RIP Lou Reed, 1942-2013

I love Lou Reed so I'm very sad to hear this news. The Velvet Underground are probably my favourite band ever; the meeting of Reed and Cale far more exciting than (say) the meeting of Lennon and McCartney or Jagger and Richards. I love Reed's solo stuff too; I was listening to New York just the other day, and even like his collaboration with Metallica, Lulu. Anyway, another legend gone.

Unrelated to dear old Lou but did you know someone has 'stolen' your name? Is it possible? Anyway you should sue (is tht how you spell it) and get loads of money.

Yes I should. He's an imposter.
