    Do you really not have anything better to do with your time? Jackass.

    Glad I decided against going to Coachella this year now. Lou was the act I was most excited about.

    I saw Lou Reed serve as the King of the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island a couple years ago in miserable heat comparable to what one might experience at Coachella. His primary function at the parade was occasionally wave his withered hand at the crowd, and he couldn't even muster the energy to do that.

    The fact of the matter is that Lou Reed is just a bit of a douchebag.

    He cancelled because he found out the Stone Roses were headlining and said "fuck that shit, I ain't playin at the same fest as those shitty d-bags!"

    Lou Reed sucks ballz now, I don't understand the people who were overly excited for him. Have you seen his 20+ minute rendition of The Raven? Its horrifyingly bad! Yes he made some of the best music ever made, but no, he's not jizz worthy these days. If you are wanting a refund, there are probably 40 bands you have never heard of on the bill that will make you feel young hip and kewl again...bands that will be canceling festival appearances 30 years from now....

    Sorry, that's as good as it gets on my very fancy 2007 Compaq, using microsoft paint while taking a bongload. The spray paint feature almost made the clouds Kinkade-esque. Truly a fine moment.

    There's probably quite a few skinny indie rockers on the lineup that Lou could beat in the boxing ring.

    If you look at the Friday lineup it's possible the best they could offer Lou is 4-5th spot main stage, 2-3rd Outside or even a tent spot. Lou was a subheadliner at Lolla 2009.
    http://stereogum.com/img/lolla09-sunday-sched.jpg
    I could see a scenario where Lou said "get me a better spot or I stay in NYC" and for better/worse GV let the pieces fall where they did.

    Lou bailed on a show in Europe and one in New Jersey in the past 6 months without giving a reason. I've seen him bailed on a couple Canadian TV interviews in the 80's/90's within minutes. it's not a work visa or rehearsal issue with 3 weeks to go. it's not a health issue as recent video shows nothing out of the ordinary and you can still buy tickets for wife Laurie Anderson's Caroline/California mid April shows. No speculation on Lou's health anywhere and GV unceremonally dropped his name.

    The only thing I wonder about is what Language Lou had in his contract regarding billing/set times and the strength of his "out" clause.

    Amazingly accurate analysis from all involved. "Consistent with the known facts" was my favorite.

    Perhaps we should all take some time to reflect on how dumb you all are.

    There, that's better.

    I didn't realize Lou Reed was married. Thought he was openly homosexual.

    Presumably Lou was on a donor list for a long period of time. I still find it curious that Laurie was gigging around the country far away from Lou in Cleveland.

    Because him having health issues automatically makes it required for her to cancel all up coming gigs. Maybe because he didn't give any reasons to the cancellations he didn't want anyone to know and if they both cancelled it would be really suspicious. Or perhaps because he was on the donor waiting list there really wasn't anything they could do until the organ came in so instead of sitting around doing nothing she continued on with her life. I'm sure there are multiple reasons, none of which are really curious.

    Lou Reed reportedly recovering from liver transplant

    By Mikael Wood
    June 1, 2013, 8:18 a.m.

    Lou Reed is recuperating after a liver transplant that saved his life, said the New York rocker's wife, Laurie Anderson, in an interview published Saturday in the Times of London.

    "It's as serious as it gets," Anderson told the newspaper of the operation, which Reed had in Cleveland. "He was dying. You don't get it for fun."

    In March the former Velvet Underground frontman, 71, canceled a handful of West Coast performances, including his planned appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. At the time he cited "unavoidable complications."

    Anderson said she's not sure Reed will ever "totally recover" from the transplant, but added that "he'll certainly be back to doing [things] in a few months. He's already working and doing t'ai chi. I'm very happy. It's a new life for him."

    In 2011 Reed collaborated with Metallica on the album "Lulu," and last year he appeared with the band Metric on its album "Synthetica."
