We have all probably heard Lou Reed's "Walk on the wild side" at some time.The inspiration for the song,Holly Woodlawn (Born Harold Danhakl) has died aged 69.
The first verse starts.................

"Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.

Hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A.

Plucked her eyebrows on the way.

Shaved her legs and then he was a she.

She says, 'Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side'."

I know my Summer'll never come
I know I'll cry until my dying day has come
Let the Winter roll along
I've got nothing left but song

Know all the words to that, great song, didn't know who inspired it.
Blow away the dreams that tear you apart
Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted
