Washington, Oct 28 (EFE).- American rock music legend Lou Reed, co-founder of The Velvet Underground, died over the weekend, his agent, Andrew Wylie, said. He was 71.
The causes of Reed's death have not been revealed, though Wylie said they could be related to a liver transplant he had last May.
The musician died in Long Island, New York, on Sunday.
As leader of The Velvet Underground, which he created together with Welshman John Cale in 1964, Reed renewed the language of rock and roll with numbers known for an unusual mix of noise and melody.
