    Good Bye Lou Reed

    Dead at 71. Taking a walk on the wild side.

    Lou Reed dead at 71: New York City rock pioneer, The Velvet Underground musician died Sunday - NY Daily News

    Never much of a fan of the Velvets, but he was undoubtedly a pioneer and innovator in popular music.

    A great figure in modern music has passed.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed dies at 71, literary agent says

    Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed dies at 71, literary agent says | Fox News

    Lou Reed, the frontman of the rock band the Velvet Underground, has died at age 71 from an ailment related to his recent liver transplant, his literary agent says.
    "The first Velvet Underground record sold 30,000 copies in the first five years," Brian Eno, who produced albums by Roxy Music and Talking Heads among others, once said. "I think everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band!"
    Was never a big fan, but he did break ground that opened the door for future genres and acts.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The Brian Eno quote is famous and not entirely untrue. That first album was one of the two or three most influential albums of all time. Listen to this and realize it is from 1967:



    Both lyrically and musically nothing quite like this had been done. Reveling in feedback to create the musical feel of using heroin, and the lyrics not being for or against, but simple a chronicle of what it like.

    But this is my favorite VU song, and I think one of the more beautiful songs ever made:
