Lou ReedSinger-songwriter Lou Reed died this sunday. Reed, who was in music for almost fifty years, underwent a liver transplant last May, and it looks like the transplant did not succeed.

Later, Reed collaborated with, amongst others, Metallica, The Killers, Simple Minds, Tom Tom Club, John Cale, Bruce Hornsby and Gorrilaz.

Reed was a good friend of Andy Warhol and married singer Laurie Anderson (‘Oh Superman’) in 2008.
