RIP. Can't believe that. Was lucky enough to have seen him at MSG.

Well, this is quite shocking. Rest in Peace, Lou.

I haven't been this upset over a celebrity death since Alex Chilton passed. Part of the reason I had the guts to start recording music was because of how amazing VU sounded with no real expertise involved. I make my guitar tones with White Light/White Heat in mind. Their self titled has been there for me on many, many lonely nights.

Bye, Lou.

No offense, but didn't he just have a liver transplant recently? I don't think I have heard an update on his health since, but I wasn't exactly shocked by the news.

not that shocking, if any one knows his medical history

I was very lucky to see several, probably over a dozen live shows in club venues
in the 80s, probably caught some in the 70s too, a complete and total artist. the shows were uneven, ranging from very good to the heights of brilliance

some of the dates were at the Roxy on Sunset in Hollywood. They would do two shows a night, the second was to start at 10:30, he came on about 11, was supposed to stop around 12 - 12:30. He said he would play as long as we stayed. He was still going a little before 3 am. My friends were yelling at me to leave (I drove, fuck em), they told me he was back on the needle. He was, but the magic was there and not lost until today.

Is that Metallica collabo his last recorded output? Not that it diminishes him in any way, it's just kinda like Orson Welles' final performance being in Transformers.

He loved it, though, and the project seemed to make him so very happy.

Search 'Sunday Morning' on YouTube, and The Velvet Underground is the sixth result after several videos for fucking Maroon 5 and a (admittedly not terrible) No Doubt song.
