RIP Lou Reed, integrity personified.

RIP Lou Reed 1942 – 2013

Artist of genuine integrity and talent who fearlessly portrayed the full spectrum of life around him and who relentlessly upheld core human values;  ‘telling it like it is’ regardless of career-limiting consequences

Dirty Boulevard” from the 1989 New York album

Give us your hungry, your tired, your poor; we’ll piss all over them
  That’s what the Tory/Lib Dem coalition say.

And who could blame anyone for wanting a perfect day, smack bang away from the madness?

    • Lou had a reputation, for sure. He was tough and he could be grumpy and bitchy, but his bitchiness came out when there was incompetence about. Didn’t matter if it was a waiter or a record producer, he’d rip someone apart if things weren’t up to scratch.
      He didn’t suffer fools gladly. That’s just the way he was, but he was also incredibly encouraging and generous. Not many human beings can manage even that.
