Lou Reed – solo artist, vocalist and guitarist for the Velvet Underground, and rock legend – has died at the age of  71.

Peter Noble, Reed’s publicist, confirmed the star’s death but has not released any details as of Sunday evening.

“The world has lost a fine songwriter and poet. I’ve lost my ‘school-yard buddy,’ ” Velvet Underground violist/keyboardist John Cale tweeted.

“We have lost a true visionary and creative leader, and his groundbreaking work will forever hold its rightful place in music history,” said Neil  Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy.

More details will follow as they are released.
