Die BBC sammelt Nachrufe auf Lou Reed. „Coyote at the top of the hill, doin' the things coyotes will.“ R.I.P. Lou.
Rock legend David Bowie has led the tributes to US singer and former Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed, who died on Sunday aged 71. Bowie's Facebook page said of his "old friend", considered one of the most influential singers and songwriters in rock: "He was a master." Reed's second solo album Transformer, featuring Perfect Day and Walk on the Wild Side, was co-produced by Bowie.
Reed's literary agent said he died of a "liver-related ailment".
The last tweet posted on his official Twitter account, hours before the news of his death, simply stated: "The Door". The tweet links through to a photograph of a door, with a poster of Reed on it and the words "Papa Loves Baby" scrawled underneath.
