Lou Reed: 1942-2013

Legendary musician Lou Reed has reportedly died at the age of 71. No cause of death has been released yet, but the Velvet Underground songwriter underwent a liver transplant back in May.

Reed leaves behind a truly immeasurable legacy through his work with the seminal art-rock band as well as his solo career. Stay tuned for a full obituary and more details as we get them, and in the meantime, put on “Sunday Morning” and pay your respects.

Update: Reed’s UK agent Andy Woolliscroft has confirmed the news to The Guardian, saying simply, “Yes, I’m afraid it’s true. I’m very upset.”
