RIP Lou Reed

I definitely didn’t listen to enough of his music, but there is a famous quote about the late founder and famed front man of The Velvet Underground, “with one listen to his music, you have a desire to become a musician.”

One of my favorite songs by The Velvet Underground is “Pale Blue Eyes”. With just this song alone, a film with any sort of romantic relationship can go from “good” to “great”. Reed was a master of his craft and inspiration for a generation of musicians.

Although no cause of death has been announced, the musician from New York City had a liver transplant in May of 2013. Reed was 71 when he passed away in New York City, Sunday, October 27th.

Enjoy this phenomenal song:
