David Bower from SDC recalls Lou Reed / 29 October 2013

Lou Reeds music, art and his words, have always been a big part of my life. His work basically forms one of the big themes that have coloured my days. My memories both good times and bad have somehow never been all that far away from the energy and sentiment of Velvet Underground etc.

Even though I know that his music lives on in all the influences that he had on other artists somehow the world will be just a little less cool without him.

Thank you for your art and thank you for helping me to find myself and rest in peace good Sir.
