The Velvet Underground singer and guitarist was rushed to a Long Island hospital following an emergency call for an adult male suffering from dehydration.
The avant-rocker was taken ill 10 days after making his first public appearance since the transplant at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, where he dissed Obama and told an audience that masturbating is the key to creativity.
A few days after the transplant Reed had also posted a statement on Facebook calling himself “a triumph of modern medicine, physics and chemistry.”
