How long before someone post "Hallelujah"...

Didn't realize he was that old, I saw him on TV a little while back and he looked pretty good.

Sad.

A remarkable performer, he had to come out of retirement a few years ago after living as a Buddhist monk because he found out that his accountant had made of with all his money. I saw him on a few of these pension raising shows and he was playing two and a half hour long sets, some of them in venues that held over 10 thousand people while putting on a great show and he was doing this in his late seventies. Despite the size of some of these venues he somehow managed to turn on a show that felt intimate and personal. The las time I saw him was in the relatively small Olympia Theatre in Paris which holds about two thousand people.

That's ruined my day

Saw him at Isle of Wight 1970

A great performer and a great loss.

So long Leonard

On another occasion we saw him play a concert in Stockholm. The following morning we were in the hotel breakfast room and in walked Leonard Cohen, he was wearing the same dapper charcoal grey flannel suit and fedora that he had worn on stage the previous night. It was if after finishing the gig he had been out all night, popping back to the hotel for a quick breakfast before going to bed. He would have been about 76 years old at the time.

He sat down at the next table to us and we chatted for about half an hour. He told us a story about a painter friend of his from Canada who had a lucrative sideline as an art forger. Apparently he would cause havoc years later by going into museums and galleries around the world proving that some of their valuable "works of art" were actually painted by him.

A warm, amusing and humble man. R.I.P Leonard, he's my man.

RIP. What a lyricist, effortlessly expressing the dark and the light of the human condition.

My wife is in absolute pieces, she's seen him over 20 times in the last 8 years.

This year just gets shitter and shitter.

Just added his latest CD to many if his other work. '' You Want It Darker'' is certainly dark even for him. Did he know something?

I found myself listening to his first album a couple of evenings ago for the first time in ages after feeling an oddly pressing need to do so all day. RIP
