“One chord is fine. Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.”

- Lou Reed

Much of my music passes the above “into jazz” marker. That said, Lou Reed taught me a great deal about productivity, creativity, and the maxim that “sometimes, less is more.”

Sad tonight for Laurie Anderson, and for us, who are deprived of more “more with less.”

One thought on “RIP Lou Reed (1942-2013)

  1. We spent more time listening to Lou Reed than perhaps any other artist in common during our formative years, Christian. Glad to see you grabbed a live performance of Dirty Boulevard for your remembrance.
