#RIP Lou: Celebrities Tweet Their Reactions
Lou Reed, rock & roll poet and founding member of the Velvet Underground, died on the same Sunday morning that he taught us all to love (“Sunday Morning.” 1966). As usual, Twitter was the first to know it. Here is how Jewish celebrities reacted:
The one and only Lou Reed, died today at 71.

Lou Reed forever defined the beautifully blue Sunday morning. It feels like a wry touch to hear the sad news about him at such a time.

I think I read that Eno said The Velvet Underground never had a big hit, but everyone who heard them went out and started a band. #LouReed
