Lou Reed

Real Name:
Lewis Allen Reed
Profile:
American musician, songwriter, poet, and photographer (March 2, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York - October 27, 2013, Southampton, New York). Reed's music career began in 1958, when he recorded with his high school band, The Jades (2). During his time at Syracuse University in the early 1960's he formed a series of bands, but was most deeply impacted by his professor, American poet and writer Delmore Schwartz. Following college, he became a stock songwriter/musician for Pickwick International, Inc., and then in 1964, with John Cale, formed The Velvet Underground. In 1970, he left the Velvet Underground during the recording of Loaded. He signed a contract with RCA Records in 1971 and continued to perform until shortly before his death. He was married to Bettye Kronstad (ca. 1973-1974), Sylvia Reed (1980-1994), and Laurie Anderson (2008).

I miss you Lou. I had the pleasure to meet this great man and his group after a gig in Bristol UK. The most memorable moment of my musical journey. Your in the clouds but still walking on the wild side. Much love

He wasn't 'formerly' married to Laurie Anderson. He was married to her.
