One chord is fine. Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz.

I tried to give up drugs by drinking.

These are really terribly rough times, and we really should try to be as nice to each other as possible.

The music is all. People should die for it. People are dying for everything else, so why not the music?
~ Lou Reed

The Velvet Undergroud, "Ride Into the Sun"




Boy, this one really hurt. It's hard to imagine much of the music I love and have listened to without the influence of Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground. It's difficult to imagine the music of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spacemen 3, Roxy Music, Rain Parade, Dream Syndicate, REM, Feelies, Mazzy Star, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, etc. without thinking of where it all really started from. When music really began to get real and matter.

Listening to the Velvet Underground in the early 80s when I was in high school in the Midwest got me over a rough stretch in my life when I had relationship problems with my first girlfriend. It brought me comfort over some long sleepless nights. Their music was incomparable then. And it still stands the test of time.

Going away to college, I will never forget turning friends on to them. The VU and Nico debut would somehow always end up on the turntable when we experimented with psychedelics. When we peaked, "Heroin" would invariably be one of the songs playing. The song, itself, is like a trip. The drums become your heartbeart. The chaotic guitars and vocals were the intoxicants in your blood coursing through your veins. When the song peaked, you peaked.

It was a transforming rites of passage for my young friends and I.




The Velvet Underground, "Heroin"

I have listened to a lot of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground the past few days. (and countless times over the years) I never get tired of them. I've also been lucky to have seen him a few times. Thanks a lot for the great music, Lou. You've helped a lot more than you can imagine.
