Is dead. On a "Sunday Morning" though . . .


Easily one of my top 5 favorite musicians of all time.

I was surprised at how much this bothered me today. Reed, Iggy, and Bowie were the three guys who really got me into music in a serious way.

It's a genius lost, for sure.

Lou Reed was a true artist, one who channeled his art through music like an unstoppable train. He was a rare breed.

I hate the term "legend", but it most certainly applies to him... maybe reluctantly on his part.

Lou Reed may have expired in the physical sense - but his music will last many more lifetimes.

Rest well my friend.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
