March 2: The late Lou Reed was born in 1942 – Here playing Bob Dylan’s Foot of Pride

The wonderful Lou Reed was born March 2nd in 1942. We miss him.

Lewis Allan “Lou” Reed (born March 2, 1942, died October 27, 2013) was an American rock musician, songwriter, photographer and music legend. He is best known as guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of The Velvet Underground, and for his solo career, which spanned several decades. Though the Velvet Underground were a commercial failure in the late 1960s, the group has gained a considerable cult following in the years since its demise and has gone on to become one of the most widely cited and influential bands of the era. As the Velvet Underground’s principal songwriter, Reed wrote about subjects of personal experience that rarely had been examined so openly in rock and roll, including sexuality and drug culture.

  1. This tune is among my best Dylan covers ever.

    I do not know how Dylan and Reed saw each other. Their music was so different that their lines did not cross very often. On the other hand Bowie who was also very different covered Dylan a lot.

    Lou Reed makes a powerful performance. R.I.P Lou, you were one of the gratetest.
