Lou Reed is 65 today. Hard to believe.
Sure, the Velvet Underground was more than just the one guy, but to me he was the main man. "Heroin" and "I'm Waitin' for my Man" are pure Reed. I have all the Velvets LPs and most of Reed's solo LPs. Some great, great stuff there. "Satellite of Love." "The Ocean." "Walk on the Wild Side." Happy Medicare, Lou!
