Lou Reed wrote the soundtrack for my life. I remember the passage of time by what Lou Reed album I was listening to at the time … Mistrial, New Sensations, New York, Songs for Drella, Magic and Loss, Set the Twilight Reeling, Perfect Night Live in London, Ecstasy… (not to mention all the earlier stuff that was interspersed among these…). I last saw him a few years back in Philadelphia, front row. What a show.
“There’s a little bit of Magic in everything, then some Loss to even things out.”
Lou Reed, 1942-2013
