Welcome to Rock it Out! Blog Primetime! Our award-winning YouTube webshow will now be aired three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) at 8pm CT. In the coming week, we’ll be expanding the show, incorporating news, interviews, roundtable discussions, and other various segments into one episode.
On today’s episode of the Rock it Out! Blog, Sami looks back at the life and career of Lou Reed, who died from liver disease on Sunday. Joining him for a roundtable discussion are Joe Levy, Editor of Billboard magazine, Michael Hogan, Digital Director of Vanity Fair, and Rich Russo, host of the radio program Anything, Anything. They discuss their favorite albums, which albums new listeners should begin with, and why Reed’s influence continues to permeate not just rock music but popular music altogether.
