  14. HEAVY LOSS

    During the past eight days, we lost Ronald Shannon Jackson and Lou Reed…

     


  15. MISSING LOU REED

    This will sound crazy, but I treated Lou Reed as if he would always be around. Hell, the dude’s been in the music biz for more than half a century so pardon me for feeling that way.

    I give Reed ultra props for relentlessly exploring paths to redefine Rock without anyone ever questioning his authenticity. He even picked up a ton of emulators along the way. Lou Reed is a real Rock Star, and I mean that in the present tense.

    Rest in Love, Bro…
