I'm honestly not a morbid kind of person. I tend to look forward rather than back. But it did hit me like a ton of bricks when I remembered Lou Reed passed two years ago today.

What you'll read below is what I wrote to friends on Lou's passing:

Early Beatles taught me Happy music, The Stones gave me Grit, but the VU & Lou - let me enter worlds I'd never travel to let alone inhabit. What MORE can you ask from Art?

I stand by that two years on.
