A great performer and a great loss.

So long Leonard
I was there. Also saw him at the Albert Hall in 72. The only thing I remember about that was you could hardly hear him. After about 15 minutes of muffled singing people started shouting "we can't hear you". They fiddled with the sound system but it was never very clear.

If anyone ever said that were feeling a bit down the standard response used to be "oh shit he's going to get the Leonard Cohen LPs out".

I think I'll dust off 'Songs from A Room'.

He was one of probably three singers who I would feel this way about, the other two being Lou Reed and Nina Simone. Music to go back to, to wallow in. Cohen's felt the deepest somehow.

How true, whenever feeling down, Cohen would always raise me up again.

Have to dust off his first album "Songs of Leonard Cohen".

Whilst reading "Beautiful Losers".

His music was an acquired taste, but otherwise a clever talented man.

Saw this on Twitter. Leonard Cohen's letter to his love and muse Marianne Ihlen this year, 3 days before she died.

They read this out on five live earlier. Whilst a wonderful piece of prose it doesn't do much to instil that Friday feeling.

This is a big loss but we can see he knew it was coming.
I saw a couple of his recent shows in Toronto and here in Connecticut and they were outstanding. The band and the arrangements suited his material perfectly . The backing singers Sharon Robinson and The Webb Sisters (from Sevenoaks) were superb. Sharon Robinsons album "Everybody Knows " is ace and Adam Cohen is doing good work too so the legacy won't just be retrospective.

Definitely a poet that sang rather than the other way round but these older guys (Dylan,Van Morrison,Cohen, Ian Hunter) still know how to put a band together .

Not sure I agree with that. Hallejulah, i prefer a cover with a female voice, but there are plenty of others that have to be sung by Cohen.

That's a bit odd.
Do we have to submit a list of our favourite artists before we are allowed to comment on their passing now?

And I really do take issue that with the assertions that he wasn't a singer.
Someone who puts a lyric to music is a singer. You can argue, subjectively, about the quality of the voice and performance, but it makes them no less a singer.
