This one hurts more than most. Not sure why, but it does.

Good grief, they seem to be getting picked off one by one this year; the current Grim Reaper is obviously a big music fan. Thank you Lou, for your music, but also for the pure attitude!

JJ, Ritchie, Lou … it’s been a bad year :cry:

Lou Reed had a huge influence on how I developed as a musician and an artist.

R.I.P.

:cry:

+1
For me it is because he helped to change things.

Many are good.

Lou Reed was good and also a game changer.

R.I.P. and repect.

RIP Lou…

Walk On The Wld Side is still one of my favorites…

Sad, Sad day indeed… He and the Velvets were a MAJOR influence in my younger years as i’m sure they were, indeed STILL are and i suspect will be for MANY others for some time to come…

Thanks for the music!!!

This was a classic!

R.I.P.

He made the local newspaper today, it’s sad :frowning:

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

‘Venus in furs’ coming in my mind again in cycle since yesterday evening… As essential for me as ‘Tomorrow never knows’, ‘Gimme shelter’, ‘A pillow of wind’, ‘5D’ or few other gems like this.

RIP, Lou, and thanks for all… :frowning:

Lou Reed had “the Gift”

+1 RIP

I know people will scoff and disagree with me, but I think he’s the most important figure in the history of Rock music. There, I said it

Time steals another one… :frowning:
