Seems like Lou Reed is doing better than ever following his liver transplant last month, with the 71-year-old ex-Velvet Underground frontman taking to Facebook to declare that he is “a triumph of modern medicine, physics and chemistry”.
The Walk On The Wild Side singer was forced to cancel his appearance at Coachella earlier in the year, citing unavoidable complications. It was then revealed by his wife, experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson, that Reed recently underwent the transplant in Cleveland, Ohio, telling The Times, “It’s as serious as it gets. He was dying. You don’t get one for fun”.
But Reed seems to be making a champion recovery, declaring on Facebook that he’s stronger than ever:
“I am a triumph of modern medicine, physics and chemistry. I am bigger and stronger than stronger than ever. My Chen Taiji and health regimen has served me well all of these years, thanks to Master Ren Guang-yi. I look forward to being on stage performing, and writing more songs to connect with your hearts and spirits and the universe well into the future.”
Here at Music Feeds, we wish Mr Reed a speedy recovery and look forward to new tunes from the Transformer legend in the future.
