This weekend, we saw the tragic death of Lou Reed, an event that has left the music industry pouring heartfelt tributes from every angle.

Reed was perhaps one of the most influential musicians of the last century, often cited by many as an inspiration thanks to his uncompromising approach to not only art, but the world around him.

So without further ado, in memory of Velvet Underground icon - these are the musicians that without Lou Reed we may have been without altogether. From Arctic Monkeys and Carl Barat to David Bowie and The Sex Pistols, Reed's influence is infinite in its reach.
