Founding member of The Velvet Underground plus a terrific solo career, Lou's had a gift in which what he explored turned to gold. Lou would test the boundaries and experiment which in turn became his legacy.

David Bowie was a dear friend of his, I would go as far as saying they were cut from the same cloth, at Lou's funeral David would perform the eulogy and said this of Lou Reed, "a master."

In the words of Morrissey, "Thank God for those, like Lou, who move within their own laws, otherwise imagine how dull the world would be."
