Topic - Lou Reed
Rocker Lou Reed's life was decidedly unconventional, but he wanted his estate used for a very traditional purpose: to benefit his wife and other relatives.
Before he finally flew into the sun this week, Lou Reed set the world of rock 'n' roll aflame, filled stereos with the spirit of pure poetry, renounced the fakery of so much commercial success, fed the Velvet Revolution and chronicled some of New York City's freakiest characters.
Rock legend Lou Reed, of the 1960s New York City band the Velvet Underground, died on Sunday, Rolling Stone reported. He was 71. Mr. Reed radically challenged rock's founding promise of good times and public celebration.
Award-winning director Darren Aronofsky will direct a music video from the new Metallica and Lou Reed album, "Lulu."
In an April 13 story about prosecutors declining to pursue a harassment charge against singer Lou Reed's manager in a money dispute with a consultant, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the consultant, Adrian Smith, had been paid the disputed funds in full before making his claim to police. Smith and a spokesman for Reed's manager confirm that Smith was paid a day after he made his complaint in March.
And he wrote numerous love songs to heroin, his pulsing heartbeat played by a quickening drum.
Mr. Reed wrote some of rock's most explicit lyrics about drugs ("Heroin," "Waiting for My Man"), sadomasochism ("Venus in Furs") and prostitution ("There She Goes Again").
