Lou Reed was a ground-breaking American musician and photographer who made a name for himself as founder of the Velvet Underground in the late 60’s. Despite their lack of mainstream commercial or sustained success, the band’s distinctive work elevated them to cult status. Reed went on to have a successful solo career during the 70’s, leveraging his poetic songwriting talent and sexually-ambiguous persona. In 1987, Reed reunited with VU co-founder John Cale, and they toured sporadically well into the 90’s. And VU were inducted into the Rock & Hall of Fame in 1996. Reed continued to be a prolific producer & contributor for fellow musicians well into the 2000’s, but also presented & published his own photography. Earlier this year, Reed underwent a liver transplant. He died earlier today at age 71.
