Quote of the day

"One chord is fine. Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz."

RIP Lou Reed, musical pioneer and legendary critic-baiting curmudgeon. Such a shame his last release was Lulu, the collaboration with Metallica...

Update: And here are some tributes, including one from Reed's songwriting partner in The Velvet Underground, John Cale: "Unlike so many with similar stories—we have the best of our fury laid out on vinyl, for the world to catch a glimpse."
