Lou Reed: From the archive: Any idea who drew this? We came across this illustration in a box without anything to identify where or whom it came from. Anyone out there know who the artist is?Comments:
Levi Edwards - I am... Funny none of you like it, Lou told me himself it was one of his favorites, BECAUSE it looked like Joe Camel.
Jim Murdie - It's horrible, makes him look like Joe Camel.
Rob Guthrie - It's a nice caricature, and it's actually a very good one regardless of what these two "critics" think. I have shared it on the International Society of Caricature Artists private page to see if I can track down the artist for you. Thousands of my colleagues live there...
Rosario Spatola - This is what Lou Reed would look like if he was guest on The Flintstones. Imagine that, Lou Reed running through I Love You, Suzanne on that show--the picture screams New Sensations to me.
Wolf Juelicher - maybe its after he is waiting for is men,with 26 dollars in his hand...
Michael Verità - I don't know but it's fucking awful.
Michael John Simpson - Almost looks like Al Hirschfeld
Tony O'Leary - When was Lou in 'Planet Of The Apes'??? ;)
Michael Erickson - Horrible? I think it is wonderful. So what if it reminds you of Joe Camel - Lou wasn't exactly the cleanest cat in the music business.
Jamie Shires - That's not lou.its an insult..
Sebastian Reiche - it looked`s like joe camel?
Rob Guthrie - Eric Palma drew that. Told ya, I have "connections" lol
Pierpaolo Bannera Fragale - Mitico Lou sarà sempre un mio rimpianto non essere stato a un tuo concerto
Valerie Ward - Andy Warhol? I miss Lou
Chris Shelsky - It was drawn by hirshfield
Duane Lebourdais - it's from rolling stone... don;t know the artist
Brant Withers - It looks a little like Robert Risko's work, but doesn't seem to be up to his typical level of quality.
Alan Darroch - Looks like a young Mo Szyslak.. 😎
Lawrence Stallard - Hirschfeldt. Deffo.
Time Traveller - i do not particularely like this one. there are better carricatures of lou. this one comes along like a bus or a train. lou, to me. was a roadster. ;)

Lou Reed: The finale from a tribute concert two days ago organized by Lou's good friend and former band member Kevin Hearn.Comments:
Michael Erickson - Damn.. I was just listening to part of this album and also Metal Machine Music, totally forgot that Lou had passed away earlier last fall. He is the most searched "Lou" person on the internet except the French Kings Louis XIII, XV and XVI. That says a lot seeing as how his primary career arc was several decades before the popular implementation of the internet.
Vesna Nikolic - Wonderful people
Arne Habenicht - here is in my opinion the best performance of this song I know, great solo from Mike, I miss you Lou http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jk0SsuZKQ58
Jonathan Mitchell - Always nice to hear Fernando play that bass line.
Jean Aase - Aaaaahhhhhh. Not Lou, but still ...
Bruce Bauer - Excellent, but I wonder whose decision it was to be politically correct by dropping the phrase that venerated black back up singers?
Thomas Wolff - The first time I ever heard the phrase "giving head" was in Walk on the Wild Side. It's amazing that they ever played that song on AM radio in the '60's. An while this is a lovely tribute what's missing is Lou's control and understate emotion. I miss you.
Stewart Stewie Robertson - I don't know - Was lucky enough to see Lou 3 times - not sure I like this . Tribute or not - think I'll listen to RocknRoll Animal
Sal Fernandez - Must be difficult for bass player Fernando without his sidekick and band leader Lou !! Nice job
Catherine Marples - MOST ENJOYABLE "
Terri Santavy - love that bass slide, miss LOu
Pedro Rafael Guerrero Rivas - full of happy shine people.
Tom Ziniti - Bought it in 1970 something. Still listen to it. Love Lou a lot! Also love "Looking for Love" on "The Bells."
Griselda Porta - hermoso Lou Reed!!!
Peter Holt - Without Lou Reed Music Will Now Change, And That's What Time Does, But Lou Reed Certainly Changed Our Times. God Bless Mate.
Malcolm Rudd - Great version,can't wait to hear the rest of the concert, sad that Lou is not with us!
Vincent Zaleski - A fantastic tribute-but it really hit home-Lou is gone.
Isabel Lança - Wonderful : Thank you :)
Dragan Gligora - Besmrtna "Wlk on the wild side"
Ángel Jerónimo García Navas - Tu, turú, turú, turú, tuturutú...

Lou Reed: "Take me for what I am a star newly emerging" Happy birthday Lou. From your friends, family, and fans. We thought today would be a good day to announce that the Lou Reed Archive is currently a work in progress. There are stacks upon stacks of boxes, full of hundreds of tapes, photographs, artwork, hard drives, letters, and more that will be transferred, cataloged, and assembled into an incredible archive. It's a long road ahead and we'll be sharing our progress along the way right here on the Lou Reed facebook and twitter pages so stay tuned!Comments:
Jo Tia - We miss you sweet Lou
Jo Tia - Today I'm going to listen again Magic and Loss (full!!!!) I will look at the stars Lou! Will you see me?
Marie Claire Dacquet - Waiting for it. Photo taken in Berlin Nov 3, 2013
Eric Bourdon - he came in my youth and show me a wonderful and nasty world. Bad influence but good trip. Maybe i was too young but it was really a great travel in my mind. Now I m sane, conscious wise and alive. It's the hell he shows me that made the flowers i see today.
David Messier - Miss you Lou, but forever grateful for how your music has shaped my life.
Carla Marchesan - Lou Reed was a brave knight in shining leather armour, who, with his sharp guitar and razor sharp tongue, slashed through the fabric of social conventions to reveal the lives less ordinary of those on the wild side of life. He championed the cause of closet and underground dwellers. May his legacy and fighting spirit never be forgotten. PS. I'd love to volunteer my holidays to the Archive any time, I'm a professional librarian.
Ray Caurant - Check out this video on YouTube:
Sent from my iPhone 5
Bobbie Smith - Play you everyday, songs live on. You still are the best. Put a brick on Flagler ave new Smyrna beach where you can party with us, says Lou reed perfect day, wildchild. Hope your in fla with us. Happy birthday coney island baby. Thanks guys))). Bananas. Me. Lou reed and vu)))
Babs Wilkinson - Oh my...have been shifting through boxes of my years on the road with Lou in 73-74-75...what memories!!
Wayne Mehl - Some lives continue to amplify after the physical form has passed. Mozart was not as well know in his lifetime as he is now. Looking forward to the archive. Future generations will be able to "discover" Lou in their own context.
Terry Adams - Although he's gone, his voice lives on.
Serge Julien - I declare March 2nd Lou Reed Day! Though I miss you, I can still feel the energy through your work. Happy birthday again Lou!
Pat Murphy Martin - Spent the evening playing nothing but Lou last night in celebration!
Carolyn McCanna - Happy Birthday Lou, You are deeply missed. Hopefully Hal Willner, Laurie, Merrill (Lou's sister) and his former bandmates are all a part of going through Lou's personal collection of his work. The people who knew him the best. Even having John Cale look at some of the stuff would be really nice too.
Patricia Carman - in Argentina we can't buy Lou's Cd...please take care of that
Dean Duluoz - Magic and loss... Lou, you save my life, one more time... I miss you!!!
Eric Finkelman - Our lives were saved by your 'Rock-N -Roll' ... Thanks Lou! (Where ever you are) ... I can't wait for the archives ... Your 15 minutes will never end...
Anthony Sallis - "Cos deep down inside, I've got a rock and roll heart"

Stuart Inman - Fuck, gonna cry again.
Susan Ciccantelli - beautiful. thank you, Jeremy Shatan. I think you nailed it - Lou's message, delivered in the life he lived: "don't believe what you read, don't believe what people say about you, hone your internal compass and let it guide you."

Vladislav Hristov - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgR4KBTlXus
Brian Blank - I saw Lou coming out of a bookstore in the village back in the '80's. Without saying a word, he gave me a look that said: "If you recognize me or say hello, I'll bite your f*cking head off." So...wisely, I said nothing. :-)
Paula Cunha - I didn't stop crying since he died!
Elena Berton - Transfomer arrived this morning. I feel blessed,its like Lou is sitting next to me, while I am looking at this amazing collection of pictures,my heart his filled with sadness, and I can't hold my tears.Forever you will be in my heart <3
John Heppenstall - Top article mate, can relate to all of that. As my brother Glynn said after we first heard Lulu: "Maybe his music's not meant for everyone, but everyone should experience it."
Bat-zone Rui Coelho - Miss this great artist who gave a lot will pop rock music ...
Istardust Queen - Magic and loss...
Simon Gratton - He is and was a one of a kind. He was like the trinity. Lou was Jesus, Bowie is god and Iggy was like God or Jesus on smack. I used to think they were one person, three distinct characters. I wasn't serious but I'm sure you all get my point??
Sonja Kovacev - https://www.facebook.com/events/218440211668839/?hc_location=stream
Andrew Pappas - It's just a perfect day to be standing on a corner waiting for my man and get ready to rock and roll...a true creative force and talent is gone!
Ed Wagemann - Who is posting these things on Lou Reed's facebook page??? I always thought it was Lou himself who was posting. Now that he has passed I have to wonder who is posting these things. Had he ever posted things here or was there always someone else posting for him?

Jason Paskowitz - Finally, Rolling Stone has a cover without some retarded shithead rapper on it.
Adam Lipson - GOODBYE LOU REED !!
Over the past several weeks, I’ve read Lou Reed’s obit in The New York Times, one from his Laurie Anderson (his wife of 21 years) and a poignant tribute written by Patti Smith in this week’s New Yorker magazine.
I never met Lou Reed in person, but I felt a strong connection to him.
I was raised in Greenwich Village, graduating high school in 1979. Lou Reed, like so many other artists, was a resident of Greenwich Village. We all knew who he was. He was important. He wrote seminal and groundbreaking music in the 1960’s that would later define the punk and new wave music I would hear at CBGB’s during my high school years. Just as Bob Dylan sat at the intersection of Folk and Rock, Lou Reed sat at the intersection of Rock and Punk. His work would shape the music of the next decade. He was important.
He sat at Max’s Kansas City as a peer to Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Edie Sedgwick and so many others. He created at the Invention Factory. He harbored a secret admiration for Bob Dylan who he knew through Edie Sedgwick. His music, which defined much of New York’s New Wave and Punk era, had little lead guitar, politically and socially charged lyrics and mirrored the fabric of New York society. Lou was New York and New York was Lou.
I attended New York’s Stuyvesant High School. On most days, my walk to and from school would take me down Mercer Street past “The Bottom Line.” For those who don’t know, “The Bottom Line” was a small music venue that could seat roughly 200 people (legally). It was considered to be the premier small music club in the United States during the 1970’s and 1980’s. Artists would release new albums and record producers would sit in the front row and triage who they had to sign to a record deal and who would not get signed. For most of us music lovers, it was an incredible venue to hear great music, but it was also part of Greenwich Village.
The Bottom Line was a special place, I believe, for Lou Reed as well. When Lou wasn’t touring during the late 1970’s, he would use the Bottom Line as his performance home. If you wanted to see Lou, you had to go to the Bottom Line. For top acts like Springsteen, Costelllo, Waits, Ramones and others, the Bottom Line would generally have a late show and an early show. The early show would play from 7:30 – 10:00PM. The late show was supposed to play from 11:00 till as late as closing – but not for Lou. During the Fall of 1978 and the Spring of 1979, while in high school, I attended two of Lou’s late shows at the Bottom Line.
For us “MUSIC LOVERS”, we have three, four or five shows that we will never forget. For me, it’s Neil Young at Madison Square Garden in 1979, Elvis Costello at the Palladium in 1979, Bruce Springsteen in Hartford in 1978 and the two Lou Reed Shows at the Bottom Line in 1978 and 1979.
Both shows were similar. Lou came out relatively promptly at 11:15PM. Lou’s lyrics were spoken and not sung. They were raw, truthful and sarcastic. We heard him sing “New York Conversation”, a parody of New York’s elite gossiping about one another. We heard “Perfect Day” which sarcastically pokes fun at love ballads. We heard him cry out “When I’m Closing in on Death” during his rendition of “Heroine”. We heard “Rock and Roll”, a song about how the advent of New York City FM rock radio saved a girl’s life (referring to WNEW). He played for countless hours. He wasn’t just a musician. He was a social poet and an impressionist artist. He painted our New York society in spoken music with a Stratocaster.
I remember walking out of the club at 5:45AM for both shows onto the corner of Mercer and 4th Streets and being startled by the daylight. I would never forget those shows.
Two years later while watching TV, I saw images of my Greenwich Village neighborhood set to Lou Reed’s “Take A Walk on the Wild Side.” At the end of the one minute TV spot, Lou Reed appeared on a stationary Honda Scooter in front of the Bottom Line. He said only five words…..”HEY….DON’T SETTLE FOR WALKING.” It was his only TV ad. While I never imagined Lou doing a TV advertisement, this one seemed perfect. It was his New York, it was his music, it was his punk rockers, it was his The Bottom Line. It was Lou.
(It’s on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkXxFCu7kPI).
More than 10 years later, Lou Reed released his greatest solo album entitled (what else?) “New York.” “New York” was a socially relevant depiction of New York City in the late 1980’s that spoke to its poverty, prostitution, pollution and prejudice. The album was a commercial success and was nominated for the Grammy for Best Album. I remember watching the Grammy Awards with all of the musicians lobbying for their albums and hearing Lou say “I’ll never win.” He was right. We all knew it, but there was an amazing sense of victory in the nomination of this important album. This was not just his victory. It was a victory for many of us from the old neighborhood. Seven years later he would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Velvet Underground.
Over the past several years, I’ve looked on the web every week to see if Lou Reed is playing anywhere locally. I haven’t seen him since 1979. When I heard the news of his death, I was saddened because his music (and his words) meant so much to me. I was also selfishly saddened that I will never get to see him perform again.
Rita Santa-Rita - One week later and I still can't believe he's gone.. he'll never be forgotten, that's for sure
Rocio Adriana Lopez - I'm buying the fuck out of this issue when I get the chance.
Dustin Demoss - The only way that POS Ragazine will get so much as a glance from me. We miss you, Lou.
Josiah Miller - So it looks like I'm actually buying an issue of Rolling Stone.
Emilio Martínez - I read what Laurie Anderson said to Rolling Stone, it was incredible and really emotive. I think there are few people who have made an impact in music and in the world like Lou did, he's a legend and his legacy and music stay forever. Thank you for everything, Lou.
Giuseppe Luciano - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uBkJSbQO0
Patrick Abell - Lou Reed on the cover, that's great. Was Miley Cyrus too busy to talk to you guys this month?
Gregory Patalano - Best thing to be on that RAG for years
Michael Goglia - Don't buy this crap. Lou is being interviewed by Lester Bangs for the next issue of Creem as we speak.
Armand Marc Hazan - Finally the Rolling Stone has on the cover a REAL musician and not a terrorist, or some wannabe "musician"!!!
Matthew Richard Laurier - Fuck RIP More like Return If Possible... :)
Susan Edrington - Not wild about Rolling Stone, but Lou looks cool on any cover. I'm sorry we lost him and that his wife lost him. He was a treasure. Blessings.....
Kimberly Birkett - So glad they choose Lou Reed for the cover! :-) <3

Laura Leone - Warhol is the ONLY one who can do the banana peel justice for Lou...sorry.

Lou Reed: Morrissey pays tribute to Lou by releasing a cover of “Satellite of Love” on Nov 29. The track was recorded at Moz’s 2011 show at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas.
Chris Loveman - This isn't the place for anti-Morrissey comments; he's making a tribute.
James Brightman - It's a very good cover. Also, he's not doing it for the money, otherwise, don't you think he would have reformed The Smiths instead?
Alie Moore - Hold on, listen to the song before bitching.
Morrissey actually helped Lou out by gretting him in the line up for a festival and is a true fan.
He hardly needs to improve his fame when his book is selling well and is all over the gaff.
Some people are full of crap.
Now I will say it could look like band wagon jumping BUT he covered the song Two years ago.
So I would give him the benefit of the doubt
Like him or hate him Morrissey has earned his place in music history.
The haters Will hate, the lovers Will love and rest will tap dance as they will.
Matt Adams - Morrissey loved and respected Lou Reed. He is paying tribute to someone who meant a great deal to him and inspired him greatly. There's no need for negative comments. Quite simply if you don't like him then don't buy it.
Christopher J Cole - The level of animosity towards Morrissey here is disturbing. All he has done is to release a tribute to a seminal musician. It is a show of respect from one music icon to another. I could give two shits if you like Morrissey or not. But when you imply he lacks talent, simply because you don't care for his music, it makes you look incredibly feeble-minded.
Marcos David Cukierkorn - http://true-to-you.net/morrissey_news_131027_01
Donna Scalzitti - I love Morrissey. One of my favorite singers of all time. He absolutely did not do anything for money or publicity. He never bought into the whole MTV thing or anything like that. He may be a bit eccentric, but he's as genuine as they come when it comes to his music!!!!
Selena Ann Wood - idol to idol. love it.
Matt Adams - The money goes to Lou Reed's estate. Morrissey is not cashing in, he is paying tribute. For god sake.
Jennie Jareth - Lou would love it
Margaret Dennis - Nicely done. Great tribute to a great musician.
John Byron - Great cover, lovely tribute.
Jacio Truzzi - Such a brilliant cover, one of the best!
Bettina Netri - Grande Morrissey !!!
Jason Down - Moz your the best. Thank you for doing this.
Daniel Peirson - Beautiful cover of a great song
Ana Cláudia Amorim - 2 idols combined

Lou Reed: Spectrum Culture revisits Lou Reed's Ecstasy. "Reed delivers the type of off-the-cuff interplay that is reserved for true legends, the type of tracks that further revealed the character of an idol, innovator and antihero." http://bit.ly/1dmqRvtComments:
Mirko-Daniel Varjosaari - Like a Possum <3.. Ecstasy's a very underrated, even misunderstood album, and one of his very best in my opinion.
Jackie Fate - Baton Rouge gets me all the time
Bo Smith - Spectacular album...and the only tour on which I was ever able to see Lou. It was a truly magical experience.
Peter Sprangers - his last truly great album
Jane Gibbs - Lying here in bed reading this and lookin at the Ecstasy Tour poster I somehow managed to beg or steal in Edinburgh on my wall and thinking how lucky am I to have grown with this guy's music and poetry for 40+ years of my life.
Billy Curry - This is one of Lou's Greatest Albums....Me?....I think its up there with Street Hassle
Rustle Wait - Lou whines and rages about Sylvia's fidelity. For an hour. In song. Still better than Mistrial.
Mark The-k - One of the best five Lou Reed albums ever!
Dan Eastgate - One of my favorites. Thank You Lou.
Scott Baker - This album is incredible....
Jussi Karjalainen - Great cover art!
Roger Augustus - i remember the album cover with Lou reading "Big Uns" he inspired me to do many things, some of which are not particularly good for you. But I will never be the same...and that's what rock and roll is all about.
Gerardo Michlig - His best album since the 70's
Gina Smothers DiMartino - An amazing musical experience, as always with Mr. Reed.
Duncan Wood - Didn't get to see him as much as i wanted to, '84 Brixton and Manchester '92, but an awesome stage presence that told you that you were in the same room as a master!! Right up there with Bowie. miss ya Lou.x
Duncan Wood - Yeah man! 'New York' and 'Coney island baby' two works of immense quality guitar play. x
David Houghton - Agree with Mirko Like A Possum my favourite Lou Reed track - ever !
Cheryl Plumleigh - One of my favorite albums. In Derek Staples write up on "ECSTASY", 2 things hit me. Cover shot was taken by Lou Reed "in a moment of pure rawness...the wisdom that is only available to those who have fought to survive themselves." The t-shirt with this picture says DON'T BE AFRAID on the back while the multi-face T has tour cities listed on back. Mr. Staples also brings up the "issues of his former relationships" on this album may have come about due to his public association with Laurie Anderson, his future wife (and best friend). Such a beautifully crafted outpouring from Mr. Reed's heart.
Gabriel Fernandez - Always put the title track on repeat whenever I want to get in a trance and create art.
Jules Standen - Amazing sounding record.
Marlene Rufus Holmes - I think we should let him die.

Hughe Harrison - Wish I could be there
Monty Smith - For those of you who can’t attend: I went during the first hour. It’s a beautiful day here in NYC, and the gathering is in a very nice open courtyard at Lincoln Center, by a large reflecting pool. Lou’s music is playing on a really clean, clear, sound system. People were wandering in and out. Some are stopping to listen only for a song or two. Most, of course, are staying longer. Some are dancing, some are singing, some are sitting still, some are watching, some have their eyes closed. Young, old, men, women, children. Business suits, bluejeans, leather…. Everything you’d expect. Nicely done. R.I.P. Lou.
Lois Langevin-King - RIP Lou Reed. I honor your works & your music. Much light & love to your family and to your soul's journey. ❤️
