Lou Reed

So Lou Reed just died. I’ve never been a big fan of his; he’s sort of associated with punk rock which is a genre of music I find tedious (though Reed’s proto punk is quite removed from groups like The Sex Pistols or D.R.I.)

However, a few years ago I discovered Reed’s album “Growing up in Public” and I loved it. It has tons of great songs, including this one (which has a certain prescience being that Reed died from complications from a liver replacement.)

Here’s the title track from the album which is also great. Listen to that great cello-esque bass line.
