According to Rolling Stone, Lou Reed died, cause unknown at the time. He was 71: Lou Reed, Velvet Underground Leader and Rock Pioneer, Dead at 71 | Music News | Rolling Stone

he defined an era for me, loved his music. RIP

He had a good run considering. Still a drag.

Had no idea he was married to Laurie Anderson.

Sad, sad news.

I was surprised he and Laurie only got married in 2008.

Seems like they'd been together forever.

One of the greatest, and amongst my personal favourites. A sad day. Good luck to you wherever you are, Lou - you helped inspire across the generations like few others.

Yeah, I'm going through his whole catalogue tonight, in memory. Cheers to you, old man.
