Lou Reed
Lou Reed is a famous American rock singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was born on March 2, 1942. His first ever public presence was felt as the guitarist and principal singer-songwriter of The Velvet Underground, he had served the band from 1965-1973.

The band gained little attention during their career as the popular ones of the time, but in the back scores became one of the most influential of their era. He was the main songwriter of the band, and he used to write on the subjects based on personal experiences, it served as a rare phenomenon in the world of rock and roll. He had started the use of distortion, high volume feedback, and nonstandard tunings in the playing of guitar.

Reed's solo career was started in the year of 1971. He had provided audience, with a hit in the following year with Walk on the Wild Side, Reed's work as a solo artist has frustrated critics wishing for a return of The Velvet Underground and he is considered to be one of rock's most volatile personalities. In the late 1980s, Reed had earned a wide recognition as an elder statesman of rock.

Lou Reed has recently married to his longtime companion Laurie Anderson in a private ceremony in Boulder of Colorado. If we look at the earlier days of him, he had developed an early interest in rock and roll and rhythm and blues, and during high school played in a number of bands. Reed had received electroconvulsive therapy in his teen years in response to his homosexual behavior, in one of the song in the year named, Kill Your Sons, he had presented his own experience.

During his stay at Syracuse University, he had hosted a late-night radio program on WAER called Excursions on a Wobbly Rail. It was a program, which typically featured doo wop, rhythm and blues and jazz, particularly the free jazz developed in the mid-1950s. The inspiration of the many of the Reed's innovative guitar techniques goes to the notable saxophonist Ornette Coleman. Reed was dropped out before graduation, later had been granted an honorary degree in English.

One of the famous poet of twentieth century, Delmore Schwartz, taught at Syracuse and befriended Reed, who in 1967 dedicated to Schwartz the song European Son, included in the debut Velvet Underground and Nico album. Reed had recorded My House, as a tribute to his late mentor in 1982. Schwartz's influence on the aspiring writer seems to have been through encouragement, but Reed also gives him a credit for encouraging him, to use of colloquial language in his writing.

Reed had moved to New York City in 61963, and began working as an in-house songwriter for Pickwick Records. He saw a little fame with the single The Ostrich in 1974. His employers had felt the song had hit record potential, and tried to persuade Reed promote the recording.

The group caught the attention of Andy Warhol, who raised their profile immeasurably, if not improving their immediate fortunes. Warhol's associates inspired many of Reed's songs as he fell into a thriving, multifaceted artistic scene. Reed always gives a tribute to Warhol as a mentor figure, in most of his interviews. Reed had left the ?Velvet Underground' in the August of 1970.
