Lou Reed has sadly passed awayUnfortunately, Lou Reed has sadly passed away, 71 years old, it’s been confirmed by the Rolling Stone magazine.
Lou Reed had an incredible influence on popular music.
Personally, I actually first got introduced to chord progressions by Lou Reed. I remember thinking, what are the chords to ‘Walk On The Wild Side’, that bridge section, what happens there? This was my first introduction to how a chord progression can take a song somewhere new.
‘Walk On The Wild Side’ will probably be his most memorable song. One day, I will record this song as a lesson.
