Re: R.I.P. Lou Reed

It's sad that this thread only has 3 replies. I was in New York on Sunday when the news hit that he had died. I was struck by how few people I talked to seemed to particularly care. Rock and roll is truly dead.

I'm almost 30, which means I'm much too young to be contemporary with any of his music. I heard the song Heroin for the first time when I was 15. I'll never forget it.

Re: R.I.P. Lou Reed

Yeah, this news really made me sad earlier in the week.... I was a little surprised not to see a thread about it, but I admittedly didn't look very hard (since it was a depressing topic).

Too many good songs to list, but I'll throw out a few of my favorites:

Re: R.I.P. Lou Reed

Honestly, I've never even heard of him. RIP, though.
