Lou Reed remembered

Lou Reed was one of the greats, starting a rock band that changed rock and roll.

Velvet Underground is one of the few bands to influence generations of musicians. When he had the liver transplant in the past year, it seemed to be that minor national story that everyone reported.

Shame that he didn't survive, dying this weekend at age 71. People were rooting for him. Now, the news is much bigger as the impact of his talent and his work are celebrated.

Here are some photos.
