As you should know by now, the legendary Lou Reed passed away yesterday. As you can expect, many tributes and live covers will be on the way over the next week or so, as there should be.

I’m proud to say that Arctic Monkeys have joined in on this, covering Lou’s infamous “Walk On The Wild Side” today during their show at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

It’s safe to say that they did the song justice. What a great tribute. I think Lou would have been proud.

Not much more I need to say than that, as you will be blown away by their cover. Watch it below.
