Lou Reed: Spider-Man.
A newly-discovered genus of spider has been named after classic rock singer/guitarist Lou Reed.
An international group of biologists recently stumbled across the never-before-seen velvet spiders, which live underground, and decided to name the type of spider after Reed as he was once in Velvet Underground!
Sci-News.com reports that the arachnid, now called Loureedia annulipes, lives in Israel.
