Music fans worldwide said goodbye to Lou Reed yesterday, a founding member of the Velvet Underground.
Indie rock essentially began in the 1960s with Reed and the Velvets; the punk, New Wave and alternative rock movements of the 1970s, `80s and `90s were all indebted to Reed, whose songs were covered by R.E.M., Nirvana, Patti Smith and countless others.
Reed was 71.
No slow downs to report on Hamilton roads or local highways this morning.

At a cost of $4 million for 165 spaces, the cost to the school board is $24,242 per space.
