Default Lou Reed passed

Lou Reed died today. He was 71 years old. I'm kind of surprised he lived so long.
R.I.P.

I liked some of his stuff, but, some of it was just New York style I guess and I'm a country boy. Still, he did some make some innovative music. I'm sure he had an interesting life around some very creative people.

Yeah, he was definitely NY based but he was a huge influence on a couple of generations. With all of his incarnations, I'll always go back to his solo version of Sweet Jane.
Others will probably rag on me for that but it's still one of my favorites.

I'm always glad that everyone isn't like me because the world would be a really boring place if they where. Lou Reed was one of those people that wasn't like anyone else, and no matter what you think about him he made the world a little more interesting. I respected some of what he did and I wasn't really a fan, but I can say the world seems a little more drab without him in it. May he rest in peace.

The Trinity Sessions album is a big favorite of mind. Great mood album for setting the tone, if you know what I mean.
