    My local paper is reporting that Canadian singer/song writer Leonard Cohen passed away. A statement posted on his official facebook page stated that a memorial will be held in Los Angeles at a later date.

    R.I.P. to legend of music with a unique sound. Hallelujah sir.

    Check out his last cd called "You want it darker." It's a really sad and beautiful cd... it's like he knew he was going to die,,,reminds me of "Hurt" by Johnny Cash, I have a feeling this cd will be a classic...

    Yeah, its a good thing he got his swan song, just like Bowie.

    The man was a Canadian icon and a beloved part of our musical landscape. His rare talent will be sorely missed.

    Not necessarily one of his most famous, but I think this song is fitting.

    "But you'll be hearing from me baby, long after I'm gone
    I'll be speaking to you sweetly from a window in the Tower of Song"


    May you rest peacefully, Leonard.

    Truth be told, I was never a fan of his singing, but I am a huge fan of his songs... So many wonderful cover versions thanks to his briliance in songwriting.

    Brilliant lyricist that inspired many. :(  Underrated imho, despite his acclaim by fellow artists.



    RIP
