(Classic Rock) Lou Reed's life has been saved by a liver transplant, it's been revealed. The 71-year-old Velvet Underground icon underwent an emergency procedure in Cleveland in April after his own liver failed as a result of years of drug usage.

"It's as serious as it gets he was dying," says Reed's wife Laurie Anderson. "You send out two planes, one for the donor, one for the recipient, at the same time. You bring the donor in live and take him off life support. It's a technological feat. I was completely awestruck."

Reed echoes her sentiments in a brief statement, saying: "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." more on this story
