Lou Reed.

Lou Reed at Lollapalooza, photo by me.
I wrote a brief piece on Lou Reed yesterday, and that's all I can really say. What else is there for someone like me to say, really? Especially when so many out there can say it better. Take, for instance, Jim DeRogatis' lovely remembrance of Reed, or Metric singer Emily Haines' thoughts that brought a literal tear to my eye. If you're only going to read two things on Lou, those are the two I would read if I were you.

And lest we forget Lou's crazier moments, here's a duet between him and Pavarotti* my creative director Dave turned me onto.

*I swear at the 1:20 mark Lou is looking at Pavarotti and thinking, "What is he doing to my song?!"
