His second liver finally gave out.

Interesting that my young FB friends are posting about him as well.

He was kind of timeless.

X worked with him for several years and he paid for our NYC hotel for a couple of weeks of rehearsals just before 9/11.

I got to experience springtime in New York, see his show in Jersey (and another one in SF at the Warfield) and hang out in seedy underground bars with all those characters.

He had quite the life and was a crusty old bastard.

My 21 yr old son posted it on facebook, not 5 minutes after I saw the news article.

I seriously loved Lou Reed and listened over and over to his albums in high school. Particularly loved the album 'Berlin' where every song told a story about a down and out couple that was heartbreaking.

I heard him perform at CBGBs in the Village in 1978. Gulp. So long ago. His Sweet Jane went on and on for what felt like an hour and I thought his live performance a drag. I wasn't on the same drugs he was. But I still loved him for his dry wit, the poignancy in his songs that told stories about real people.

I heard him perform here in California about 6 years ago and he did new material of poetry and minimalist music and again I thought it was a drag. I think as a performer he had a very fuck-you-if -you -don't-like-it attitude. Definitely not one to sweet talk the audience.

i feel sad that his light has gone out in this world. He just so nailed some real and raw stuff in his songs and I will always love him for that.

I agree about his live stuff, he was in his own little world, but some people loved it.

When I heard "Heroin" for the first time it gave me chills. That song killed any curiosity about heroin I might have had at 15.

Little known fact, his parents had him committed very early on and he had electro shock treatments.

Explains a lot.

I don't know if you can see this video over the pond, butwhen the BBC used this, I thought it was amazing.

Or try searching BBC Perfect Day.

My late father was a huge Lou Reed fan. I grew up on Lou Reed/Velvet Underground. I remember "Last Great American Whale" being played over and over.

RIP.

Good musician, shitty person generally. Still, Take a Walk on the Wild Side is pretty iconic!

I listened to Terry Gross interview his longtime friend and publicist yesterday on Fresh Air.

They talked about how he wrote rock and roll songs about subjects that no one was touching at that time, and he attempted to be very honest in his poetry. He wrote about heroin, gay sex, addiction, suicide...

He epitomized New York and his music did not do well in California...

Even that song, Perfect Day, is sweet, but with so much pain underneath. Like he's hanging on to life by his fingernails.

Berlin was a flop, but I listened to it as a teen and felt like he understood and expressed something about depression and emotional pain that rang true, that I shared, and I loved that album. It's scary to realize as a 53 year old what I related to when I was 15.

I am having a personal Lou Reed Fest this week:

Here is a link to Rock and Roll Animal

Berlin

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkI9a20yHKk

I never hear these songs in restrospectives of oldie goldies of the 70s. It's good to hear real rock and roll again...

One of my favorite musicians. Started listening to him back in 1980 or so and he still tends to slip into my smartphone or ipod. One of those performers where you tend to listen to a whole record in the order the music was pressed on it.

I preferred his more melancholy work like Berlin.
I only once saw him in concert. He was promoting his Edgar Alan Poe influenced record The Raven at a festival I went to around 2004 or so. Not exactly a bucket of flowers and no hits at all. The audience was a mixed bunch and during the first hour a large part slipped away leaving the die-hard fans. When Reed finished his standard set of new Raven songs he said something about appreciating us listening to his new stuff and as a reward he counted the band into White Light and then took all his best songs.

Sheesh… When your idols from the teenage years start kicking the bucket…
