  1. This is sad, sad news. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time and have a fairly large assortment of albums; Transformer, The Blue Mask, Magic and Loss, just to name a few. Lou Reed was a poet, a punk, a musician. Above everything else he was artist extraordinaire. Rest in Peace, sir.

      1. I first discovered him with the magnificent The Blue Mask and then worked back from there to Transformer, The Bells, Growing Up in Public, etc,; and forward to New York and Magic and Loss, which I consider to be a masterpiece. The news of his passing has floored me to say the least.
