The music Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground created is foundational for me, and a cornerstone to the music that I celebrate here on ANS.
There was such a spectrum of sounds to explore in his music from the cooly beautiful to the most dark and dissonant.
I loved his music for being literate, avante garde, rock and roll, weird, off key, clashing, and killer. I loved that it was honest and authentic.
I loved it for spawning a million other bands with it’s pure rock and roll DNA.
Yeah, his music moved me, rocked me, rolled me, stirred my soul.
