Lou Reed is dead at 71

I felt socked in the gut reading this.
Just reading this, how sad.
The Velvet Underground basically single-handedly launched my interest in music, so this is really really difficult news to take. I had a nice little sob about it earlier, but you know, 71 is not a bad age to go-- especially if you had a lifestyle like Lou's. I just can't help but wonder whose gonna be next.
And I just read those lovely words on him in Autobiography.
'The Andre Gide of pop' as Moz lovingly called him.
A true legend.

One of the coolest photos ever.
Just seen this on the news. My first thoughts were these lines

Candy came from out on the island
In the backroom she was everybody's darlin'
But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head
She says, "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"
He said, "Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side"

Sad news.

This has stopped me in my tracks today. Truly shocked and sad to hear this. R.I.P. Lou...
So sad to hear this. Another legend gone. I wonder if Morrissey will release a statement. I feel he will seeing as he's been a huge influence on Moz.

Rest in peace Lou.
Truly sad news.
I remember being upset at how ill he looked on stage with Gorillaz, Glastonbury, 2011, but this was so unexpected.
I think anyone without a Velvet Underground album in their collection is missing out.
Rest well Lou.
Rip the king of cool, celebrate a great life he had, A massive miss to music, what a guy.
