Reminded That I’m Getting Older

I know with every day that passes, I get that little bit older. It’s not something I worry about, nor actively spend any real amount of time thinking about. However when someone famous dies, it kids of gives you that reminder that we are all mortal.

Just heard today that Lou Reed died. I have to admit, I’ve never been a huge Lou Reed or for that matter Velvet Underground fan, but you’d have had to have had your head buried in a ground, not to know Walk on the Wild Side. He was a person that lived life to the full and it invariably contributed to his demise. He had a liver transplant last year, the old one, having seen an inordinate amount of action.

And so another piece of my childhood has shuffled off this mortal coil. He has undeniably left a rich musical legacy, that I am sure I will continue to dip into. Knowing me, I’ll suddenly become a fan, after all these years.
