Lou Reed has died aged 71 years old, according to Rolling Stone.

The legendary musician, and founder of Velvet Underground, is thought to have died as result of his liver transplant from earlier in the year, though the cause of his death has yet to be confirmed.

Reed was born in 1942 in Brooklyn, and released arguably one of the most influential albums of all time 25 years later, The Velvet Underground & Nico.
