Damn. Lou has left the building.
Sad news this Sunday morning with the word of Lou Reed’s passing at age 71. To say that his impact on every person you or I know was deep is a gross understatement. Here’s lookin’ at you, Lou.
THE DANDY WARHOLS
This was the most depressing week of my life. I should’ve just dug in and got it over with in like a day. God it’s an amazing story but wow is it ever brutal.
Somehow I think it’s important to know how things really went down with the whole independence from England thing and this book seems to have the greatest number of personal letters and memoirs as well as a conservative writer who stays out of his own way and lets you just get way inside this beast.
I hugely recommend it but try to get it over with as quickly as possible cuz knowing how it ends doesn’t really help.
