Lou Reed March 2, 1942 - October 27, 2013 - He Took A Walk On The Wild Side

Lou Reed, influential rock singer, has died at the age of 71 from undisclosed liver related ailments (he had a liver transplant this past spring). He was known to be a heavy drinker and doper. While considered to be one of the most influential rock and roll personas of the genre, I can name only one song I know that he sang (bad on names, what can I say). Instead of naming it though, here it is, it is a good one - one of my favorite all time songs even if it is about transvestite hookers in NYC. Lou Reed surely did walk on the wild side and will not soon be forgotten.

All the best,
Glenn B
