Happy Music Monday! The unexpected death of Lou Reed on Sunday morning was the kind of thing that Scott couldn't just ignore. Next week, you'll see the Music Monday he planned to run. This week? A very quick farewell to the grandfather of everything we consider to be modern rock.
When Magic & Loss was released, I remember an interview with where someone suggested that this album would be the best epitaph Lou Reed could ever want. Lou snidely answered that when he died, everyone would play "Walk On The Wild Side" all day. In his honor, you're not going to find that radio hit in the Music Monday today. Instead, you'll find all the great stuff he did that the radio never played. Maybe you'll prefer it too. I sure do.
We'll all say our goodbyes after the jump.
