Profil:
Leonard Cohen was born September 21,1934, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and died November 7, 2016 in Los Angeles, California, USA. He was a Canadian poet, singer and songwriter. The father of Adam Cohen and Lorca Cohen.

His first collection of poetry, Let Us Compare Mythologies, was published in 1956, followed by The Spice Box of Earth in 1961. After traveling throughout Europe, he settled on the Greek island of Hydra, where he stayed for seven years. There he wrote another collection of poetry, Flowers for Hitler (1964), and two novels, The Favorite Game (1963) and Beautiful Losers (1966). In 1967, Cohen moved to the United States to pursue a career as a folk musician. In 1994, Cohen retreated to the Mt. Baldy Zen Center near Los Angeles, beginning what became five years of seclusion at the center. In 1996, Cohen was ordained as a Rinzai Zen Buddhist monk and took the Dharma name "Jikan", meaning "silence".

During his lifetime he recorded 14 studio albums. A tribute album with 18 songs was released in 1991, featuring R.E.M., John Cale, Nick Cave, Ian McCulloch, Pixies, The House Of Love and Lloyd Cole among others. John Cale's cover of the song "Hallelujah" on this album served as the basis for the version released by Jeff Buckley in 1994.

He was his truest self. He didn't seem to really give much of a crap about success, or fame or any of the trappings. He just did what he did and if you liked it, great. His volume of output is a little small by comparison to performers with a similar durability and span of years to their career. That said, his volume of really good stuff holds up pretty well. And he was very good at the end of his life. He stuck it out.

Certainly.. I was a late bloomer on Cohen, Heard the song "Waiting For A Miracle" years ago when i saw Natural Born Killers for the first time. That really opened me up to Cohen´s dark world a bit, but it has been a hard trek for me as i take it step by step from time to time. But he was equally as much a poet than a singer in my eyes, and lyrically he has inspired musician everywhere. But ultimately, to me, it´s the lyrics that grabs me when we talk about Cohen, and at the same time, he kinda share the throne of darkness with Johnny Cash.
But he was great. True gentleman, lyricist and a songwriter. Not many of those around anymore is it?
Rest in peace Cohen..

May I be the first to point out there are absolutely no comments about Leonard prior to his death, but now that he is dead here is your chance to say how great he was, probably a bit late but anyway praise away.
