Possibly the coolest man in rock history. No one else since has been able to wear sunglasses and write songs about their sleazy life in 1970s New York quite like he could.

If you are looking to get into Lou’s solo stuff start with the following records on your way to becoming a big fan like me.

1. Transformer
2. Berlin
3. Rock and Roll Animal
4. Lou Reed Live
5. Coney Island Baby
6. Street Hassle
7. The Blue Mask
8. New York

Then listen to Metal Machine Music to clear your head and dive into the rest.

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.

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.
