The other day while climbing I had Lou Reeds great song, "Romeo and Juliette" running through my mind all day. All friggan day. A bit strange as I have only listened to Lou Reed sporadically throughout my life. The Cowboy Junkies version of Sweet Jane on Saturday Night Live years back had brought back the Lou Reed memory and that was all but forgotten it had been so long. I walked into work the next morning and started blasting it via computer to quizzical looks form co-workers. I simply said, "I couldn't get it out of my mind yesterday when I was off work, so I'm playing it today".

Now I reed that the man hiself has passed.

Vios con dios. Play it cranked up.....



or with some great musicians raging live...Lou is a tad off though.

Bummer he influenced a lot of the bands I have listened to for the last 25 years. Kind of always thought I would I would see him, I guess not.

Notice Lou's references to James Joyce, Shakespeare and the like....the pioneers of progressive music had solid backgrounds of exposure to Classical analytical thought and their musical creations reflected that breadth of thought.

I fear that our current and most recently spawned Generations no longer have either exposure or awareness of the history of creativity that preceded themselves.

Werner may be right...we may be quite stupid.

Boy, ain't that the truth.

Waitaminit...'spose the previous generation said the same thing about us?
