In the wake of the news of Lou Reed's death, many musicians have offered their thoughts and feelings in a variety of ways, but nothing celebrates the life of a treasured songwriter like simply singing their songs. The Arctic Monkeys led the crowd at Liverpool's Echo Arena in a spot-on singalong cover of Lou Reed's famed "Walk On The Wild Side" and the fan-shot video captures the cathartic moment just how it should be. Watch the video above.
For another great tribute to Reed's life, watch an excellent cover of "Oh Sweet Nuthin" performed by My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, and Jenny Lewis right here at Zumic.
