Sad News

 

 

"It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away," the statement read. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief." A cause of death and exact date of death was not given.

First thing I saw this morning...just now waking up on the Eastern Seaboard here in the States.   :(

 

I'll be playing a lot of Cohen today at work and throughout the weekend.

 

I feel old and sad.

A great singer and an even greater songwriter. I am glad to know his music.

Recognized the name from somewhere, so off-chance I checked my music collection, and what do you know....I have his Best Of album in there.

Good time to revisit and enjoy.

 

I know his voice can be a challenge (for some, not me, but I'm also a Tom Waits fan) but his lyrics...so beautiful.
