Musician Lou Reed Dead at 71
He was best known for his work as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter for the Velvet Underground, and his solo career.
“Reed fused street-level urgency with elements of European avant-garde music, marrying beauty and noise, while bringing a whole new lyrical honesty to rock & roll poetry,” the mag wrote.
While Lou underwent a liver transplant in May, the cause of death is currently unknown.
Our thoughts are with his family and close ones during this difficult time.
