I hiked up the mountain Sunday morning and was sitting on a rock overlooking the city when a friend texted me that he had died. Really loved him and had not followed his liver transplant story so for me it was pretty shocking and sad.

His last recording was the song "Wanderlust" with the band Metric. Their show last year at Radio City was the one and only time I saw him perform live, it was his last time doing so in NYC, and maybe ever.

One of the best songs of 2012, too.

Yes, we get it. U2 likes Lou Reed. Not enough to know that Transformer isn't a Velvet Underground album though.

I'm sure this hit Bono pretty hard
I hope he's okay.

Surely you know that U2.com content isn't directly written by the band, right?

And anyways, in the actual quote Bono, I think it is, calls it Reed's best work..some of which, as I understand it, was written, recorded and even played live by Velvet Underground

Five years later and U2.com hasn't improved at all. Like, I figured at some point they'd at least consider making a move towards competence in such a digital-heavy culture. This band is so passionate about relevance and yet seems to have no fucking clue how the Internet even works.

I was kidding, having a go at U2 for their website's incompetence.

And no, Bono doesn't say that Transformer is Lou Reed's best work in the article. He uses puns and references to his work ("transformation", "magic and loss") to make a poetic statement about his music in general.

Imagine the levels of snippetry if U2 was in the middle of a tour right now.

Man, I couldn't really process the death until I got Boner's thoughts on it. I have closure now.

Bono's thoughts on Lou Reed from like 20 years ago. Even better. He's probably too emotional to articulate that well right now. Poor Bono.
