R.I.P. Lou Reed


The Glam Rock and the New Wave would have not existed without the rock band The Velvet Underground, the charismatic leading singer of which was Lou Reed.
The latter became famous especially with Walk on the wild side.
He became an icon even if he missed the mainstream commercial success contrary to Bob Dylan, due to the dark universe depicted in his songs.
Discover or rediscover his greatest hit during the cult show Taratata here.
