Lou Reeds død fylder Twitter

Lou Reeds død fylder Twitter

I søndags mistede vi en af historiens største rockmusikere. Lou Reed døde i en alder af 71, og hans eftermæle hyldes nu på de sociale medier, hvor kondolencerne fortsat bliver ved med at rulle ind. Lou Reed havde en lang og imponerende karriere bag sig, som gjorde ham til en legende i den musikalske verden. Et vidnesbyrd på Reeds massive indflydelse findes i de mange varme hilsner fra andre store artister og kunstnere:

"He was a master"- David Bowie

"'Oh Lou / why did you leave us this way?' No words to express the sadness at the death of Lou Reed. He had been there all of my life. He will always be pressed to my heart. Thank God for those, like Lou, who move within their own laws, otherwise imagine how dull the world would be. I knew the Lou of recent years and he was always full of good heart. His music will outlive time itself. We are all timebound, but today, with the loss of liberating Lou, life is a pigsty." – Morrissey

"The great & amazing Lou Reed has died my condolences 2 his wife Laurie Anderson. Lou was 1of a kind & this colored girl still says dededede..." –Whoopi Goldberg

"Lou Reed has died. That's terrible news. A huge part of my younger years revolved around him and his music. GN" –Gary Numan

"Deepest Gratitude Lou Reed. Peace" - Mia Farrow  

Blandt de mange varme hilsner findes dog også enkelte fra mere uventede kanter, som yderligere sætter steg under Lou Reeds indflydelsesrige liv:

"Oh, it's such a perfect day I'm glad I spend it with you Oh, such a perfect day You just keep me hanging on (Lou Reed)" - Vatikanets kardinal Gianfranco Ravasis

Det sidste opslag fra Lou Reeds egen Twitter-profil var fra dødsdagen 27. oktober, hvor han tweetede ovenstående billede.
