- The Killers - Tranquilize ft. Lou Reed
- All These Things That I've Done (Stripped LIVE!)
On his own and as the leader of the Velvet Underground, Lou Reed created a daring body of work that proved rock & roll could be art.
Lou Reed (born on March 2, 1942) and John Cale (born on December 3, 1940) first teamed up in the Velvet Underground, making that group's first two albums before Cale went solo. In 1990, they came back together to make Songs for 'Drella, a tribute to the Velvets' mentor, Andy Warhol.
They re-formed the Velvet Underground in 1993 for a European tour, but split again afterward. ~ William Ruhlmann.
