Sad news just coming across the internets that legendary rock ‘n’ roller Lou Reed has died. I’m pretty fond of Transformer and New York and despite not being a huge fan of the Velvets, I have a lingering affection for the band as my dear departed friend Hetty’s husband, Angus, used to be their drummer before quitting in the early days. Hetty said that Angus wrote some of the early tunes.
Anyway, Lou kept it going through the years and made some great records.
Here’s Andy’s Chest from Transformer, very funky!
