Lou Reed: That's induction #2 for Lou, following the VU's turn back in 1996. Congrats!Comments:
sreffej odlaw - Why not The Smiths?
otap le - Why isn't Lou Reed already in the Hall of Fame?!
niven kcuhc - Still waiting for......
nrehtuos nhoj - Ridiculous that a man of his Rock & Roll significance and artistic merit had to die to get inducted. This is at least 15 years late. Someone needs to get a F%$^&ing clue.
namffoh romyes pillihp - If Green Day can get into the hall....The guy playing guitar outside of the liquor store should get in too!
sehguh kram - GREEN DAY, WHERE IS THE LOGIC ? HOW ABOUT ICONIC BANDS, THE CARS AND THE MOODY BLUES, MUCH MORE DESERVING!
ggarb samoht - And yet Warren Zevon is still not in the Hall of Fame...
itivargnam xemyta oibaf - Green Day and Lou Reed together? I'd like to die.
agetro acissej - Green day and not The Smiths? Total bullshit.
namnes rezo - There's really something wrong when green day gets in before deep purple and iron maiden ..smh
keel .b kcirtap - This is a travesty. Lou should have been inducted the first year he was eligible while he was still alive.
yenrav ffej - Cool lou reed. Berlin is a masterpiece
gnouv ycul - Kraftwerk and the Smiths should have been inducted too
rensle ttocs - Green Day SUCKS!
dhgn naham - green day?green day?really?
tnelav assilem - he should have already been there!!!! F Green day
zar lerab - Only now? The man is the the rock n roll hall of fame
eod kcin - I would prefer if Lou Reed wasn't part of this nonsense.
muabhcol yrag - Lou Reed Surely Should Be There,But Why Are Grand Funk Railroad Never Even Mentioned,Sold Out Shea Stadium Faster Than The Beatles!!
iohc ydna - Green day gets in while they're alive but Lou reed has to die to get in? Fuck that shit
lesseib nwahs - The rock and roll hall of fame is just a big sham and it has been for some time. The exclusion of Zevon and the Smiths just further emphasizes that point. I do love Lou Reed, though.
- Quick announcement about ongoing auctions of Lou's equipment - We're offering some guitar amps. (Type: link | Published: 2014-12-06T21:20:08+0000)
Lou Reed: Quick announcement about ongoing auctions of Lou's equipment - We're offering some guitar amps. We're reaching the final stages of the clearout. Lou's office where all this gear is stored is closing in a couple of months. A handful of guitar amps and cabinets are going to be listed now. A couple of Soldano units are available as of this moment. Over the coming weeks there will be units by Jim Kelley and Tone King as well. More guitar pedals too. Again, Lou had at least 1 or 2 spares of everything - we're hanging onto 1 of each for the future archive and offloading the extras. Ideally whoever buys this stuff does so with the intent to use it, not just collect it!Comments:
salguod yllig - Well this makes me feel sad :(
waldial nitram - Lou's real fans are broke as hell.
nagillum ylreveb - Such a sad day when Lou Reed passed I was shocked that more was not done My daughter who is only 19 was outraged at the lack of notice lou reed's passing received. I saw Lou Reed perform in New York and it was one of the best live shows I ever saw. I feel very lucky to have seen this great artist. Dee Dee Ramon's sister
resuh knarf - definitly doesn't like this. There are other ways to make sure these items will get to musicians or music schools who can't afford buying it. Maybe for less money, but for a good reason. This ebay thing makes me sad. I hardly can believe this is according to Lou's ideas.
lleb arabrab - As classic cars were meant to be driven (not towed to the concourse), these instruments should be played, not displayed. Anonymously donate them to a school or educational program that will USE them. It's just stuff, and we are all impermanent.
nikrah nivek - I will swap you for some of the shit I have in my house. I have a sideboard I want rid of and maybe I could throw in some slightly worn adidas sambas.
remark nairb - Why would anyone think it has to go to charity.... If it's his estate then it's his wife's if the estate sold it then the owner can make their money....
egavas kram - Its a bit fkn sad watching some people trying to cash in on something that should be in a rock museum or or on a wall in a hall of fame,one of the fathers of punk- Lou is a true rock god now, And his memory should be treasured!!
namleknif cire - If I were a Musician,
I'd go on a Spending Spree!
senoj ydnam - Would be an honour to have anything of Lou's to be able to share with others along with his music and keep his everlasting story alive for eternity.......X
ilgnorko emrehliug - Chrystian Turola e Luigi Paolo, olhem aí a chance de ter um amp do Lou Reed
htimxa leinad leahcim - Having been a Lou Reed fan for decades am at a loss to understand how this happened. The questions are: who gets the money and is this something Lou specifically requested in his will? There is something that seems very suspicious about this. If this is going to charity please say so!
To me it will have no effect on how I viewed Lou Reed and his music. Years ago a friend met Lou and got a 2nd autograph personalized to me. I am happy with that and will treasure the momento and my extensive Velvet Underground collection.
ttereve ydnar - John did you see this?
ttod nayrb - Makes me feel sad too , why must life be so hard.
noxin j nhoj - Seems like Lou would want to have given it to aspiring musicians.
ollem esined - i would just like to stand in the middle of that room for one minute and feel the Lou vibeage. That would be enough for me....
renrüht fpokshcuf nad - Any unpublished handwritten lyrics? I'll gladly pay several dollars per page!
yrreb nai - Do you guys take "IOUs"?
nairrum trebla - Stewart Hurwood: What did Lou like most about Soldano amplifiers? I don't know anything about them. Why are they good?
namffoh élnan - To sell out Lou Reed's stuff is pure idiocy. Why not gather all in one place so everyone in the future can view what this great man achievement.
Greed, .. Sucks.
liag nerak - Are there plans to donate or have closed bids of equipment to music schools / colleges - where they could be of inspiration to a new generation - I worry these items could end up sitting in executive offices as talking pieces or worse still in a garage or storage at least by selling them to educational establishments you can ensure they are used :) i wish i had the cash to own a small item - much love from a freelance visual artist and musician based in the UK x

samal .p xela - The Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop and the New York Dolls definitely set the stage for punk to arrive.

kivalcav lliw - Both playing in Rock N Roll Heaven now. RIP
xirdneh eel irok - Rip darling, I still can't believe you're gone after all this time
iccir onafets - Lou was great, but the only thing he said to the Ramones in 1975 after hearing their music was an advice to use better guitars.
He's been defined "godfather of punk", but maybe at those times he was over-focused on himself to catch the real impact of these guys: they grew up with respect for the artist but without any reason to say "thank you Lou" for any actual help. IMHO Lou showed the way to punk, while John Cale drove the bus, letting the Stooges, the Modern Lovers and many others on board for a free ride

Lou Reed: Here's the find of the day from the archive... In 1999 Lou was asked by a magazine to list his top 10 records of the century. This is the list he wrote and submitted to them. The archive team were pleased with the inclusion of Scott Walker's Tilt so if you're curious to hear it, have a go right here: http://spoti.fi/1pWsJGe Don't just take our word for it, take Lou's!Comments:
ydnul nived - nice to see him slip his wife's music in the last slot
aít oj - How much I miss you...
htims leahcim - Blood On the Tracks is definitely one of the all time great albums. That's one you always listen to from start to finish.
yelwor e ahtram - Yes, I add my vote. I miss Lou and Warren Zevon too. Two artist gone too soon. As Gurf Morlix says in a song for a friend of his, "I can almost hear the music that you might have made".
ekruob xer - Mother by John Lennon--- neverheard anything like it befor-fell in love with from the first play - that vocal melody - who ever new that a song like this would kick off the 1970's- lol=as a 45 --Masterwork
derdnik rekrap - That Lorraine Ellison record is amazing
And Jimmy Scott. Beautiful
bmoccm nivek - Very cool. TILT!
nevesytenin aog yrrag - blood on the tracks one of best albums ever..
notlim nnyl - Legend. With excellent taste in music. Hardly surprising!
rehcamleffir eoj - Glad to see that Lou was a Roland Kirk fan!
izzurt oicaj - Blood on the tracks. Bless you Lou you were damn right...
yelsmleh anoif - I've been thinking of Lou so much lately.
kiarc drahcir - Lou included Mother in his set at Hammersmith Odeon a few years ago
regelref romak harobed - Want to listen to them all right now! Great list for 1999. Wonder if he'd have changed much of it if asked 10 years later?
rehsif kram - I'm surprised Lou agreed to this silly exercise
still, his list is sublime for a moment in time
nossah adne - For me the two most notable records on the list are Hank Williams -Singles and the Harry Smith Anthology which is one of the most influential records ever. Without it, it's possible that the folk revival of the early 60s may not have happened
odracir odraude - •
Was it used?
swehttam leahcim - Somebody should have taught Lou how to write

Lou Reed: #RIP Jack Bruce. Jack played bass on the Berlin album in 1973. http://youtu.be/Z_ZXglPhalcComments:
zerep-grebor nivek - Posting from beyond the grave to welcome someone you once played with. What a guy Lou is.
mirglip yllib - Still one of my favorite albums.SO good!
noziroh eoj - I did not know that.
sniktaw .w.r - By playing bass on both Berlin and Apostrophe ('), one can even interpret Bruce as the bridge between old rivals Reed and Zappa. I also remember reading somewhere that Lou had quite a bit of respect for Jack because he requested a lyric sheet when laying down the tracks for the album. Jack was always known to be an appreciator of lyricists, and liked to know what he was playing behind.
issor las - Rest in peace jack (and Lou Reed too)
yelauq nave - How is Lou reed posting this? Too spooky!
trepsor trebor - One of the greatest unappreciated albums ....
sekciw nhoj - Is there some kind of Lou Reed devotees website out there, where people talk about Lou, swap stories etc. and generally keep Lou and his music alive.
Anyone reading this, please let me know if there is, as I'd like to be part of it.
If not, there must be an official one, which I'll take a look at.
I'm a bit like Lou in that I don't much appreciate 'Authority'
The thought of having my views and comments screened, sanitised or excluded doesn't really appeal.
For the avoidance of any doubt, I can't think of a bad thing to say about a genuine, original genius, who has filled me with admiration and respect for 43 years !!!!!
He's also been a huge influence on my song writing too.
Sadly not enough of an influence to inspire me to write anything remotely up to Lou's standard.
onicaraps ymmat - Rip
If only if only if only...
srednuas selrahc - Love Lou and Jack! They're making Berlin 2 as we speak!!
lrak liryc - Son deuxième chef d'œuvre . La sensualité dans le désespoir. Une histoire d'amour profondément mélancolique. Plus la dream team sur cet album. Musiciens et ingénieurs du son.
regeurk retep trebla - The Berlin Album is one of Lou's best.
sekciw nhoj - A sad day indeed.
Brilliant Album, made in Londoner.
Known as the most depressing record ever made when it was released.
As with Leonard Cohen, I don't find Lou's material depresses me or makes me feel down.
It fascinates, inspires, and also gives deep insights from someone's personal experience of how crap some people's lives are.
enryb tnecniv - Lou Reed's best album...RIP Jack and Lou
newol eronel - Wow, on Monday it'll be a year since Lou's passing, yet it feels like it was only yesterday. This week Duran Duran posted a video of their version of 'A Perfect Day' which reminded me of the upcoming memorial day. If you haven't heard it, check it out. Lou loved it. Now, this YouTube clip. All I can say is heaven's got an awesome rock band. RIP Lou and Jack.
namkrow ymerej - Without hesitation I would say that the Berlin album was a true masterpiece, Lou's best album far and away in my opinion. I had no idea Jack Bruce was part of that magic.
ztiwohcals leoj - "In the white room, with black curtains..." RIP Jack Bruce!!
yoccm yeksihw lerak - Brilliant Tribute from one legend to another.
dnartreb dnamron - masterpiece album

hsur ecnahc - How is he NOT in there already? The RRHoF is crap
noynik l assilem - Voted. I'm horrified at the bands ahead of him in percentage of votes.
aít oj - Lou, I miss you man. You don't need any votes you are the only and one rock and roll heart.
nehctak lb - Lou would not want to be part of this.
droffats ynohtna - 90% of the artists in the list wouldn't exist without Lou Reed's influence. In his work he invented most of the genres the bands above him in the list play including punk, New Wave, Glam rock, etc. He is the most cited musical influence in Rock and Roll history, For him to not already be in the hall of fame is a crime.
nebuoh neorej - Lou Reed is more of a rock & roll institute than this whole fcking hall of fame.
It's an insult that he wasn't inducted twenty years earlier. So why even bother now?
nielreieb giarc - Lou is too cool for the lame ass Rock & Roll hall of fame
tsrod nav trab - if lou ain't innit allready it ain't worth shit xxx

Lou Reed: We stumbled upon this Transformer sweater vest in a box in Lou's storage space alongside old fan mail. Admittedly the color scheme is, let's kindly say, too festive? But the remarkable part is that all the red yarn was knit into the sweater by hand. So hats off to whoever put this together.Comments:
gninnal cire - I would wear that proudly.
asil aititeal - and hats off to Lou who took time and attention to keep what had been sent to him. Greathearted Lou.
yug trebla - I've been a Lou Reed fan since I was about 11 or 12 years old. I used to have all the vinyl albums, now I have all the cds. I'm probably one of the biggest Lou Reed fans. I listen to a lot of other music, but there's no music like Lou Reed music. To me, he was a genius.
hêira leirbag - shut up and take my bananas
ppel nhoj - Too festive? I would proudly wear it each and every Christmas day!
sihprom yrrej - It looks like a Warhol silkscreen
alotaps oirasor - "Now, we're comin' out.
Out of our closets.
Out on the streets."
znerol asil - I would TOTALLY wear that...AND be smug about it!
noseihtam tak - I'm sitting here with the artist, Mary Adams, who knitted this beautiful sweater. I'll pass you over to her: Hello - this is Mary. I'm amazed - in fact overwhelmed - I never knew that Lou had this sweater. In 1979 I was living in New York and sold sweaters under the label Wild Thing through Capezio's. They often put one of my sweaters in the window. One week this was the one they chose - the red and green multiple Transformer (my apologies for the 'overly festive' colours - but you do get a nice flare around the edges when you use bright complementary colours) and I thought I should let Lou know. The next time I went into Capezio's they were all very excited and told me Lou Reed had come into the store to see the sweater. Until today I never knew he actually bought it. And certainly had no idea he had kept it. I am honoured and deeply moved.
ttoille trebor - Loved Lou. Saw him twice in Sydney. Greatgigs and he wasn't too out of it. Definitely still play all the vinyl and nothing beats the intro to Sweet Jane. Some may say nothing beats Sweet Jane!
hcaor k yrrek - Love it - going to share on KNITknitUSA ... thx LR
snilloc yeldarb map - This whole sweater vest was hand knitted. Great work !
miehneppo .a lyrehc - I didnt know Lou had died as I think I was FB 'unfreinded' a few years ago...It is a nice sweater...I think such proceeds should go to a cause he would approve of or the writer's scholarship fund in Syracuse...I have only gratitude to Lou and Laurie for making my
last west village days bearable and wonderous...And also for their visibility in NYC on topics that truly mattered...stepping up to the plate when asked to do so...Lou and Meamie the Baby Dragon blog near saved my life at the worst of times....oh no you are not gone.... Forever live in the hearts of those who you touched...what a wonderful and illustrious life...just to the end and tbc...I cant say goodbye it just seems wrong...Lou was like the wind...lol...made me smile...made NYC the iconic place it is today...feels a bit emptier hope the legend survives our times...kidcola 61

Lou Reed: "I first met Jimmy Scott through the remarkable songwriter Doc Pomus. I'd heard about him for many years. At the gathering after Doc's passing Jimmy sang. He has the voice of an angel and can break your heart. He did that day and many others.I've heard and even sung with Jimmy many times since then. Here is the singer's singer if labels mean any thing. Listening to Jimmy is like having a performing heart. The experience of life and the art of expression sing through Jimmy and make us partners in his incredible passion. I love him and I never want to say goodbye. When the song stops with Jimmy's last note we're back in the world as it was. Not quite so pretty, not quite so passionate. And we can only wait for Jimmy to sing again and take us that little bit higher." Lou was very vocal about championing Jimmy Scott, always quick to name him as one of this favorite singers when the topic arose. If you'd ever listened to Lou's New York Shuffle, there's a good chance you've heard him sing Jimmy's praises. This photo of Jimmy, Lou, Laurie, Antony, David, and Bette still hangs in Lou's apartment, framed. Here are a few video selections to enjoy as we remember Jimmy Scott today. Jimmy sings backup on Power and Glory live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zP6GQ6rYi8 Jimmy's scene from the end of Twin Peaks: http://youtu.be/rIXPG8NR5iI?t=36s Lou on Jimmy (with unfortunate German voice-over translation) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mITxSzNRxLE Jimmy's rendition of "I'm Afraid the Masquerade Is Over" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7g9FOgh5V2MComments:
llesut ailÉ - This page makes me think Lou is still alive
nesredep eilrahc samoht - his Twin Peaks performance is the most wonderdul thing I've ever seen on film
anehta aivlys - London 1992 Magic and Loss- Jimmy performed with Lou, Mike Rathke, Rob Wasserman and Michael Blair. We all loved Jimmy. He was so gentle and kind to me during a difficult time. In particular I recall that Jimmy never wanted to say goodbye. One moment he would be there smiling sweetly, then in the next moment he would simply be gone.
shcuf red anitteb - Great picture with lovely artists
aít oj - Cool guys! Love you Lou wherever you are
hcavon nosirrah ynnep - A lot of talent in that group!!
llewor wehttam - I think I saw him with Lou on stage at Hammersmith in 199?. He sang on magic and loss.
noslen yram - Thank you for introducing me to Jimmy Scott. His voice and artistry are amazing. I will be listening to him for a long time!

reltub leahcim - I remember sitting behind Jimmy Scott's wife at a Lou concert in NY. His wife turns to me and hands me her camcorder and asks me to film Jimmy's performance. It was quite an honor. And I remember Lou looking at me from the stage, he must have thought who is this guy with the camera.

nosnikliw sbab - Does Sister Ray Enterprises need any other archival material? I worked for Lou in early -mid 70s.
hcsrih yerffej - ...RIP... When Lou passed last year, on my 59th birthday, part of me left as well... You were wonderful, Lou...
rellim ttam - "You should have two radios. In case one gets broken." - Lou Reed
yesoh o luap - I had a mini break down when I heard the news. I was 20 days into fixing up a new apartment for my growing family when I heard that he had passed. Among the open paint cans and drop clothes, I instantly started having a tear filled breakdown. Once I got control of myself I called my big brother, who had introduced my to Lou's music in grade school. He had not heard the news either. This was the saddest day I can remember in recent years.Truly heart broken. In short... this mans music made me want to be a musician when I was a kid and helped me figure out how to play by learning and appreciating his music. The dynamics are unbeatable and the truth and honesty in his music is like no other. I wish I had some money to pick up something from his collection but I do not. Hopefully some of it goes to working musicians who can use it and channel some of what they learned about music from this incredible man. Good luck. And thank you for filling my formidable years with something I could relate to and other things I could only dream about relating to. Love you man. Miss you. Thank you for all the memories. And thank you for all the notes.
namela xela - We miss you so much Lou
enyap nek - Garage sale. I'm more interested in the music vaults. I want to hear more Lou. I hope Laurie is well.

onarrac odraccir - made him a sterling silver guitar slide with a N.S.W. police button on the top.and 3 silver plectrums wheh he toured Sydney @ the State Theatre..hope he enjoyed them..
anerotyam aividlav xela - Crap that means I will have to
Sell a kidney to be able to afford something from him specially on eBay it's great but then again Lou reed needs a mini museum or maybe if the Jewish museum in NYC can dedicate a gallery for his music and side projects his legacy will be preserve better
shcuf red anitteb - :( this is so final.

Lou Reed: We thought it'd be cool to share a photograph of one of the more "mythical" artifacts of Lou and the VU. Lou mentioned this in an interview a while back (Q Magazine in 1996, I think), that he'd recently unearthed a demo he had mailed to himself in 1965, the reason for which is known as "the poor man's copyright." In classic Lou style, he had this to say about the discovery: "I'm not going to listen to it. I don't want to hear these things any more." Well, here's what it looks like. And no, we haven't opened it.Comments:
sniktaw hsoj - For the love of Lou, open it, rip it, and release it! If you love something, set it free...
llah eneg - As a museum collections manager, I have to vote for not opening it. If Lou kept it unopened that long then that is how it should remain (in my opinion) to maintain the integrity of the piece. Its a historical document.
dleifsnam kcin - This is from a time when people didn't live in an 'open it open it' throwaway live forever Internet obsessed low morality loveless greedy selfish iphone induced zombie world. Keep it shut, hide it from the selfish Facebook generation and hope the world returns to better times where people like a young Lou Reed would want to live and be inspired 😎 Peace Out.
daehetihw evad - Forward it on to me ...i wont open it either ...i promise ;)
samoht semaj - That`s the problem, some folks just don`t get the beauty of mystery.
rehsif kram - Leave as is
rootsap eoj - Can't hurt Lou anymore. The man is dead. Open it.
ffo lrac - Do not open it. Some secrets are better off left unknown. Robert the poor mans copyright is what many musicians and other artists do to prove they made a work at a certain date. By having the postmark on the sealed document, it shows that you wrote and recorded this song at this date-in case someone else comes along and tries to claim rights to your work.
odnoradla asal isop - openopenopenopen
yhaclum nitram - I've never been so torn on my opinion. Preserve it as lou did. Or open to share with the world. What does his wife Laurie think? What if it contains the answer to the meaning of life?! Wait, maybe that IS the answer.
neeuqcam anohr - Don't open it. Ever. 💙💙💙💙
arevir leinad - keep it underground, v.u,
sekciw nhoj - Lou is one of my top three Music icons and I was shocked and gutted when he died.
He'd been an influence on me since I was 14, I'm now 55!!!!!
My immediate reaction was to fly to New York which I did as soon after his death as I could.
I walked the streets he sang about, and to the sites if not the places, of which he sang.
But that still wasn't enough.
Being a musician and song writer I did what Lou would have down and put all of my thoughts and feelings about Lou into a song.
I've written dozens of songs which people tell me are ok and which get radio plays, but for this song I wanted Lou in there with me, so I used the riff for 'Sweet Jane' as the intro' and as the chords behind the melody for the chorus.
At some considerable expense, I then spent three days professionally recording it.
It was done, my tribute to the great man.
Being honest I wrote to Sony, telling them what I'd done. Saying I wasn't expecting to make anything from it, but if I did, I'd happily sign over a share to them. Big mistake!!!!!!
They wanted the recording, the lyrics everything, then I heard nothing for weeks.
I contacted them again and got an e mail back by return saying I couldn't use it, and if I did etc.
I don't believe they even listened to it.
Anyway, have re written intro, and written a brand new chorus.
Also spent another two long days in the Studio recording it again.
Good news is, we're just on the final mix, and I'm then gonna post it everywhere I can think of.
I think it's ok, but it may well not be good enough to do the great man justice.
The important thing is it's got my heart and soul in it and it's the best I can do.
Hopefully it may spur other writers to write better songs about a legend I'm determined we will not forget.
Watch this space over the next two to three weeks!!!!!!!
doowruh trawets - Lou showed me that in the office a couple of years ago!
ttod nayrb - Don't open it. Lou didn't want it opened.
illaroc oibaf - It's a very nice thing. Lou Reed it's a continue revelation.. Is the best in every time of life.. also post.m... fantastic record, fantastic artwork.. In this packaging, it's almost a "ready made" (Duchamp). So rare good idea.. And the name of this production, is a second cleverness..
relwot luap - Well, if it's opened, the claim to copyright is lost.
hguanavac ennaul adaj - Reminds me of the banana .. Peel it ? I say keep the peel on . That is just wonderful !
ddot sinned - Even his shit was gold so let's hear it
esor werdna - I use to do the poor man copyright until I realised that no one would ever want to steel the shit I write and record.
namyar nairb - Send it to me. I will take good care of it.

Lou Reed: Dick Wagner played guitar in Lou's band alongside Steve Hunter in 1973, appearing on Berlin and Rock and Roll Animal. Dick and Steve formed a formidable guitar duo that many fans considered to be the finest in Lou's history. (No disrespect to Robert Quine who was amazing in his own right.) Dick passed away this morning so we wanted to share a choice clip from the 1973 tour. Here's a recording of Sister Ray from Glasgow on September 24, 1973.Comments:
