    Default Lou Reed Dead at 71

    Lou Reed, the punk-poet of rock n' roll who profoundly influenced generations of musicians as leader of the 1960s cult band Velvet Underground and remained a vital solo performer for decades after, has died.

    Reed's literary agent Andrew Wylie says the legendary musician died Sunday morning in Southampton at age 71 of an ailment related to his recent liver transplant.


    Reed never approached the commercial success of such contemporaries as the Beatles and Bob Dylan, but no songwriter to emerge after Dylan so radically expanded the territory of rock lyrics.

    "Holly came from MIAMI EF EL AHY". That was about the time I thought Miami Florida was land of endless summer and Disney World was nearby. Hate it when that happens. Good thing is his music will live on for some time.
