With death comes superlatives, and they started rolling in after the iconic punk poet and Velvet Underground leader Lou Reed died on Sunday, October 27: Most influential band ever. Greatest debut album ever. Most uncompromising rock star. And many, many more. Crossing age groups and fans of different styles of music, he has been heralded as one of the important and influential musicians in contemporary music whose appeal transcends age groups and style of music. Within hours of his death listeners began asking the station to create a tribute show to remember and celebrate Lou Reed.
Flee will MC as Andy Warhol!
