    The other night I went to a Leonard Cohen concert. I have never seen a huge audience over a very broad age spectrum so completely enraptured, impassioned and wild over an entertainer, especially one that has never in a very long career been embraced by the mainstream music industry. At age 75 Cohen is absolutely remarkable in his stubborn individualism, his refusal to do anything but his own poetry and visions about love, hate, humankind and society. He still has unbounded charisma and sings with total commitment to his music and lyrics.

    Oh I LOVE Leonard Cohen. I was turned on to him by a friend in 1997. We stayed up late one night drinking and talking, and listen to Google Music: Leonard Cohen all night long.


    I went out the next day and bought it, I recommend it to anyone who loves good music.


    I am jealous, I would love to see him live!
