Lou Reed

He was a real curmudgeon, but a fine musician.

Hard to believe I've been listening to that stuff for over 40 years. Still love it. Getting old. Getting sentimental. Spent all afternoon yesterday playing old VU records.

On the flip side, had a chance to get involved in the Rock scene as a teen ager. Thought about it as a life choice. Didn't follow through. Some regrets, but not many. A lot of those guys lived hard, died young.

I love life.

I've been a huge fan of VU since I was a kid. They'd been around a while by then and they just seemed dangerous somehow. Edgy. I love them.

I love Nico more, though, I have to say. One of my greatest regrets is not going to see her in concert in Aberdeen in the early 80s. She died not long after. That voice. She was perfect for VU.
