Sangria in the Park – Adios Lou!

Lou Reed passed away this weekend. It’s a cliche to say that the Velvet Underground only sold 1,000 albums, but each one of those albums spawned a band, yet it rings true. Reed’s direct songs used simple rock patterns combined with his dead pan lyrics and delivery to make great music that inspired countless others and helped spawn the whole punk/indie world of rock.
