RIP Lou Reed — one of my favorite rock ‘n’ roll animals of all time. Here is a bit of “Rock ‘n’ Roll” from 1983. At that time, I could have easily been the guy playing air guitar in the background. Here is a link to the live LP version. Below are a couple of pics of my guitar signed by Lou Reed. Reed generously donated this guitar to an auction held by “Little Kids Rock” (scroll down the page) and I was, unbelievably, the successful bidder. Reed apparently had little ego because he did not set a reserve, unlike some of the other donors in the auction.
