I used to deliver furniture to Lou Reed's apartment in the early 90's. He was aloof but polite. Had a rooftop rehearsal studio containing one guitar, a mesa boogie and a chair. Pictures of him and Laurie on the walls.

Sorry for your loss, Jeezy. My GM is going to be 92 in November. I fear that inevitable day.

Sorry Jeezy, hope most of those 96 were good ones. Saw Gary Numan last night. Good show but wish he had ended with a Lou cover,being how Mr. Reed was so seminal to that genre.

It was moving before, and now it's even more intense.

Saw Lou last year in concert and I'm sad to say it was terrible.
  9:33am jan:

Junior Dad- new to these ears, but sounds great. Have you played it on your show before? I wasn't very informed about Lou's music, obviously familiar with the Velvet Underground, but in the mid 70s my idea of a clever prank was to put enough coins in the local bar's jukebox to play
"Walk on the Wild Side" playing 4 times in a row and promptly walk out.
Ken, will you play more Lou for those who don't know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34am crateslinger:

@ trs... Too soon? Wanna hear about John Lennon's studio? His white piano is still set up in a small room next to the service elevator in his widow's apartment.
  9:34am Irene:

Wow, I didn't think there was anything good on the Lulu album! Lou & Metallica actually work well together on this one.

Well, anyway. I was in his house and he was nice to me. It was cool to see the austerity of his life style. Black t-shirt, jeans, wide open spaces and some photos of his wife. Props Lou! Thanks for the tip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am Ken:

Jan, I wasn't planning on playing a ton more Lou, I guess because the station's been playing SO MUCH the last four days. But I'll play a few more probably.
  9:50am Cecile:

trs, I didn't see it that way.
If I went to someone's house, famous or not, I'd talk about what I liked there.
Avatar 9:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- my 2cents: I don't see what crosses a boundary about saying he was aloof but polite & was austerely furnished w/ a guitar & amp - 20 years ago...seems respectful & interesting to me...but I am a Yank - might even be a particularly NYC thang (I'm not one)...
Avatar 9:51am Mark S:

Sister Ray!
  9:51am Sam:

How about 3 hours of The Raven?
  9:52am Cecile:

Unless they asked me not to. Also, about as intimate as I would get would be pictures on the walls or what was playing on the stereo.
Avatar 9:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63: John & Yoko in NYC stories - the street-level realness was something Lennon appreciated, & something Reed symbolized...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Ken:

Everybody's been playing the Sister Ray - Heroin - Metal Machine stuff - I'd prefer to highlight his pretty quiet ballads, if anything.
  9:53am Cecile:

Could you play some Beefheart?
I miss him every damn day.
  9:54am Peanut Gallery:

I love this Little Axe record!
  9:54am trs:

@celcile Yes, but talking with friends and publicizing are two very different things.
Would you stand on a street corner on a soapbox? Would you call a tabloid and sell and trade it for money. or other benefits? Would you enter it into a searchable record at the government office?

I heard a Jews Harp expert(?) insist it is the real name for the instrument and that any offense taken or forced alternative is misplaced, yet there's no explanation or particular association he knows of for the name.
He also thought it was no longer marketed as the Snoopy Harp, but I got one o' them just last spring.
