    "Sweet Jane" was one of my favorites.

    I heard the news earlier today. I got in the car and the long guitar intro version of Sweet Jane had just begun. I turn the motor off and just sat there and listened all the way through. Another great version of Sweet Jane was done by the Cowboy Junkies. I heard that Lou Reed said it was the best version of the song he had ever heard.

    He made some great music, and some intentionally bad music, but I like his style, do what you want and let the rest deal with it.

    Sucks that hes gone.
