Lou Reed died today. He was 71 years old. I'm kind of surprised he lived so long.
Saw that and was sad...
A little flash back on this artist and his time...
Whew....the goods were good back then!
Sad news.... R.I.P. and may your music live forever.....
R.I.P. Mr. Reed, your music was...interesting.
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.
RIP. I like the Cowboy Junkies cover of Sweet Jane.
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.
I liked some of his solo work, and some of the Velvet Underground songs, but mostly it was too dense for me to enjoy at the time. I liked it more as the years went by. Lou Reed was much more influential to other musicians than he was a household name.
As has been stated before, surprised he lived as long as he did .
One of my favorite albums as well. The auditory clarity of it is amazing for the time. And the fact that it was recorded with a single mic touches the AV nerd in me. I listened to it frequently underway on the boat when I needed some peace and a calming vibe. Hearing a female voice is a treat after a couple months under water surrounded by dudes.
That's a shame, but I'm glad he made it so long. I bet noone saw that coming, him included.
He was one of those "Originals" in the biz...
