Lou Reed is ‘Walking on the Wild Side’ to another year of life.
The leader of Velvet Underground for four studio albums celebrates his 69th birthday today. So far, Lou has quite the career, and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
An “A+” showman, always full of surprises, he most recently (2011) worked with Metallica. Some would rather we don’t mention the collaboration that came about in the form of Lulu, but we praise the Lou for his willingness to always try something different.
The man is an ageless wonder with more than just musical talent. Reed’s most recent project, the photobook Rimes Ryhmes, contains his photography that documents his adventures with light manipulation over the decades.
Happy Birthday Lou Reed! May you continue to grace the world with your artistically diverse skillset!
