Corruptions of Christianity: Catholicism

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. But beware of men: But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be ; and that which is done is that which shall be done: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm , and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Unlimited Submission to Government " here at creationliberty. Let no man deceive you by any means: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it ; -Ephesians 5: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive ; -Ephesians 4: Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

The words of the LORD are pure words: Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils ; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats [e. Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear [falsely swear] thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all ; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils ; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry , and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness [i. Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening [ferocious animal hungry for prey] and wickedness [sin].

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth ; -2 Timothy 2: And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city , which reigneth over the kings of the earth. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: But with many of them God was not well pleased: Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them ; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed , and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say. For we being many are one bread, and one body: Behold Israel after the flesh: What say I then?

But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods , and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; -Exodus But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. I tell you, Nay [No] ; but rather division: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ ; -2 Corinthians Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit , neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth ; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil , who are taken captive by him at his will.

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. These were more noble [virtuous, excellent] than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Not of works, lest any man should boast. But this man [i. Jesus Christ] , after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God ; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

The fear of man bringeth a snare: Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven ; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life , and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him , If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way , which leadeth unto life , and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Mormonism Corruptions of Christianity: Introduction Chapter 1 - Catholic History: A Pagan Foundation Chapter 2 - Purgatory: A Deadly Oxymoron Chapter 6 - Idolatry: Throne of an Antichrist Chapter 8 - Catholic Inquisition: I thought we were going to study the Bible.

I spent three pounds sterling buying a Bible, and I thought this is where we were really going to spend our time. I found that the first year was all rituals, devotions And then, we did start to study intently every day in the second year , but it was the philosophy of Aristotle, a pagan years before Christ. To this day, priests are still trained in the philosophy of Greece. And then, we studied all the philosophies of the world. Then we started, after that, four years of theology of the famous Thomas Aquinas.

We did study the introduction to some of the books of the Bible, but always under the authority of the [Catholic] Church. So it was not anything to do with the Word ; it was to do with Catholicism. Constantine's personal advisor, Lactantius, documented more details about this symbol: The bridge in his rear was broken down. At sight of that the battle grew hotter. Purgatory is an attractive doctrine to many people because it eliminates God's Judgment.

It's interesting to note that people generally don't read things out of context in their everyday reading, like newspapers, books fiction or non-fiction , etc; but when it comes to the Bible, for some reason, everyone seems to shut off their contextual reading habits. For example, if one were reading George Washington's famous phrase, " Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes ," one could interpret that to mean many things.

Someone might think, "Wow, what a sick, twisted, bloodthirsty psychopath! Washington must have wanted his soldiers to look their enemies right in the face when they died! Agents of the Catholic Church Billy Graham died and Robert Schuller died , both were huge supporters of the Catholic Church, and worked together with Catholics on a regular basis.

Because of their Catholic-like beliefs, they both openly supported the Catholic ecumenical movement, and even went one step further to state that those who don't believe on the name of Jesus are still a part of Christ's church and are going to heaven. Read " Wolves in Costume: Billy Graham " here at creationliberty. At this point, it should be easy for Christians to see this is a doctrine of devils.

It's quite fitting that Schuller said there was a " wideness in God's mercy , " because God's Word tells us it is the path to hell that is wide: Perjury lying under oath , forgery creating false documents , and lying.

Killing a layman a person not member of the Catholic clergy. Dead man excommunicated I am still unsure what this meant at the time. Nun for frequent fornication, in or out of the nunnery. All incest, rapes, adultery and fornication committed by a Priest, with his relations, nuns, married women, virgins, and his concubines, with the joint pardon of all his whores, at the same time. The wages of sin is death, but how can one pay for death without death? How can one pay for his eternal punishment without suffering eternal punishment?

Therefore those who die believing in the works they've done will be thrown into hell and the lake of fire. Person 1 makes claim X. Person 2 restates claim X in a distorted way and attacks it.

Therefore, claim X is false. Again, Voitila did not put his faith in Christ, but rather, he put his faith in Mary. Because he left his soul in the hands of Mary, he never saw the Kingdom of Heaven, but despite the fact that he died with his hopes in false doctrines, Catholics still highly revere this pagan man.

Voitila continued to say that when he went to judgment not purgatory? So I keep this continuously in my mind, entrusting that decisive moment to the Mother of Christ and of the Church - to the Mother of my hope. Gate of Heaven p. Catholics interpret this to mean that Peter has ultimate authority to decide who stays and who goes in heaven, which is why so many people have seen the cartoons with Peter standing outside the gates of heaven allowing people entrance or rejecting them, but this is not anywhere close to the doctrine that's being taught in verse Notice I Did Not Use The "Pebble" Argument Most often, in various leavened websites, ministries, and church buildings, they will claim that Peter's name in Greek petros just means a "little rock" or "pebble," but he's not the big rock that is Jesus.

This is a useless argument that carries no weight with Catholics, and more importantly, it's an argument that employs the Greek scam; a method by which preachers who mostly don't know any Greek use a Greek grammar dictionary as evidence, rather than the context of the Word of God.

Read " The 'Original Greek' Scam " here at creationliberty. There is no need to fall into the trap of using the so-called "original Greek," which is the basis of corrupt new-age bible versions, when the Word of God has been perfectly preserved, with words defined by their context, in the King James Bible.

For those Catholics who still may not believe that an anathema from the Catholic Church is a condemnation to hell, perhaps they'll listen to Pope Boniface VIII 8th, Pope Pius X 10th, Guiseppe Sarto, stated: Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ that speaks. Does the Pope accord a favor or pronounce an anathema?

It is Jesus Christ who pronounces the anathema or accords the favor. So that when the Pope speaks, we have no business to examine—we have only to obey. We have no right to criticize his decisions or discuss his commands. Therefore every one who would wear the crown [rulers of nations] ought to submit himself to Divine Right. Union of minds, therefore, requires, together with a perfect accord in the one faith, complete submission and obedience of will to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff, as to God Himself.

Do not be called 'Master'; you have but one master, the Messiah' Mt These expressions, nevertheless, have evolved out of a long tradition, becoming part of common usage. One must not be afraid of these words either. The Catholic Church accepts truth and holiness from all false religions. The Catholic Church's ecumenical push towards a one-world religion is the purpose for them accepting all religions into one unit; claiming they are all going to heaven.

There were snake worshipers, fire worshipers, spiritists, animists, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, North American witchdoctors ; I watched in astonishment as they walked to the microphone to pray. The pope said they were all praying to the same god, and that their prayers were creating a spiritual energy that was bringing about a new climate for peace.

Peter's Church in Assisi, and with his monks, to have a Buddhist worship ceremony there while Shintoists chanted and rang their bells outside. The prophesied world religion is in the process of being formed before our eyes, and the Vatican is the headquarters of the movement.

You will not find any Biblical justification for anyone claiming to be of Christ to worship in a mosque, tell the Muslims they're worshiping the same 'god', and then kiss the Qur'an. The popes of this world have little understanding of the Word of God, and I pray the Lord Jesus Christ could use this article to help a Catholic that has a humbled heart that wants to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion of Terror " here at creationliberty. The 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon wrote the following, which I think is well-stated: No, these popes die, and are not!

And how could the Church live if its head were dead? The true Head ever lives and the Church ever lives in Him! John Badby was burned at the stake by the Catholic Church in because he said, " it was impossible that any priest should make the body of Christ , by words sacramentally spoken. Grinton Berry Edition, , p. But God bless you, and give you grace to repent your wicked doings, and let all men beware of your bloody church. A Greater Persecution Than The Inquisition Is Coming For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

The worst persecution and tribulation of the born again Christians is coming in the final days, and it will be more extreme than what we've seen so far. I am convicted to express my grief and disgust with the typical church buildings around just about every corner of America, in which they cannot sanctify themselves from the most simple things in times of peace in which they have a choice, but then proclaim in hypocrisy that when the days come where the devilish Papal entity will be ripping people's guts out, that they will stand with Christ.

The Devil's Church " here at creationliberty. The Lord Jesus Christ warned us that these men and women, who are lukewarm while hypocritically claiming that they are not lukewarm , are false converts that have never been born again, but rather, they just play church, and they are the seeds who fell among the stones: This is serious, and we ought to take it seriously because for most people in this world, hell and the lake of fire awaits.

Peter, in person, should preach all the articles of Holy Scripture, and only deny the pope's authority , power, and primacy, and say, that the pope is not the head of all Christendom, they would cause him to be hanged. Yea, if Christ himself were again on earth, and should preach, without all doubt the pope would crucify him again.

Therefore let us expect the same treatment; but better is it to build upon Christ, than upon the pope. But those who are of this opinion do not consider that they bring the same charge of presumption against Paul himself, after whom we speak and whose language we adopt I shall briefly show that they [Paul's words in II Thess.

John Knox said the same thing about the papacy when he wrote about " that tyranny which the pope himself has for so many ages exercised over the church. I could prove the same by many other scriptures, old writers, and strong reasons. There are many people, especially Catholics, who will be offended by the title of this chapter, but keep in mind that this is not something I write or say lightly. Though nuns are typically called the "brides of Christ" by the Catholic Church, they are actually marrying themselves to the Devil and his doctrines.

They born again out of the Catholic Church. Many of them testified that nuns were commonly taking psychotropic drugs, which are drugs that affect the mind, emotions, and other basic behaviors. Often, these women testified that nuns were taking Valium or Xanax to calm their anxiety because of the harsh, unbiblical living conditions and work load they suffered on a daily basis.

Taking these drugs makes people feel drunk, have lack of coordination which is dangerous in some situations, like those in the medical field , and they can cause extreme irritation, dry mouth, fever, difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, slurred speech, stomach cramps, delayed reflexes, depression, nausea, seizures, bladder control problems, blurred vision, dementia, and worst of all, addiction. Rita Riel entered a Catholic boarding school in Massachusetts; specifically a section divided for "juvenists," which were girls who were training to be nuns.

Being there only a two weeks, she knew she wanted to leave and return to her father's home because it was a secluded life of being little seen, never heard, and living in constant fear. Riel wrote home to her parents to let them know she no longer wanted to attend, but three days later, the head mistress walked in with her letter, unsealed, in hand, pressuring this young girl to stay, and later, even threatened her by saying that if she left and did not become a nun, God would curse her and punish all her children if she ever got married.

The Bible does not say there is a nun righteous. For example, Jo Kaminski was baptized into the Catholic Church at age 19, and sought to become a nun: I thought if I were a sister, God would give me a little more consideration at judgment.

Nuns are called 'spiritual brides' of Christ. That sounded pretty safe to me. No Bible Study For Nuns As we've already read in previous chapters, the priests and bishops of the Catholic Church discourage studying the Bible because they know that understanding the doctrines of Christ ends up leading people away from the Catholic Church.

It is for the sake of those who are oppressed by wicked men that God promised He would preserve His Word for us: There is this unspoken presupposition that if a woman wears the garb of a nun, she understands Scripture, but this is not the case.

Many of the testimonies I've read from former Catholics demonstrate another common theme that, though they may have quoted some Bible verses in their prayers, they didn't understand those verses and they never studied the Word of God; rather, they studied the words of pagan philosophers, Catholic canon, and quotes from famous Catholics throughout the centuries.

As aforementioned former medical nun Lolly Harding put it: I never read the Bible. There were Scriptures that are incorporated in the mass, of course, and in prayers and prayer books that we used, but I never studied the Bible, and I didn't even know where the books of the Bible were. They were announced as the readings were done, but I really did not know the Word of God.

And then, we did start to study intently every day in the second year, but it was the philosophy of Aristotle, a pagan years before Christ. So it was not anything to do with the Word; it was to do with Catholicism. Commit verses like Rom 3: As we've already seen from other testimonies, they monitor all communication going in and out. You are robotized to think, act, talk and do the same thing, all at the same time. It is the aspect of fear that keeps girls in the convent, fear of leaving the 'one true Church', as the Catholics like to say, and possibly risking your chance to get to heaven.

You are never taught to ask Christ for help or to give thanks to Him. The researchers of the study noted that they underestimated the figures, rather than overestimate them; meaning that the numbers are likely higher than this. In the Garden of Olives I shed Ultimately, Vatican authorities care more about tradition and their own well-being than they care for abused children.

Its pockets were so deep that Mexicans sometimes called the order the 'Millionarios de Cristo. I fixed the problem. They were confused about sex. You have to love your priest ; I mean, he was a nice person, he appeared to be a nice person. You love all your priests. He took us swimming; he used to make milkshakes for us We were the youngest kids in the whole school to begin with, and so we felt—I think we probably flaunted it whenever we saw the high school kids.

Like, 'We're the little kids and we're special. He likes us better. All the children loved him. There was no reason not to like him; he treated us well and was very kind and gentle. So if the priest chose me, that it was, in fact, God choosing me. You wanted to be your best, and do your best, and to be picked was an honor—a huge honor.

You would usually need to lie, somehow, to get off the lap; at least, I did. And then, I would have this guilt because, one, I had no idea what sex was, so I had no idea that that's what he was doing to me. All I knew was, I didn't like it, and it gave me a very 'no' feeling.

And that wasn't uncomfortable at the time because, you know, I kissed my uncles on the cheek, things like that. Then, as time went on, he would offer us these treats and then he would do this [tapped finger on lips] The progression was very slow, that it wasn't all of sudden one day saying, 'Oh wait, this is wrong', because what he did yesterday kind of felt a little uncomfortable, but 'it couldn't be wrong'.

His rule was that if he found you, he would wrestle with you. He put me on the ground and he felt me up. He also went underneath my clothes , and didn't tell anybody My initial reaction was that I must have done something wrong; because that felt bad, then I must have done something bad to get him to do that. To see the hidden results of the Paraclete experiment to rehabilitate and recirculate rapists in the Catholic priesthood, let's take a closer look at Tony Walsh, a Catholic priest that would end up causing a lot of turmoil in Ireland.

In , Walsh was appointed to Ballyfermot, a suburb of Dublin, and became well-known among Catholics as a very talented Elvis Presley impersonator. As soon as Walsh showed up at "Our Lady of the Assumption Church," he was put in charge of the altar boys. Within two days, Walsh had his first complaints made against him by the parents of a young boy. The documentary goes on to focus on Damian Jurd, a man who killed himself in out of grief over the repeated sexual assault he endured as a young boy from a Catholic priest.

The media was only legally allowed to call the priest "Father F," but I don't have the same restrictions; thus, I can tell you his name is John J.

Jurd's parents testified that they didn't know Farrell was raping their son; Damian suddenly went from being a well-behaved child to a mean boy getting into trouble, and eventually ran away from home and got himself involved in criminal activity. The golden cup of the Catholic Mass is the cup of devils. For example, Jerusalem is recognized worldwide as a spiritual city, and is often called "The Holy City;" in the Bible, the Jews were chosen by God to represent Him and His Word in their nation, and in this city.

The Jews committed fornication with other gods, and have become as a harlot Isa 1: In the same manner, Mecca is a so-called "holy city" according to Muslims, but it does not rest on seven hills either. I still find it hard to believe that Lou Reed played on my solo records. He let me play his guitars on tour.

He took me to meet his family and friends. He gave me the beautiful gift of his friendship. There was a lot of love between us. Sure, Lou could be short in interviews, but there was another side to him that few journalists have either experienced or admitted.

For example, one day after a soundcheck, I met a young woman who could not walk. Her mom was pushing her in a wheelchair.

But she wondered if we could play it earlier in the set, as she and her mom had to leave early to catch the last train home. I mentioned it to Lou at dinner and without hesitation he asked me to find out where they lived, then he hired a limousine to drive them home, which was in another town, so they could watch the whole show.

He really, truly felt for people who were dealt tough cards and he made time for them. I was about to go onstage about a year ago when Lou called me. He told me they had found some cancer on his liver and knew I had been through this.

He asked if he could call me if he needed to. It was an honour. From then on, I was there with Lou in person whenever I could be. I knew the ropes. The fun we could have had. On tour, Lou had a pre-show ritual. When he was ready he would extend his hand out in front of him. We would then each put our hands on top of his.

He liked to be connected with his band, and we were a team. It was a beautiful night in Dresden, Germany. A few blocks away, a big fireworks show began right in the middle of the song. I was worried that it would distract Lou and annoy him. Stars that never last forever, Stars that burn out, and disappear, The cheapest imitation of God, The cheapest imitation of God, A make believe sun,. It was just amazing. We all looked at each other, knowing this was truly special.

Many of the band and crew had tears in their eyes. After the show, as I always did, I went to check in with Lou in his dressing room. I found him sitting, crying into his hands. Those songs are so personal. I really gave everything I had tonight. And now, of course, an incredible, painful loss has evened things out. I cherish every minute I spent with Lou. He was a great artist, a great man and a great friend and mentor. Recently, I went for a walk by a peaceful river. A lone hawk glided overhead and then flew by me again, closer and lower.

I comforted myself by thinking that it was Lou, watching me. He had turned himself into a majestic bird. Lou was cool enough to be able to do that. I have so many memories of times with Lou, I could go on at length; he was my friend and an inspiration. I called him Sensei, a title I do not use lightly. We spent the evening jamming together, comparing gadgets and were friends from then on. I am a guitar player but he asked me to accompany him a few times on tour, looking after his Guitars.

On other occasions he would call to tell me something special was happening and invite me along, like the time he was performing Metal Machine Music in Venice. I had told him what an inspiration it had been to me some years before and he remembered. Then there was the time we were on tour, mostly acoustic, in Europe and had arrived in Granada, Spain to play in the Playwright Garcia L'Orca's museum gardens.

I got a message from Lou to meet him in the garden early that afternoon. He taught me a secret chord. Another phone call from Lou. He was playing at the Liss Ard festival and we spent a few days hanging out together, including naming a tree each on the Liss Ard Estate. Everybody is here and there at the same time. This is something I've learned when I worked with Brion Gysin. I came across Lou Reed a few times in my life. But I met Lou only in Laurie introduced us because she new my Lizieres project.

We met because of Tai Chi and also because we shared the same love for "intentions". Laurie took those pictures that day. You can see Lou as he was: I have a few memories right now. In this photo taken by Kari, Lou is asking me things about Tai Chi and energy.

Lou was born in Like my brother Gordon. By the grace of Laurie I have found a brother again. He was like a "grand frere, un frattello grande". Any time, day or night, he would answer my messages. He took risks for us. Also the risk to make mistakes. It is important to make risks, this is how we grow deeper.

But we do not have to make the same mistakes all the time. Just enough to learn. Lou was a real master of life. He wanted us to be REAL. Real in friendship, Real in Love. To learn and teach. He was full of curiosity. Another time we spoke about Antonin Artaud.

Lou was so intense every time on any subject. He wanted every moment to be unique. Once we went to a basement of a hotel and we practiced. He wanted strength and energy. I told him "To go faster you have to slow down. I told him how to liquify. He was suddenly so relaxed.

He was learning new things at the speed of light. Last night at the Bardo, I told the story of Lou's illness and coming to Cleveland and willingness to fight for his life and how we went through it together. You're all his friends, so you can understand much of what I'm going to tell you. When a patient shows up, you start to look for something, in common.

I don't want Long Island to get dissed all night long! And we both really enjoyed thinking outside the box and teaching young people what we learned. So when Lou first came he was very sick, as you all know. A part of what this liver disease does is take part of your mind, part of your emotion and before the transplant, Lou have to come to Cleveland on and off to get certain treatments.

He was getting sicker and sicker and a little crabbier and crabbier as time went along. One time he wanted to get back to New York really, really badly and he called me and said "Charlie, please come let me out of here, I want to go home!! I'll walk over to say good bye". On my way over, I got a phone call that a liver had materialized almost out of seemingly thin air, for Lou. I think I have a liver for you. I said "no and I think I have a liver for you and as soon as it gets here, I'll take a look at it.

When can we go!!? I said "In a couple of hours". And off we went. Now I'll tell you - this is the first time I ever sewn to the rhythm of my patient's music. And I'll tell you, sewing to "Walking on the Wild Side" ain't too bad. It was a beautiful operation and after that, this operation takes the measure of a man, and Lou measured up in every way, and more. And as the encephalopathy, as the mind clears and his energy returned, we started to talk and by the way, Lou not only talked a lot but he was a really insightful and really good listener.

So we begin to share things about our lives - about our mentors - I got to learn about Andy Warhol-He got to know about my mentors - Our dreams-our desires to teach people what we know -Our love for the air-for the sun- and the waters of East Hampton-Just breathing the air-For great food. And we were able to share the summer in East Hampton together and it's something I'll never forget. It was extremely special. And I learned recently, that Lou in his poetic best, and I'll never ever forget this said, "You know Charlie is like a new old friend.

And my wife Erica reminded me tonight that no matter how complicated, or difficult or fun the conversation was, it always ended with Lou saying, " I love you Charlie" and I would say, " I love you Lou. We met in on a record of artists doing Kurt Weill music. Well, we were in touch on and off over the years. I would say we were friends. But then, starting in with the album Ecstasy until now, I became his faithful companion and producer, advisor, went to everything with him, and so much happened in those years.

So many triumphs and frustrations. So patently offensive that one wishes to take some kind of physical vengeance on the artist that perpetrates them. So all those years later, with Susan Feldman at St. That was such a hopeful, amazing moment. When I handed that record in they wanted to put me in jail.

And it always happened that way. He never really got a break in that way. It was always very venomous when he would put out a new record. In particular, the Lulu record with Metallica. Now, this is true: I could not believe that. But really the best thing with Lou, the best thing, for all of us who had the chance, was listening to music with him.

He was someone who would just cry, at the right note, all the time. There was just nothing like it. We were here about a year and a half ago, doing a benefit for the Jazz Foundation, and went to the Apollo. A lot of artists like the blues and this and that, but that night Lou had this different thing. And then his hit single a number of years earlier, you know the chorus: We had this radio show on Sirius called New York Shuffle.

We did about 80 of them, two hours each, where we played each other records. Lou was really interested in new stuff. He just loved the show so much and we just loved doing it. One time we were having dinner with Peter Gabriel and Lou was gushing about the show. He said this was his favorite record ever made. He said this was everything he tried to play on the guitar to get this style.

He loved Ornette and Don Cherry. The other guy who he loved so much, who he was so protective of, was Jimmy Scott. He always said he has the voice of an angel, that he can break your heart. Dion was doing a show there. In between, they had very strange bathrooms at St. One of the church representatives came out, looked at this, and turned into the Wolfman. Lou inflated to be like the Hulk. Very few words were said. It was just a beautiful, beautiful night and I can still see the goosebumps on him.

When I woke up this morning, there was a tweet from Lou, The Door. It made me want to say hello; I didn't. And now I never will be able to again. Almost no one believed Lou had it in him to make another great record. And then Lou recorded New York in , one of his most commercially successful records ever. When I took over as president of Reprise, Lou decided to stay with me and transfer over. He was my favorite artist on the label. Lou and I were both born in Brooklyn and both grew up within a few miles of each other in Nassau County, him in Freeport, me in Valley Stream and Roosevelt.

His song "Heroin" had a gigantic impact on my life. Fortunately for me, I got over it relatively quickly. Lou had a bad reputation as a mean, nasty guy. I never saw that side of him-- and I hung out with him a lot, even after I retired from Warner Bros. He was always a sweet, loving, caring, empathetic person-- as well as brilliant, interesting and unique.

I cherish the times we spent together and thank God and Seymour for letting that happen for me. This morning two random things came to my mind that I can share. One had me sitting at a table at the White House with either Lugar or Hatch-- I can't remember which-- while Lou sang "Dirty Blvd" and the senator danced in his seat. I just checked the guest list … it was Lugar. He had never played there before and wondered if anyone would understand his lyrics.

The place was sold out and going crazy and it seemed like every person could recite every single lyric to every single song. The next day we went to an art museum and I showed Lou a Francis Bacon painting. He was unfamiliar with Bacon but loved it. I told him I was sure I could talk Bacon into doing a painting for his next album cover. Lou was blown away. When I got back to my office a few days later, I found out Bacon had died the day Lou and I were looking at his work.

I don't know how Lou died. I don't know anything more than you do. I called his cell phone when Andy Paley told me he had heard Lou died. Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died today.

The cause of his death has not yet been released, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May. As a restlessly inventive solo artist, from the Seventies into the s, he was chameleonic, thorny and unpredictable, challenging his fans at every turn. Glam, punk and alternative rock are all unthinkable without his revelatory example. Three chords and you're into jazz. After college, he worked a staff songwriter for the novelty label Pickwick Records where he had a minor hit in with a dance-song parody called "The Ostrich".

In the mid-Sixties, Reed befriended Welsh musician John Cale, a classically trained violist who had performed with groundbreaking minimalist composer La Monte Young. Reed and Cale formed a band called the Primitives, then changed their name to the Warlocks. With a stark sound and ominous look, the band caught the attention of Andy Warhol, who incorporated the Velvets into his Exploding Plastic Inevitable.

But we were all wearing black anyway. After splitting with the Velvets in , Reed traveled to England and, in characteristically paradoxical fashion, recorded a solo debut backed by members of the progressive-rock band Yes. Reed spent the Seventies defying expectations almost as a kind of sport. But in the Eighties, he began to mellow. Three years later, the Velvet Underground reunited for a series of successful European gigs.

Reed and Morales divorced in the early Nineties. Within a few years, Reed began a relationship with musician-performing artist Laurie Anderson.

The two became an inseparable New York fixture, collaborating and performing live together, while also engaging in civic and environmental activism. They were married in The once-decadent rocker became an avid student of T-ai Chi, even bringing his instructor onstage during concerts in In , he released an ambient album titled Hudson River Wind Meditations.

Lou loved to talk about sound; he was obsessed with it and a perfectionist. We only had two days of rehearsal and both shows were already sold out with extra late shows added, sold within 24 hours. Lou decided to bring Sarth along last minute; he met him at Tai-Chi practice, played with him at home and wanted his electronic sounds for this concert. Already earlier in New York Lou had told me that he was getting tired of writing songs, being more interested in doing instrumental and electronic music.

He had shown me his electronic set-up and played me some electronic demos he worked on. Now here we were—three musicians, who had never played together as a group, not even knowing in which stylistic direction this would go. These doubts were unnecessary; the concerts were a great success. Our intense walls of noise got standing ovations. We were so pleased with the outcome that we decided to release the shows on CD and continued to work as MM3. The next shows were in April in New York with John Zorn sitting in the second show for some fierce saxophone battles.

Our shows would sometimes be dark ambient, other times full frontal noise assaults, and another time freely played rock music with melodies and feedbacks — or all the above and more. He always was looking for new modes of expression, always ready to push boundaries. He never looked back, never settled for repetition of what had worked in the past.

Finally having a group —this flexible, this free— was very satisfying for him. MM3 never performed the piece itself. Although we recreated it with 4 guitars and amps as onstage sound installation opening during our tours, sometimes playing as long as 60 minutes before we came onstage to start the set. As teenager MMM had summarized for me all the things I loved: It took me more than 20 years to make this dream a reality, by now having done performances of MMM with 5 different ensembles in various countries, continuously revising and refining my transcription and arrangement each time.

Later I came to understand that Lou took the rejection of it by fans and press alike very personal. This piece was a serious piece of love, love of sound and the guitar. Even more so came MM3 as a late artistic confirmation.

He had been right all along. MMM had come home. Completely unexpected for him, a younger generation of musicians and audience now got it. On following tours with his newly revised rock band, including Sarth and I, he would play MM3 recordings before and after shows.

These concerts now included more noisy and free elements, embedded within a rock context. Every show was different, each night any of the songs we did were being done differently.

When he had an idea, he would try to communicate it to his band onstage, even if it had never been rehearsed before. There was no safety net on stage for the band — or him. He pushed his musicians out of their comfort zone, but he also expected them to challenge him. He loved this exchange of energy on stage, making each concert unique. Unclassified also applies to the person Lou Reed. The press paints the picture of him as the grumpy, aggressive rock icon, always in a bad mood.

As MM3 we did all interviews together. He hated stupid interviewers and empty questions. But he always fully engaged in knowledgeable questions about his music and politics. The grumpy side was surely one side of his character, at the same time protecting him from fan and tabloid vampirism. To his friends he could be a gentle, sensitive, and very generous person. He could be funny and a friend to hang with, discussing a wide range of topics or just watching a movie in a hotel room.

Lou really cared about the things he did. There was no time for half-assed things in his life, no place for it-is-kind-of-ok, no place for stupidity. He took making music very serious. For him this meant to go into details how each instrument and the band should sound, how things are being done, and he expected the same from the musicians he worked with.

He was always looking for personalities to work with—not just musicians, who can play their instruments. Music was something very personal to him and he needed a personal relationship to the musicians he played with.

This goes as far as the tech crew. He always mentioned them after each show, sometimes announcing every one of them by name, acknowledging their contribution to the show. Band and crew were like a family, at least for the duration of a tour and there were fights as well as laughter.

I will miss him as a great and inspiring musical collaborator, someone to butt heads with and a caring friend. I lost everything in I could not find a job and was able to survive for awhile by selling my possessions on a folding table covered with an Italian throw on Christopher St. A friend of mine who worked for Laurie told me they were looking for someone who could be trusted to care for Laurie and Lou's beloved Lolabelle - would I be interested. I was afraid of dogs but I needed a job.

I was starving and cold. I went for an interview with Lou at W. Lola was not there. I remember walking thru the flat thru a hallway into the kitchen where Lou was sitting in this fantastic tall leather chair. His assistant introduced us and I put my hand out to shake his. He took it and when I went to pull it back he held onto it and did not let go. He asked if I was an artist I am a writer actor director. He asked who my favorite writer was.

I have 2, Tennessee Williams and Delmore Schwartz. He fell back into his chair still holding my hand and a look of astonishment came over him. My mother worked at Syracuse University and I used to hang out on campus selling pot and hangin' out at Jabberwocky.

I met many students and faculty who spoke of him and shared his work with me from yesteryear. He asked me why I wanted the job and I told him my story. He asked me when I could start. He asked how I was dealing with losing everything I responded, the kindness of strangers That in many ways I am much happier than when I was wealthy. For like a gun is touch He then let go of my hand. I started the next day. I arrived and again Lola was not there. I waited with the assistant Lola entered and waltzed over to Lou.

As is Laurie, who upon entering W. I was not afraid. I spent many a night as Lola's health sadly became increasingly worse. The conversations between 2 insomniacs in the presence of spirit dog is treasured.

Lou googled me and came across my web site. I was taken aback that he took the time to view it. He had of course critique. In the end we find each other Lou was my Delmore That's Lou 's writing, from the early s, from Magic and Loss ; as always the words written down with no flowery stuff, no fancy footwork, no decorative touches, no metaphors, no showing off about his erudition, no bull shit, just cutting to the chase.

So I owe it to Lou, and to Laurie, and to Lola Belle and Will, their beloved pooches, and to Lou's mother, Toby, and his sister, Merrill, and to you, to cut to the chase, too. Why oh why people ask, would Andy Warhol, "Mr. Interviewer," have been this drawn to Lou, "Mr. We know that Andy was always interested in the kids who had their fingers on the pulse. And Andy was a ticket to something. But this was more than mutual exploitation. You could say it was love. Some say it was the beauty of the Velvet Underground.

Some say the music. I say the mind. Lou was the one whose use of language could match Andy's ability to hit the target in art. Maybe the only one ever.

The way Lou used words-in his work and in his life-there was never any fat, nothing to distract from the subject. Lou always credited 2 teachers Delmore Schwartz and Andy who he likened to graduate school. But the truth is Lou's umbilical chord must have been attached to a pen and an editing pencil when he was born and he probably would have written the way he did, no matter what.

It just nails it. We all need to think that there's a reason we meet who we do, so Lou, who had no problem with generosity, always thanked Andy as an influence. Not only did Lou never forget it-he couldn't he was born with it-but he never betrayed or double-crossed himself.

Therefore he never let his true audience down-the one he had all those years and the audiences that aren't born yet. Lou's life was constantly changing; he liked that and he liked good food--from the new world and the old. Nikki Russ Federman, whose family owns the fabled smoked salmon mecca, Russ and Daughters, on the lower East Side, told me that when she first met Lou at an event for Tibet House several years ago, he pursued her across the room to say, "Hi.

He was chemically incapable of it. And also to those who somehow might want him to, expect him to, push him to. Lou was, is, and always will be, concrete proof that there is still a way-despite all signs to the contrary-of being a real musician, a real artist, and a real human being.

A few years ago he asked me to go with him to the Grammies, where he was to get an award, for a video, I think. Within minutes of us sitting down, he said, "We're out of here. They asked, "Is he mad? He lived in the village most of his life, he loved to improvise, he had Ornette Coleman on his records, and he made LULU at the end of his life, a record which shocked just about everybody.

He had more courage than just about anybody I know. In when Lou made the record Berlin, Bob Ezrin produced it, it had this huge effect on me and I just thought someday I'd make a movie about that story. I didn't realize that he didn't go to Berlin and that it took place in New York.

I was making a different movie but he said that Susan Feldman wanted to do this at St. Ann's and he was ready to do it but I wasn't ready to make this movie that he wanted to make.

I was making another movie called The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Lou felt like I knew that record as well as he did, so I took all the paintings in my studio and he came over and said "'Hotel's got greenish walls and a bathroom in the hall' so these paintings are green and we can use these as the wall, and he called it the Berlin wall.

So we hung the couch in my studio from the ceiling and Hal and Bob and all the original people, Steve Hunter played on it, it was wild to see Lou play with the whole story of Berlin for the first time in 35 years and to actually film that first moment where he looked at everybody and they did that together. And there was an encore at the end, there was one song that I wanted him to do that was a favorite of mine.

We had this special relationship, he loved my father and he [my father] loved Havel, and Laurie and Lou were going to play in front of Havel and Bill Clinton. So my father was from Czechoslovakia and he took my dad with him and my father wore a tuxedo that said Jack Schnabel - Czech Republic and I wasn't there but Lou and Laurie took him there and he got to take his picture with Havel and Bill Clinton. Anyway, there's this song that he wrote called Rock Minuet and there's one thing he did, he covered an area of language and experience that I don't think anyone really touched.

I want to read this song to you. As a journalist, I was a little scared of him, because he was known to eat my tribe for lunch. Nevertheless, Lou was a culture hero who had a big, specific impact on my life. When Transformer appeared in , I was a college freshman in a world with virtually zero mainstream representation of gay life. One Sunday morning Laurie, Lou, and I took a cab to the Whitney to see the Biennial, accompanied by a young French publicist named Phillipe who was visiting from Paris.

When we arrived, though, there was a line halfway around the block. Lines like these are insurmountable for celebrities. Understanding this, Phillipe ran into the Museum and returned shortly afterwards with four passes. The show itself was so awful that we were ready to leave in twenty minutes. After a century of gestation, the anti-art wing of the art world has now reached critical mass, and the museums literally hang garbage on the walls.

We had lunch in a nearby cafe, and talked over plans for the rest of the day. Laurie wanted to go to Canal Street to work; both Lou and I were thinking of going home for a nap. He stared at his feet in a shy, beguiling way, and then looked up. I stood there dumbstruck.

Lou had just passed his seventieth birthday, and I was sixty-three. Was I going home to see his new Buddha and then take a nap with him? I've had a lot of names.

But today I am here as Bunny, my brother Lou's baby sister. I am broken hearted. Who thought Lou could leave us, could die? Who could picture no more of those phone calls Asking me what suntan lotion to use for a dog's stomach. Obsessing endlessly over the right kind of mattress to get for our mother the Lou Reed version - the most expensive one ever made. Recovering from a liver transplant, he'd perseverate over where to get the best cheese croissant like the one he gets in New York and then literally drive you to distraction Why doesn't Cleveland have stores that sell sugar-free Yogurt?

How could that person leave us? He was so profoundly alive.. No matter how far back I try to recall, I always adored my older brother. Maybe I imprinted on him, like a duckling on the big duck. As a child I would wait at the window to watch him walking home from school.

Being with him made me so happy. That devotion never changed. You probably all knew Lou as an adult. The tough, intimidating, eat journalists for lunch guy in the leather jacket and shades, the epitome of cool.

So let me remind you of the time that Lou was forced to babysit for me when I was about 7. At bed time, there's a gigantic spider in my room, an epic spider. I call for him to kill it, I cry, I beg. But no, Lou wouldn't do it. At Syracuse Lou was definitely cooler. He started a band, he had his own radio show. He reportedly libeled some student on his radio show; the kid's family tried to sue my father. And there were other extracurricular possibly illegal activities of which the university didn't approve.

I believe they tried to kick him out. But he was a genius; what could they do? He stayed and he graduated. So fast forward 40 years. Syracuse begs, he says yes, and the university honors him with a lavish fundraising dinner establishing a scholarship in his and Delmore Schwartz's names. Timothy's documentary about him is played; Bono speaks about him.

As Lou was accepting the award and speaking, he suddenly stopped. He looked directly at me and said, "Can you fucking believe this? It was a long trip to that full circle moment. Picture maybe 20 people in the audience. Picture not a lot of them liking it. But Lou was Lou. He couldn't have cared less. Maybe to protect me - or him - he instructed me to never ever tell anyone I was related to him.

So I took to telling anyone who asked "what was it like growing up with Lou? This seemed to satisfy him. Then there were those people who just didn't get who Lou Reed was. They'd naively ask me, "Has Lou brought home a Jewish girl to introduce to your parents.

When Lou left the Velvet Underground he came home to live with us in Freeport - his typing phase. Once he had signed with a record company, they started shooting the cover. I still remember the first one because it hung on my parent's wall for many years. It was a beautiful picture of Lou on a dune at the beach sitting next to our dog Seymoure. Well, the picture didn't get used, but it was a warm and wonderful shot.

Beaches and dogs - Lou's favorite combination forever. You know the rest. Lou never ever compromised. Even if he was wrong. Even if comprising might make his life infinitely easier. And as he was reminding you why you were wrong, he had that look in his eye, that twitch of his mouth that let you know a clever retort was coming. I remember when he spoke to the audience during a break in the filming of the "Berlin" performance. He recalled how the studio executives were aghast when he had submitted the album to him - couldn't he give the album a happier ending?

Lou answered, "I told them, what do you think - did Hamlet end happy? Even when he was so ill, the sense of humor survived. There were hard times.

He was suicidal, his friends told me. You have to speak to him. I called him, really said "what are you doing? Are you going to hurt yourself? I can't hurt myself with the Tai Chi swords. They are too dull. But he was scared - who wouldn't be? During that last hard year he worried aloud to me, "I don't want to be erased. I love my brother. He is in my heart. I know he is in your hearts also. I take comfort in knowing that with his beautiful and talented wife Laurie, he found the love of his life.

She brought him as much contentment and happiness as Lou Reed could possibly have. So in a way, he was fortunate. He died with the person he loved most in the world at the place he loved most in the world. And I know that Lou and my family are all grateful to Laurie, whose vision created this magnificent celebration of his life and a time for us all to come together and heal.

I thank her from the bottom of my heart. During October and November, my beloved brother died and then our mother, Toby, ten days later. I made the decision to tell my mother about Lou, even though she was completely non-responsive. I told her about the accolades, the world's reaction to Lou's death.

Out of her stupor, she sat up straight, opened her eyes wide, said a sentence of gibberish with great emotion, and fell back against the sofa.

As I left, she squeezed my shoulder, a final hug, something I hadn't experienced in years. Toby knew - and she left to join him. She went to join her adored son whom she yearned for and regretted letting down. It was meant to be. I am happy for her that she has let go and that she is at peace. But I miss having my brother.

Throughout my life I could never get enough of Lou - I always wanted more. One more conversation, one more sardonic comment. One more Lou Reed look. One more Lou Reed phone call.

I will feel that way for the rest of my life. He will not be erased. Yes, Lou, I really do fucking believe it. My name is Scott Richman and Lou was my friend and my tai chi brother and teacher. Lou the artist was fearless and unflinching, whether is was music, poetry, photography — a great storyteller — who provoked you to take the journey with him - no matter where it went, you were with him always, sadness and happiness — the dark and the light…the yin and yang.

Like Delmore Schwartz and Andy Warhol — in Lou met one of his greatest collaborators, friends and teachers - grand master Ren Guangyi. As Lou would say - everything he studied up until meeting Ren, paled in comparison - "Ren is the real deal, no joke". He became a world champion fighter, and teacher of the political leaders and government in china.

Master Ren came to the united stated with his wife in , where his first job was that of a Chinese restaurant delivery boy — that lasted 45 days — when a co-worker recognized master Ren from a martial arts magazine. This represented a breakthrough for Lou where his body became his greatest instrument, and where the pain, joy and power that you hear in his songs or read on the page, was now expressed in the person that stood before us.

Tai chi helped Lou gain a greater understanding of his physiology, of muscles, tendons, bones and movement, of balance and "energy" or chi - he tapped into the well spring that was always there and he would be generous and share this feeling with his friends, fans, and his tai chi family. Lou studied 2 -3 hours a day, 7 days a week with master Ren up until the last year or so. Lou was thrilled to bring Ren and tai chi with him around the world to over 55 countries, whether it was the Sydney Opera House, the Olympics in Italy, Carnegie Hall -- Lou was a master and he became Chen tai chi's greatest ambassador.

Lou wrote beautiful, original music that was inspired by his love for tai chi. Such was the devotion of his relationship with Grand Master Ren - that Master Ren designed a new tai chi form specifically for Lou Reed — the 21 form. Earlier - you saw a demonstration of the 21 form - the form created for urban living - where anyone can do it because it was designed to be practiced in a small space and like Lou's songs - it could be done beautifully slow or explosively fast with great "fajin" power and electricity.

It was and remains the 21 - and with good reason — it has great significance - 21 years ago that Laurie and Lou met, 21 movements of the form, the form we did in his last days in his pool in long island, 21 - the final thing Lou did before he passed on the last Sunday morning in October. Master Lou and Laurie -- this is for you - with much love, loyalty and respect.

Your tai chi family. You loved coffee ice cream,anchovies and hot and sour soup You loved muscle,the definition of power and strength of the body You loved fighting, combat, the sweet science and the gift of gab You loved wertheimer white wine spritzers, apple strudel and diet coke You loved to sleep anywhere anytime Your heart was as big as the sky.

You loved the ocean, the waves and swimming with the stars You loved your dogs, playing with them and handling them with rough love You loved lavender, the sweet pungent smell of french perfume and woodsy leather You loved Nathan's grilled hot dogs and thin crust pizza only the cheese and sauce of course You loved the white space, saw beauty in the emptiness and found positive in the negative Your eyes were as bright as the sun.

Talk is cheap, what matters is emotion in action Push it to edge, follow your heart and be true to your art What can I do? Don't make me figure it out for you. As a young boy in the 60's growing up in the New Jersey suburbs I was, I suppose appropriately so, shielded from anything but AM music and thus unaware of anything cool or hip outside of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, or for that matter Fiddler on the Roof and Barbara Streisand.

Every teenager Lou's age at the time in my neighborhood either was drafted and off to Vietnam or dodged it and became a hippie. I couldn't have known of the Velvet Underground and what it would mean to me later in life. Fast forward 5 years, early 70's- realizing my scrawny body was not going to make it in sports, I took up guitar in order to try to attract girls. My baby brother Scott at this time was infatuated with Jim Morrison and the Doors and aside from Pro Wrestling, spent all his time reading his poetry and listening to their music.

This fascination with the literate side of rock n roll was different than mine, which concentrated on guitar technique and song structure. In while in college I first heard "Rock n Roll Animal".

I was late to the party but blown away by the raw energy. I gave my brother the album and gone were the Doors.

Lou replaced Jim and anything Lou did or for that matter anybody who came after i. Modern Lovers, Iggy, Television became for my brother the center of his attention. Now Scott was turning me on to more of Lou's music and the Velvets.

By the early 80's I discovered in Lou's songs the eternal connection to the collective feelings of love and the detached observations of a whole other world than mine. The connection was that of an older brother I never had or cousin telling these stories. I realized something very special in that close connection. That plus the fact that his guitar playing and understanding of its role in balls to the wall Rock n Roll always held my attention and desire to imitate.

Over the next 2 decades my brother, cousins, and friends would catch Lou's performances in the NYC area any chance we could. Watching the joy of his performances and the ever-growing song catalogue always left me filled with extra energy. Never a throwaway tune. Rock as an art form was his domain. When Scott told me he met Lou and thought he could help him in the fledgling digital media world I was quite happy that this would be a mutually satisfying friendship. I started Tai Chi classes soon thereafter and this changed my life.

I now physically understood the pathways of energy I had learned while studying Acupuncture. As a pain management physician this revolutionized my practice and I soon found myself recommending Master Ren to everybody. Lou was continually amazed at the benefits of Tai Chi and was always available to help those of us learning new positions within the forms.

He had a remarkable depth of understanding of the fighting applications as well. That generosity of spirit spilled over also to his world of rock stardom as he would invite his Tai Chi brethren to performances. I will always cherish the memories when Scott and I would travel with his band on tour in Europe. I had an inside view of all the work that went into a performance and could appreciate the less than glamorous side of a rock tour. Lou's professionalism and perfectionism were a manifestation of the deep care he felt for his fans.

At one show on the "Berlin" tour, after Scott and I did form 21 with Lou backstage for a pre show warmup, Lou asked me what I thought was the reason for all the preparation, set design, London Girls choir, etc. Why would these people travel the continent with Lou…….. As I then sat on stage and listened to Lou sing "Caroline Says" the pain, angst, regrets, of past romances, break ups, etc came flooding from that suppressed place in the subconscious that I thought could only be expressed by literary giants such as Shakespeare or Dostoyevsky.

The critics didn't get it. Berlin, as Lou said, was a metaphor for Division…. That is the transformative power of Lou Reed's rock n roll and it will live forever. Lou came into my life, not on a pedestal, but at ground level.

For a guy who was famous for being grouchy, he sure was sweet. He saw it all. And I love you anyway. Forgive the transposition, but he made me forget myself, and think I was someone else, someone good. Lou was a magician, the proof not just in the songs, but also in the way people experienced life around him. Sometimes I felt like I was in a special, synchronous orbit with him, way above where I was supposed to be living. A slice of pizza at midnight after dinner in the West Village.

Watching the sky as the millennium passed by us on a rooftop in Marrakech. About 15 years ago, I had been working for six months on a series of photographs that were so abstract they hardly existed. He was stone cold. Fuck everyone else until that day comes. He told me to listen to it—if I could stand it—and that it almost destroyed his career.

On NPRs Fresh Air program today, Lou was commemorated by his previous long-time publicist, Bill Bentley, in a report entitled, 'Never Back Down', who aptly described Lou as a "Rock & Roll Warrior".
