Lou Reed Biography Coming

(hennemusic) Rolling Stone writer Will Hermes has signed with publishers Farrar, Straus and Giroux to write "Lou: A New York Life", a biography of the late Lou Reed.

The New York Times reports Hermes says he plans to write a "full, definitive biography" on Reed, who passed away October 27 from liver disease at the age of 71.

As for the subtitle, still tentative, Hermes said New York City would "figure prominently" in the book, "because how could it not? Reed loved the city deeply, based his adult life here, rooted much of his work here and was a huge figure in our cultural life. I think we have yet to fully measure the loss. He was one of the greatest artists of our generation." more on this story
