Photo of Lou Reed at a social function on March 22nd 2013. The west coast tour was quietly cancelled several days later.
Laurie payed a gig in North Carolina on April 4th, days after Lou pulled the plug on the tour.
When Lou cancelled the west coast tour with 3 weeks notice there were plenty of concerns over his health.
It's still unclear when exactly the surgery took place, Laurie's "last month" quote indicates "April".
What was he planning on doing if he didn't get the transplant?? Dying on stage at Coachella....
I wish him a speedy recovery and I wish they had said " because of serious health concerns" or something like that rather than "unavoidable circumstances".
It would have prevented a lot of anger and ill will from people who were mad about him cancelling.
That would have been terrible if he died and all these people who had no idea what was going on who had fostered all these terrible thoughts towards him for cancelling shows.
As for wanting to be private, you can't really be private when you're a musician, actor, etc. That's your life.
I suggest plumbing for a low profile life.
Are you a marriage counselor?
I don't imagine the jerks calling Lou a d-bag will come back and apologise for being, well, d-bags i suppose.
There are some serious fuckwits on here.
