Lou Reed Feeling 'Up And Strong' Following Liver Transplant

Lou Reed says he is feeling "up and strong" following a liver transplant surgery last month. In a statement on his official website Reed revealed that the procedure took place at Ohio's Cleveland Clinic:

"I would like to thank the Cleveland Clinic and all of you around the world who have lifted me with prayer and wishes of love. Your support has buoyed me forever and I am deeply grateful. I am also really up and strong. Thanks to your spirit."

Reed's wife Laurie Anderson also spoke with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, singing the clinic's praises:

"They have the best results for heart, liver and kidney transplants. Whenever I get discouraged about how stupid technology is and how greedy and stupid Americans are, I go to the Cleveland Clinic because the people there are genuinely very kind and very smart."
