One sweet day, Lou…Rest in Peace.

I’m picturing you in heaven amongst all the gods of art,

pitying and loving

all of us poor beautiful cursed suckers still left below.

Masterpiece. Plain and Simple.

“All through this, I’ve always thought that if you thought of all of it as a book then you have the Great American Novel, every record as a chapter.  They’re all in chronological order.  You take the whole thing, stack it and listen to it in order, there’s my Great American Novel.”  ~ Lou Reed
