Here we are a whole day later and I am still not over the fact the Lou Reed will never make music again. The Velvet Underground were the band that got me into music and will always be my favorite. The first portrait I painted was of Lou Reed (it is too terrible to show anyone). A part of my heart will always be reserved for him and his music. Listen to the Velvet Underground, listen to Transformer and celebrate one of the most influential people to the art and music world.
