Not a 'Perfect Day', in fact far from it.

Very sad, but not surprising. I remember standing outside the Stage Door of a London Theatre prior to one of the Amnesty International Secret Policeman's Balls (remember them?) in around 1987 and Lou was ( literally) walked in on the arms of two aides. He was white as a sheet and looked half dead even then. I've been expecting this news ever since :(. A real talent and a sad loss.

Tragic.
I suppose life catches up but he had straightened himself up a long while back.
Last thing I heard he was shacked up with Laurie Anderson.
Imagine the breakfast table chat in that household.
'Heroin' is my favourite Lou song, powerful, scary and so glamorous.
Note, I do not glamorise Heroin addiction.

Too many to pick just one but I (still) love the Velvet Underground banana album. Pale Blue Eyes and Sunday Morning are faves of mine but there are SOS many others. Nico was a brilliant artiste too, lost far too young.

RIP Lou.

I remember buying New York for my sis when it came out - another great album of his - must go and borrow it again.
