Another great one has passed.
Sad news to report today as Lou Reed has passed away at 71 years old.
The rock legend is most famously known at the founder and lead singer of the Velvet Underground.
While details of his death were initially unknown, we are now hearing that the passing was liver-related. He did undergo a liver transplant in May and suffered complications that put him back in the hospital in June.
Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time.

We can't imagine what Lea Michele is going through.
It's been such a hard road, but her love with Cory Monteith was not only strong, but honest.
And now, following the coroner's announcement of Cory's cause of death (a "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol"), the Glee actress has released an official statement.
A statement by her reps reads:
We're so glad this sad process is going smoothly.
James Gandolfini passed away just days ago while in Italy, but thanks to a lot of officials, his body is being flown back to New York City.
While this process normally takes quite a bit longer, things have been expedited for the family so that his funeral can take place this week.
Family spokesperson Michael Kobold spoke about the current situation:
Like everyone in the world, we were super saddened to learn of James Gandolfini's passing last night, and beyond realizing the world had lost an astounding actor, everyone's minds shifted to his kids losing an incredible father.
In almost every interview, you would hear him mention or bring up his kids in one way or another — and it was always heartwarming. He left behind a 13-year-old son, who he was on a “boys trip” with in Italy when he passed. He also had an 8-month-old daughter, Liliana Ruth, who he had with his second wife, Deborah Lin.
Here's what one of his fellow actors and friend, Gilles Marini, said:
The saddest part of life is that we all must face death, as everyone around us is on the same path, with the same end. From enemies to those closest to us, nobody can escape it — and yet this unavoidable and universal constant remains one of the toughest experiences for us all. We feel for those who have lost loved ones, because someday we will too.
Stephen Colbert has just lost his mother, who he touchingly honored last night on The Colbert Report. Through his emotion and his stories, we get a sense of just not only how profound her passing was to those closest to her, but also how profound her 90+ years of life were as well.
Stephen might play a caricature on his show, but for the first few minutes of his returning episode he was as real as our closest friends. Watch a good man talk about his wonderful mother, and what she meant to everyone around her (above).
Things like these are always worth our time. Our hearts go out to Stephen and his family.
On the flip side, there are people that can never forget that she was called The Iron Lady for a reason. If we made a list of those people, we'd be willing to bet that singer Morrissey would add his own name RIGHT AT THE TOP!
Morrissey just put the former Prime Minister on blast, calling her barbaric! Here's what he said:
