Lou Reed's Cause of Death Revealed
Liver disease has been officially announced as the cause of Lou Reed's death, New York Times reports. Following his liver transplant at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio back in April, Reed dubbed himself "bigger and stronger than ever" and "a triumph of modern medicine, physics and chemistry." However, Dr. Charles Miller recently noted that the singer went back to the Clinic for treatment last week, but this time around, Reed's end-stage disease could no longer be treated. Hence, he returned home. "We all agreed that we did everything we could," Miller said. Meanwhile, more tributes to the late singer surfaced, including the one from Vatican. Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the culture minister of Vatican, recently tweeted the lyrics to Lou's classic song "Perfect Day." After initially posting chorus lyrics, Ravasi followed up with a Bible passage warning against "illusions" and noting that Reed quoted the passage in the part about reaping what one sows. Lou Reed passed away on Sunday (October 27) at the age of 71.
