My earliest memory of Lou Reed was hearing his music and saying, “I wanna write like that.” His voice…his poetry – it’s artistic perfection. When I heard of Lou Reed’s passing, I was devastated. We want our artistic heroes to be immortal but our flesh doesn’t work that way. It wrinkles, it ages, it fades and dies. Thankfully we have his music, brimming with energy and moments accompanied by sound. I would like to share some of my favorite Lou Reed songs. After all his music tells his story better than I ever could. RIP Lou Reed!
