Just saw that in the local news. He'll be missed.

Not a good day for rock and roll that's for sure.
I did read the news. Sad news. R.I.P.
Another of the greats - and a true rock'n'roll pioneer - gone.
Mind you, I can't tell you how many times I've cursed him when I've tried to play "Sweet Jane" (easy enough, D A G Bm G and A for the verses, and D and G for the choruses) and sing it at the same time (again, I can do a pretty fair impression of his vocal line, got the phrasing down to a tee) - putting guitar and vocal together is a real pain for that song! Vicious is easier, Waiting For The Man not too hard, and Walk on the Wild Side pretty easy - and thanks to Dan (Laz) for showing me the bass line!
RIP, Lou....you will be greatly missed.

I was a huge fan of Lou Reed back in the 70's, they had a special on yesterday morning about him, After that I had to break out some of his songs to listen to.
Rock and Roll Animal was/is one of my all time favorite albums.
We'll miss you Lou.
"It's all about stickin it to the man!"
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
