Sad news today. Lou Reed has died he was 71. His music whether it was with the Velvet Underground or his solo work has alway had a special place in my life. Hearing Velvet Underground as an impressionable youth really guided my music tastes in a big way and still does this many years on. He will certainly be missed.
This Lou Reed song brings me back to a very special time in my life. I still listen to it frequently and the news today will make it resonate a little more.
