Lou Reed, musical legend and founding member of The Velvet Underground, passed away on Sunday at age 71. The American singer-songwriter died from liver disease after receiving a liver transplant earlier this year.
Reed is most famous for his work with The Velvet Underground, which is often cited as influencing some of music’s most influential songwriters. Producer Brian Eno famously said “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.”
