Reed died of liver disease
The world was shocked when it was announced that legendary rocker Lou Reed had passed away on Sunday (Oct 26th). However, the cause of death wasn’t revealed at the time the announcement was made.
The New York Times reports that Reed passed away from liver disease at his home on Long Island, NY on Sunday.
Dr. Charles Miller of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio performed a liver transplant on Reed earlier this year and was treating Reed when he was admitted back to the hospital last week.
Dr. Miller says Reed decided to return home when the doctors could no longer treat his condition, “We all agreed that we did everything we could.”
