Emma, R.E.M. devotee, perpetually obsessed with the early Beatles albums. This is where I freak out over The Beatles, R.E.M., The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie, The Police, The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, etc.
Lewis Allan Reed March 2nd, 1942 - October 27th, 2013
"In the midst of all the make-believe madness, the mock depravity and the pseudo-sexual anarchists, Lou Reed is the real thing."
Happy birthday to Lou Reed, who would have been 72 today! I first started listening to The Velvet Underground and Lou’s solo work shortly after Lou died and now I just can’t seem to stop. Thank you, Lou, for giving us some of the most extraordinary music of all time. We miss you dearly.
