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.
