    RIP Lou Reed

    An icon, dead at 71.

    Need I say more?
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Wow... That sucks.

    I've had 'Rock 'n Roll Animal' playing in my car for the last several weeks.

    Turned my 15 year old step-son on to him. He dug the peaks and valleys of 'Rock 'n Roll'.

    I know my 'life was saved by Rock 'n Roll'

    RIP

    Sad news indeed. Although he only had one hit record, Lou's influence on those who came after him is immeasurable.

    Wow- what a shame to hear. I did this fill-in gig on Thursday night and the dude leading things called out Sweet Jane and I played it with them (had never played it before in my life) and enjoyed doing so. Weird... Sad to hear.
