Lou made his mark in the Velvet Underground. As Lillian Roxon said about them: “They were punk in a time of flower power” and to that I would like to add that they were absolutely awesome. From my perspective Lou was the heart and soul of the Underground. Lou died today, on Sunday morning, and based on that here is how I will always remember him…..
Great vocal from Lou but I must confess it is not my favorite Lou song. Have a listen to Heroin which is my favorite…..
The dynamics of this song are unbelievable.
When the Underground broke up in 1970/1971 Lou went on to have the most success of any of the other group members having a huge hit with “Walk On The Wild Side” in 1972.
