I had read that Laurie had canceled her appearance with the Kronos Quartet in Austin earlier this month.

Maybe Lou's condition was the reason?

“LOU REED, 71″ by Byron Coley

LOU REED, 71

the easiest heroes are consistent
but the ones who really shape us
are random maniacs
whose work we stumble across
at times in our lives
we desperately need misdirection

and so it was i met the music of lou reed
through a guy named buzz
who’d bought the first velvets album
but didn’t like it
just the way he hadn’t liked the first mothers album
a month earlier
which meant i got each for a buck

there is literally no way to describe
the way that record hit me
i was a ten year old seventh grader
and the first time i played the album
i was transformed into someone else
someone who knew more than my contemporaries
even if i couldn’t quite shake it all out

lou and john and sterling and moe
gave me much more info
than i could understand
but they did it in a way
i loved so intuitively
with music exploding in such amazing directions
it made sense on a molecular level

and through the years i followed lou
good scenes, bad scenes, he put us through it all
but we kinda paid attention
because, after all
this motherfucker
this lou reed

this electroshocked cocksucking bastard
who put out many more lousy records than good
was the father of everyone i’ve ever known
and i never thought he’d die
and i really miss him

more than i ever thought i would

— Byron Coley

Dedicated to Uncle Lou, I think this tune best fits the somberness of the occasion. This is the DEFINITIVE version, nothing touches it, epically good, especially the bridge..

Berlin from American Poet live recording 1972.. this is my fucking favorite.

I didn't make it. I thought it was hilarious, playing off of the "squares" severe lack of actual info about the underground freaks who create the culture they (the "squares") happen to live in.

Like the fucks who wear sonic youth t shirts because sonic youth are a known "cool" thing, but who know fucking jack shit about the music, and the band.

Yeah, I figured you didn't make it.

I guess I was wondering if you were saying, "Whoever made this should be hung and anyone who buys it should be shot!!" Or if was more like, "Let's laugh at idiots." You answered my question. It was the latter.

I was once on the piss with a friend of mine around town. We stopped off at a cash machine, whilst there there was a group of people stood near by. One of them had a Goo t-shirt on. Me being drunk I ambled over to talk to them about it. When I asked if he liked Sonic Youth he just looked at me blankly and said "wut". That was it, I just went nuts, not embarrassingly nuts but enough to call him a "fucking poser" and so on. Anyway that's my story. GOODNIGHT! Oh and don't be a lameass and wear band t-shirts if you have no idea who they are.

When I was in highschool my gutter punk friend and I would annihilate posers by (in a seemingly friendly way) approaching folks in various band t-shirts or with band patches on their backpacks and asking them, "Did you go to the show last week/month at such-and-such.." or "isn't such-and-such a fucking kick ass record.." and they would be baffled because they didn't even know the band on their t-shirt was playing last week. Then we'd just walk away, leaving them feeling like a shallow poser without even having to directly call them out.

I think Lou Reed wold have thought it was funny, although it was very hard to tell whether Lou enjoyed humor. it is one thing to be funny, and another to enjoy laughing at oneself.
