Just read the news that Lou Reed passed on.  And just before bedtime.  This does not make for pleasant dreams. While I am not the biggest fan, this really makes me sad.  I may not have heard each and every music he’s recorded or released, but his music influenced me in more ways than one – whether with the Velvets or his solo career.  Truly, a great artist in every sense of the word.

I am just at a loss for words now.  The only thing I can say now is: thank you, man.  Your music “lingers on”!
