A Lot Of People Thought Lou Bega Died Yesterday Instead of Lou Reed

Understandable. Who hasn’t been mixing up the two Lou’s for years? Especially journalists?

Anyway, consider this settled. The man who brought us “Mambo No. 5″ is still alive (and releasing new material), the man responsible for “Walk on the Wild Side” is not. RIP Lou, long live Lou.
