Lou Reed

Despite a death hoax a few years prior, Lou Reed did actually shuffle off this mortal coil in October 2013, today is Lou’s birthday, so we’ll celebrate his life with a Shadow in his honor. There are so many great Lou/VU covers, how to choose just one? I’m going with one that perhaps some of you haven’t heard. The Feelies covering The Velvet Underground’s “What Goes On”.

 

And the cover comes from New Jersey band (and VU fanatics) The Feelies, who amp up hte bpm’s quite a bit in their speedy cover.
