As you are no doubt aware, Lou Reed died yesterday at the age of 71. I won’t bore you with a “Lou Reed was super important to me when I was in college” story. He was, especially when I moved to Santa Cruz and didn’t really know anyone. But Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground were super important to a lot of people, at least most of the people I know, and I’m hardly a VU fanatic. They were simply a great, really influential band. So here’s a little something sweet for your Monday.
