Lou Reed - Happy Birthday Uncle Lou!


Lou Reed was born as Lewis Reed in New York City on this day in 1942. 

"This room cost $2, 000 dollars a month, you can believe it, man, it's true. Somewhere a landlord's laughing 'til he wets his pants. No one dreams of being a doctor or a lawyer or anything. They dream of dealing on the dirty boulevard."

We are all the poorer for his not being here any more where that wit, that acerbic criticism, that critical voice?

Goin' OUT!

We miss you . . . . . . .
