Never liked his music actually. And his collaboration with Metallica was plainly horrible. RIP anyway.

Like Gloria, I was lucky enough to see The Velvet Underground. It was at Glastonbury in 1993. Magisterial!

Lou Reed will be missed. Lou was too much of a cerebral musician to have been appreciated in his early days.
I have several of his LP albums including Nico's too.
Will need to look for them and play them one of these days.
Yes, i still play LPs on a nice turntable. lol.
Sounds on LPs play warmer than those from a CD.

ty, Cal.

Every time I hear about Lou Reed I think of the white album with the banana. he sang the song heroin which was a very cool song in the 60's.

Another one has left us that many of us grew up listening to. For those who would like to see the boys early in life as the Velvet Underground here is Sunday Morning.
