Happy Birthday, Lou

He’s the velvet voice of The Velvet Underground, and the man who voiced a seriously fucked-up drug use sequence in "Trainspotting" (“Perfect Day” being a perfectly macabre song choice for said scene).

He’s a New York institution in his own right, having spent long years prowling the streets clad in black and an icy cool demeanor, and I think it’s an easy declaration to call him a living legend.

He’s one of those rare artists that’ll be long-remembered for his work in many ways, both for those legendary and highly influential years spent with The Velvets, not to mention his solo career.

We hereby extend the warmest of birthday wishes to Mr. Lou Reed. Many happiest of happy returns.
