Tonights Stonehenge show was our tribute to the late Lou Reed who passed away this past week.  Lou Reed was one of the most influential songwriter and guitarist of the past 50 years.  This is an excerpt from Rolling Stone Magazine, "with the Velvet Underground in the late Sixties, Reed fused street level urgency with elements of European avant-garde music, marrying beauty and noise, while bringing a whole new lyrical honesty to rock & roll poetry"  --- Lou once said, "one chord is fine, two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you're into jazz"  Lou you will be missed.
