Only the coolest man alive (at one time). Lead singer song writer for the Velvet Underground. Married to Laurie Anderson and major curmudgeon these days... His solo album "New York" is one of the best recordings ever to come out of the 90's although it was recorded and released in 1989. Aug 5, 2010

I believe various DLFA members were involved in "developing" this prime piece of real estate. This would include Bill Russell, Rich Bechler,Brian Sime,Rob Lemon,Steve S.,and of course Dave "hammer case" Salisbury(aka sloshbury). Hammer case Dave came up with the excellent name for the boulder as he was way into Lou Reed and martinis ......still is. This boulder was featured in some great nite time sessions including one where we were caught off guard by the DNR and one Bill R when asked for his ID handed his drivers license over to the ranger then turned and ran off into the "NITE" !
What was he thinking? This set off a summers long search by the rangers to catch old Bill , who would sneak around the lake in various disguises and hide in the trunks of our cars when being driven into the lake. They eventually caught him at a major party on the north shore that fall which also resulted in them staking out the CCC parking lot the next day in order to apprehend one serious criminal known as Prunes. Peace and martinis, Steve S. May 16, 2013

It's a sad day for rock and roll......Just found out Lou Reed passed away. As mentioned before we use to listen to Lou quite abit ! Rock and Roll Animal is a great kick ass album . Guaranteed to keep all croutons well away from us when we had it cranked at full volume ,which as luck would have it was the best way to listen to it!
R.I.P. Lou Reed , thanks for kickin our butts. Drink to Bleed with Lou Reed !!!
