It saddens us to report that The Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed has passed away. On Sunday, October 27, this rock legend left this world for whatever beyond you like to believe there is (if you think there is one) aged 71 – cause of death not yet released. When news of the passing hit, the rock world’s Twitter was aflame with messages of love and concern.
Reed is survived by his wife, musician Laurie Anderson. The Other Side Reviews would like to wish our condolences to the family and friends.
The album New York is my favourite work by Lou Reed. I have so many memories associated with that album.Thanks for being real Lou.
