By: AnnMarie Scaramuzzino

Rock and Roll icon and former Velvet Underground singer Lou Reed was hospitalized in New York on Sunday (June 30) following alleged dehydration, according to the New York Post.

Reed is reportedly doing fine and receiving treatment at the Southampton Hospital in Long Island. The news comes just several weeks after the 71-year-old rocker underwent surgery for a liver transplant back in May.

Lou Reed last appeared on stage at the Cannes Lions International Film Festival of Creativity on June 20.

We hope that Lou continues to recover and can get back to rockin’ soon.
