Black-Eyed News:
Last Sunday we saw the passing of a legend; the great Lou Reed. Lou Reed was in incredibly influential artist it is hard to imagine if punk, glam and alternative music would have ever existed if not for Lou Reed. The cause of death was not released but Lou had just had a liver transplant in May. He was 71 at the time of his passing. I put the link to Rolling Stone magazines article in this week’s write Up because it is very well written and has a list of 20 Lou Reed songs that you need to listen to.
