Lou reed is Dead


Recommended Posts

It is always sad when someone passes on and I would not be the one to dance on anyone's grave (unlike a few on here when Maggtie Thatcher died!). But in truth, I managed to live through this guy's heyday without even hearing of him. The snippits of his music I heard on the news did not impress me but a reported remark he apparently once made gives me some hope that he at least knew a bit about music. He was quoted as saying, in effect: "One chord is great, two even better but when you get to three you're into jazz."

I don't take it literally, of course, but it suggests to me that HE knew what he was playing was crap if no-one else did.
