RIP Lou Reed

Lou Reed, Velvet Underground Leader and Rock Pioneer, Dead at 71 
This is another tough one - far, far too young and still vital. Lou's music has been with me since I was a teen. Of course, "Walk on the Wild Side" was the big hit and Rock'n'Roll Animal was a huge album, but then fellow Gizmos Kenne Highland and Eddie Flowers turned me on to the early Velvets and his crazed noise leads and I was hooked forever.

Damn, a world without Lou...hard to imagine.
