A legendary American musician, Lou Reed, will be remembered by many people around the world for his dark rock music during the 1960s.  He was a guitarist and vocalist of the group the Velvet Underground in the 1960s who had an amazing following of musicians around the world.  Later he quit the group in August 1970 and decided to be a solo artist.

Shortly after going solo, Reed had a hit “Walk on the Wildside.”  Reed was known for his deep dark voice and poetic lyrics.

Reed, 71, died Sunday in Southampton, N.Y. of complications from a May liver transplant, according to his literary agent Andrew Wylie. In March, Reed had canceled his scheduled appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio.

He will be remembered by millions of fans.
