Goodbye Lou

Lou-Reedyesterday i found out that lou reed died over the weekend, sunday to be exact. i had been out of town visiting my sister. this month alone i’ve dealt with 3 deaths among friends and family, all of which were sad and sobering in their own way, but lou reed’s death was different. i had a physical reaction that felt like someone punched me in the stomach. i first heard him in college when one of my roommates played walk on the wild side for me. when i got the news that lou reed was gone yesterday, i hijacked the music @ work and played walk on the wild side, dirty boulevard, what’s good, this magic moment, sweet jane, and iggy pop’s tonight in quick succession.
