lou reed passed away today. this makes me very sad and very grateful at the same time. sad that he’s gone and grateful that he was ever here at all. the velvet underground is one of my all time favorite bands. obviously.
i remember the first time i ever heard lou reeds song “walk on the wild side”. i was probably about 8 years old and driving in my fathers mark VIII. the song came on the radio and i remember that my dad new all the words. i had no idea what they were talking about but i loved the colored girls! do da doo da doo da doo da doo
