Words can’t express…well, Mr Lou Reed wouldn’t have any of that now would he? Reed lyrics were delivered with an unsentimental observers clear-eyed precision; self-amusement, bewilderment, confusion, perverse delight, heartache, pain and provocation coursed through his music.

His influence was immense.
