Lunchtime Poll 10/27/13: We’ll Miss You, Lou Reed

Rock icon and international treasure Lou Reed, former frontman of The Velvet Underground, passed away yesterday. 

I bought my first VU album in Athens, Greece, on a theater trip in college. When I got home, I shared it with my dad, and we’ve bonded over Lou Reed ever since.

Tell me a story about an album or song that’s been important to you, readers.

I was introduced to Lou Reed during my freshman yr of college by a friend who was OBSESSED with Lou. I never got into his stuff that much, but when I look back on that year, it featured repeated listens to the Live – Take No Prisoners album, which had just come out, and which I still will quote at random (and am hipsterishly pleased when no one gets the reference.)
