(Classic Rock) Lou Reed's widow Laurie Anderson has told how he died while looking at the trees in his garden as he performed tai chi. The 71-year-old passed away after doctors treating him for liver failure told him that nothing more could be done to save him. He decided to spend his final days outside hospital.

In a touching obituary in the East Hampton Star, she writes: "To our neighbours: What a beautiful fall! Everything shimmering and golden and all that incredible soft light. Water surrounding us. Lou and I have spent a lot of time here in the past few years, and even though we're city people this is our spiritual home.

"Last week I promised Lou to get him out of the hospital and come home to Springs. And we made it!," she continues. "Lou was a tai chi master and spent his last days here being happy and dazzled by the beauty and power and softness of nature. He died on Sunday morning looking at the trees and doing the famous 21 form of tai chi with just his musician hands moving through the air." She had more to say.
