he ever put out on LP and 11 on CD's, 12 if you include the 2 copies of Metal Machine Music. Hudson River Meditations I frequently play when I'm stressed out and need to clear my head. We played a few of them last night and I've had Lou concerts and the album he did with Metallica, Lulu, his last album, playing on YouTube all morning.

My favorite "Lou" quote, when it was discovered by fans that he *wasn't* a druggie transvestite: "Nobody does 'Lou Reed' better than I do." (chuckle) While looking for that link I remembered that one of my husband's best friends, his best man at our wedding, can be heard screaming "Loooooouuuuu" during the concert that the album "Take No Prisoners" was recorded at. The good old days. (sigh)

This is awesome; thanks so much for sharing. My older siblings were the right age for the VU (sadly, two of them developed serious drug problems, with which my surviving brother still struggles), so I've literally been listening to them and to Lou Reed's solo work since I was a toddler. One of the things he did so well - maybe better than anyone - was take music and lyrics to some really challenging places and then add this unexpected note of absolute sweetness. Sweet Jane is one of my favorite songs (and its bridge is arguably the apotheosis of what I'm talking about), but it happened a few years earlier, and maybe more startlingly, on Heroin, which is simultaneously troubling, seductive, terrifying, and yet somehow just beautiful. And what makes you feel happier and more hopeful than Rock n Roll? Or more swoony than Perfect Day? He was a great artist who left a great legacy.

It was the Bottom Line. Does that place still exist?

Netflix finally sent us Berlin, the concert of the album done by Julian Schnabel. Pretty good, considering I haven't heard it since the 1970's even though we still own it on vinyl. Hubby wants to watch it at least twice more before returning it.
