Sony is using that song, Perfect Day, to push Playstation 4. Strange coincidence?

Enjoy a well-earned rest you bonafide sexbomb. Swoooons for the growl of Lou Reed.

There are like 4 chords in that song.

For years I assumed Lou Reed must be gay because he was involved with the Warhol crowd and sang about “Little Joe” (Dallesandro) in Take A Walk On the Wild Side.
I was really surprised when I heard he was married to Laurie Anderson!

The elevator music in Hell just got a new composer.

Love you, Lou Reed.

Please give Candy Darling a hug for me.

Say hi to Andy too Lou. RIP.
John Bisceglia says
We’ll miss you Lou. And my thoughts go out to his wife and partner for years, Laurie Anderson.

Lou was Bi, Caliban. His first girlfriend was a transvestite named Rachel. They were together for at least a decade.

I went through a Lou Reed musical phase a bit over 12 years ago. During this time Lou released a book of poetry and did a book signing at Barnes and Noble. I went to get an autograph and told him that his VU song “Venus in Furs” does something to my libido. He said in mock surprise “it DOES?.” I said “and I’m the world’s biggest puritan.” He replied “well, that’s who it’s for!”
And no, I’m not making any of this up.

About ten years ago I ran into him in the men’s room at the Quad Cinema on 13th Street. “Oh wow, you’re Lou Reed,” I said. “I’m a huge fan of yours.” He asked me if I’d give him a blow job. I just laughed because I thought he was joking. I could kick myself now.
Rest in peace, you beautiful man.

Funny that Andy didn’t mention that Lou was bi. For those who didn’t know, Lou was submitted to a horrifying treatment that was supposed to “cure” him of his bisexuality.
“They put the thing down your throat so you don’t swallow your tongue, and they put electrodes on your head. That’s what was recommended in Rockland County to discourage homosexual feelings. The effect is that you lose your memory and become a vegetable. You can’t read a book because you get to page 17 and have to go right back to page one again.”
From “Please Kill Me (1996)”

Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground were a major influence in the music scene. He will be missed.

Velvet Underground was one of the best and most influential bands in history. This is a sad day.

I hate to be in the minority, but I never thought the man had any talent whatsoever. Certainly he was no singer.
