Metric’s Emily Haines Pays Tribute to Lou Reed’s Integrity and Humor

This is extremely touching, and heartfelt. Must read.

Playing “Cremation” with Lou was heavy enough at the time, but now that he’s gone the lyrics just break my heart. “The coal black sea waits for me me me/ the coal black sea waits forever/ when I leave this joint/ at some further point/ the same coal black sea/ will it be waiting?”

In his last message to me, Lou wrote, “I’m so sorry Emily I would’ve if I could have but I’m a little under the weather but I love you.”

I love you, too.
