  • Lou Reed

    Lou Reed’s greatest influence was as leader of the 1960s New York proto-punk band the Velvet Underground, but the man has enjoyed a varied, multi-decade solo career that’s often likened to that of David Bowie—whom Reed directly inspired. Leaving the group that he founded in 1970, Reed continued to challenge rock forms in his solo work. His seminal 1972 solo album, Transformer, was produced by Bowie and Mick Ronson and is considered one of the first glam-rock records. Whether portraying the sordid, taboo underbelly of Andy Warhol’s New York City or reciting the macabre poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, Reed has always brought a brutal honesty to rock and roll. His gritty realism is amazing on vinyl.
