[Taylor Mead in 1975 / Photo: EV Grieve]We are learning the sad news this morning that Warhol star, writer, and poet Taylor Mead died yesterday at the age of 88. His passing comes just a month after accepting a settlement with notorious landlord Ben Shaoul to vacate 163 Ludlow Street, the Lower East Side tenement building he called home for three decades. Mead had then fled to Denver to live with family for a while, but, we were told, wanted to return to the Lower East Side.
UPDATE: we are told that Mead passed away from a purported “full blown stroke” while in Colorado.
A talent that will be missed.
And, in case you were wondering, his Wikipedia page has already been updated.
Feel free to share any stories of Taylor while we mourn…
