Heavy D tributes roll in; Keith Richards win Mailer Prize; Watch Lou Reed and Metallica play live

- Rapper Heavy D is being mourned after passing away at the age of 44 on Tuesday. The New York Times called him “a girthy slickster who was an eager seducer and was unafraid of the dance floor.” The L.A. Times obituary has a quote from the paper’s 1991 profile in which he said, “I'm not one of those pop guys. That's for wimps like Vanilla Ice." Billboard compiled his top 10 hits. MTV offers its own essential playlist.

- Keith Richards was awarded the Mailer Prize for Distinguished Biography for his recent autobiography, “Life.” The Rolling Stones guitarist was introduced at the event by Bill Clinton.

- Oh no they didn’t. Lou Reed and Metallica visited “Later ... With Jools Holland” to perform “Iced Honey” from their universally-loathed album “Lulu.” Fine. But did they really have to give the “Lulu” treatment to Velvet Underground classic “White Light/White Heat”?
