SETLIST:An Ode to Lou Reed

Growing up, Lou Reed had an early interest in rock and R&B. And before he found stardom as the singer, guitarist and main songwriter for one of the most influential bands of all time, the Velvet Underground, he began his music career as an in-house writer for a record company. That, ultimately, proved to be incredibly valuable for Reed, who would go on to become one of the finest writers in rock history, achieving great success with the Velvets and in his own five-decade solo career. And upon his death, we look back with respect and listen to his legacy with a smile, An Ode to Lou Reed.
