Farewell, Lou Reed. New York icon. King of the underground rock world.
As we mournReed’s passing at the age of 71 – his death likely related to the liver transplant he had earlier this year – it’s natural to seek comfort in his songs.
Rolling Stone has compiled a solid list of 20 essential Reed tracks.
But in case you needed proof of his influence, there is a heady list of artists who have covered his songs.
Take our poll and tell us who you think did Reed’s (and/or The Velvet Underground’s) music justice the best, and leave your memories of the rock ‘n’ roll icon in the comments section below.
