Remembering Lou Reed, 1942-2013

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Legendary musician Lou Reed, founder of the Velvet Underground, passed away on October 27, 2013 at the age of 71.

He talked with Kung Fu Magazine‘s Gene Ching in 2003 about his work with Master Ren Guang-Yi and Tai Chi’s role in his continuing success.

“Backstage, after the show, Lou Reed held court. As fans showered Reed with congratulations, the rock icon leaned forward and confided, ‘If I didn’t practice Tai Chi every day, I couldn’t do this.’”
