"I like mindless disco…they say the lyrics are stupid and repetitious. So, what’s wrong with that? So is lying in the sun. Not everything has to be serious." -Lou Reed 1979

1 year without Lou Reed

(March 2, 1942 – October 27, 2013)

“Rock & roll is so great, people should start dying for it. You don’t understand. The music gave you back your beat so you could dream…The people just have to die for the music. People are dying for everything else, so why not for music? Die for it. Isn’t it pretty? Wouldn’t you die for something pretty? ” Lou Reed

"There’s a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out ”

The revolutionary musician Lou Reed passed away a year ago today - October 27, 2013
