A T-shirt for sale online that pays tribute to the recently departedLou Reed is grabbing a whole lotta attention for the wrong reasons. It's not the legendary Velvet Underground frontman's photo that's sandwiched between the words "Lou Reed" and "1942-2013."
There is now a confirmation of the cause of Lou Reed’s death. It has been revealed that the Velvet Underground and solo star died at his home on Long Island yesterday (Oct. 27) of an ailment that stemmed from his recent liver transplant.
With the passing of Lou Reed (on October 27, 2013 - due to complications from liver disease), a lot of folks in the rock world are wondering what to make of his legacy. There are some who might ask: Who was Lou Reed? This question is probably valid - especially to someone who is younger than 40 or someone who hasn't studied rock and roll history; Lou wasn't a commercial-success in the sense of an Eric Clapton or even a Ronnie Wood. But to write off Lou Reed's importance to rock music would be unrestricted. In many ways, Lou's importance was that of the classic "behind-the-scenes" artist who created the path that others rode more easily down.
