He did live a hard life though. Anyone know that when he was a teenager he was institutionalized and recieved shock therapy because he was bisexual? Yeah, not gay, but bisexual. Crazy how times have changed.
I loved Velvet Underground, and so did a lot of influential musicians, writers, Artists and poets who wouldn't be where they are today without Reed and Velvet Underground's influence.
RIP Lou Reed, and Thank you for everything you've given to music.
