It’s the anniversary of Lou Reed’s death and we’re having a get together for everyone that loved his music and attitude.
Lou Reed started playing and writing with the band The Velvet Underground who, while reaching only minor success during their career, have influenced a massive current of music since. Being picked up by Andy Warhol was probably to their detriment as well as advantage as they achieved a level of credibility but would also be often considered under the shadow of his wing.
When Lou Reed began his solo career in the early 70s he cemented his own position as the seminal artist we think of him today. It’s this brilliant period of his music that me and Ella would like to focus on, his music and shows during the release of the brilliant Transformer album.
