It has been confirmed that Lou Reed, who passed away at his home on Long Island on October 27, 2013, died of an ailment that stemmed from his liver transplant.

Dr. Charles Miller, who performed the transplant on Reed at the Cleveland Clinic, has revealed that Reed was back in Ohio last week for further treatment. Sadly, it was determined that Reed’s end-stage liver disease could no longer be treated, and he decided to return to the home he shared with his wife, fellow musician Laurie Anderson. “We all agreed that we did everything we could,” Dr. Miller said.
