Lou Reed was on my mind yesterday after he was mentioned in a Guardian feature on Michael Imperioli.Bit of a coincidence that I should read this today...
Reed's death hadn't escaped my notice; he'd picked up hepatitis when injecting heroin years before.
One of those artists who probably expected to die in harness as @Stormkhan says and wouldn't have cared, being young, but then cleaned up and went on to greatness; only for the habit to kill them after all.
