    Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died today. The cause of his death has not yet been released, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May.

    Given his partying ways, it's a wonder that he survived this long. RIP.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
