LOU REED DEAD


How does somebody write a remembrance of a god?  I saw Lou Reed in concert on a date 25 years ago at Northrup Auditorium.  At the time I had only just discovered The Velvets, so it was pretty exciting for me.  He was touring for his awful Mistrial album, but the band was hot and he played LOADS of Velvet Underground songs.  To this day it ranks in my top five concerts of all time.

Thanks for the music, you cranky bastard.
