Lou Reed's Liver Transplant

And yet another major rock star has undergone a liver transplant and survived. The 71 year old Lou Reed declared that he feels, "bigger and stronger" than ever shortly after he had a liver transplant. He claims the mix of modern medicine and Tai Chi has kept him in health all these years. Wife Lauri Anderson declared that Lou Reed's liver condition was as serious as it could get and that even if he feels better he'll never recover 100%.
There is no knowing why Lou Reed needed a liver transfer, however, Hepatitis B and C are diseases that can be commonly linked to drug culture. Reed was famous for writing and singing about the underbelly of NYC during the 60s and one of his most well known songs is "Walk on the Wild Side." Lou was last seen performing in March of 2012, but then he canceled several concerts. His most recent work is a 2011 collaboration with Metallica.
