Want a piece of the late Lou Reed? You can have it thanks to an upcoming online auction at eBay.com.
According to Reed's still-active Facebook page, "many pieces" of his music gear will be auctioned throughout the summer, with new items posted every day. Among those listed so far are Kurzweil PC2X and Yamaha P-80 keyboards and a Pendulum SPS-1 Stereo Preamp.
The Facebook message says that all of the equipment was "used by Reed and his bands" and explains that, "Over the past thirty years, Lou Reed amassed a large collection of equipment in support of his many tours. While all of his most important guitars, amps, and effects will be kept by Sister Ray Enterprises for his archive, there are many pieces of musical gear and road cases that need to be sold...The proceeds will go towards the work that is underway to develop the Lou Reed Archive."
Reed died on October 27 at the age of 71. Happy bidding...
