The best rock musician that ever lived. From The Velvet Underground and Nico to Lulu, his discography is filled with timeless gems.

It's been a year and I'm still depressed. Disgustingly overshadowed by Paul Walker's death.

He singing isso brilliant because it's so distant. There no opinion involve. He just tells you the things he sees around him in the city life.

Lou is an incredible musical chameleon and songwriter. He is better known for The VU but a lot of great, diverse and interesting solo material. Transformer, Berlin, Sally Can't Dance, Coney Island Baby, Street Hassle, The Blue Mask, Legendary Hearts are all classics in my opinion. However, I would recommend all his albums as part of a journey of one of music's most important artists.
