    Probably not widely known these days, but Reed had a profound effect on rock back in the day. Someone once said that an early album of his only sold 200 copies, but everyone that bought one went out and started a band.

    Wild Side was about real folks at a club owned by Andy Warhol. How many covers are there for Sweet Jane? Dozens, at least. Great song.

    No, that's Jerry Reed. You know, Amos Moses and all.

    I freaking love Lou Reed. Personally think VU's Loaded and Lou's Transformer album are 2 of the greatest things I've ever heard.
