Phil Collins

2013Lou Reed, solo artist and member of The Velvet Underground, passed away at the age of 71 on this date, 10/27 in 2013. He was the original outsider, spurned by his family and many in the music business, even after he founded the hugely influential band the Velvet Underground with the support of pop art legend Andy Warhol. Lou's musical vision prefigured aspects of prog, new wave, punk and glam rock years before the fact. In the Seventies, Lou struck out on his own with sometimes shocking albums such as Transformer, Berlin and Rock and Roll Animal that exposed the underbelly of sex, drugs and rock like no other. American music lost a true original when Lou Reed checked out.
