R.I.P Lou Reed

I never had any interest in the Beatles and only a passing interest in the Stones and Bob Dylan. However, Lou Reed and his music have fascinated me since as long as I can remember. I wore out a vinyl copy of Transformer when I was in my late teens and have most of the music the Velvet Underground recorded. They're in my top five bands (I think maybe top three)

Anyway, I was shocked to see Lou Reed died earlier today. Tom Robinson was playing his music on the BBC and hopefully there'll be more to follow tomorrow, when I'm out in the car. The surprise was Lou was 71 years old. I thought he was probably older than that, although he's 'lived a bit' and has done well to top three score and ten
