Lou Reed dead at 71

Lou Reed, anchor of New York rock band the Velvet Underground and widely regarded as one of pop's most influential musicians, has died, the Associated Press reported Sunday. He was 71. Though a cause of death has not yet been revealed, the Associated Press cited a "liver-related ailment." After canceling a scheduled appearance at April's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Reed underwent a liver transplant. In a statement after the surgery, he said he looked "forward to being onstage and performing." His most recently released recorded album was "Lulu," a 2011 collaboration with heavy metal act Metallica. PHOTOS: Lou Reed |...
