Goodbye and thanks to Brother Lou–we hardly knew you
You were complicated, angry and cynical. But instead of letting it build up inside and end up being a menace to society – you turned it into beautiful music. Gritty honesty with a warped sense of humor is a great combo. Somehow you became the first un-natural rock star. The moves always looked forced and the voice was always nervous.
But you made it work and thanks.
You let us misfits know that we could get by.
I always thought of you as a long lost brother-It may be a bit weird but that’s what I thought, and now you are gone, may you head toward the great unknown in a blaze of feedback.
You were around for an eternity in Rock n’ Roll years but we still hardly knew you.
2 thoughts on “Lou Reed”
Rock and Roll is one of my favorite Lou Reed songs. It was actually the cover version done by Mitch Ryder that turned me on to Lou Reed and lead me to check out his other stuff.
Thanks for stopping by and this is my favorite. It is one of those tunes that gets stronger the later at night and more desolate of highway you find yourself on.
