    RIP Lou Reed...Rock and Roll Animal...

    Lou Reed rose to fame as the lead singer of the Velvet Underground back in the early '70s. His passing at age 71 is yet another piece of the Rock and Roll puzzle gone missing. I'm sure he is enjoying his "Walk on the Wild Side" and doing it his way even on the other side.
    Here is Sweet Jane live with the intro you don't get to hear much.

    From Laurie

    (Appearing in the East Hampton Star)

    To our neighbors:

    What a beautiful fall! Everything shimmering and golden and all that incredible soft light. Water surrounding us.

    Lou and I have spent a lot of time here in the past few years, and even though we're city people this is our spiritual home.

    Last week I promised Lou to get him out of the hospital and come home to Springs. And we made it!

    Lou was a tai chi master and spent his last days here being happy and dazzled by the beauty and power and softness of nature. He died on Sunday morning looking at the trees and doing the famous 21 form of tai chi with just his musician hands moving through the air.

    Lou was a prince and a fighter and I know his songs of the pain and beauty in the world will fill many people with the incredible joy he felt for life. Long live the beauty that comes down and through and onto all of us.

    - Laurie Anderson

    his loving wife and eternal friend

    Very Cool Somehow I don't think the realization of the passing of the 'Beib at 71 will stir this kind of emotion.

    One of the things that has been very cool is that PBS has been running some specials that PBS had done in the past.

    Every time I hear "Take a walk on the Wild Side" I remember Todd S---- standing on top of the lockers after a game in 1975 singing in his jock when Coach Nierste came in behind and watched the whole performance. I think he had to run some "suicides" the next practice. Still cracks me up though!
