Listening to The Guitar Amp Tapes was a turning point for me. Hearing the VU was like finding a key to unlock all sorts of hidden secrets.

Bad news.

My wife uncovered a Brian Eno quote & I am paraphrasing, but it goes something to the effect of "The 1st VU record only sold 30,000 copies in its first few years, but every one of those 30,000 persons started a band."

It was his wife, his life, and utltimately his death.

He had an impressive constitution to make it to all the way to 71. I got into his music during the 1980's VU revival at the behest of rock critics and it was not a bum steer. How much great music would not exist without Lou Reed and the VU? RIP.

What a great body of work he left us. And indeed, an inspiration to folks without the finest of voices or the most perfect of instrumental technique.

RIP Lou Reed.

I love that Scepter Sessions record. Just goes to show you how fully formed they were even before the first record came out.

i remember about 1984 playing the VU in my high school common room, and about 30 mullet sporting, pixie boot wearing U2/simple minds fans screaming "get that shit off, put on something decent like Big Country"
And then my friend would put on something by Jim Foetus, and i'd shout "get that shit off, put on something decent like Big Country".
I sometimes leave them for several years at a time, but always go back to them.
RIP Lou

I think I had that exact same moment. Getting ahold of my first velvets recording (an 8-track of Archetypes) was like getting a bite of forbidden fruit.
