Punk Icon And Metallica Collaborator Lou Reed Dies


Lou with Metallica
Lou Reed, the Velvet Underground member who worked with Metallica and ruined their reputation, has died.

Guess that means we’re definitely not getting a Lulu follow-up. Good.

Reed, a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist for the Velvet Underground who also worked as a solo artist, died Sunday on Long Island.

He was 71.

Reed’s publicist, Peter Noble, confirmed Reed’s death but would not release any details about his passing.

Reed had undergone a liver transplant in May.

He allegedly died in the presence of his wife, musician and performance artist Laurie Anderson.
