    RIP Leonard Cohen

    Just few weeks ago he said that he was ready to die, then not long after he retracted that to say that he wasn't just yet.

    Cohen has been one of my favorite poets since the mid 70s from his his first 1967 album; Songs of Leonard Cohen...with the songs 'Suzanne', 'Sisters of Mercy', 'So Long, Marianne'; he had a tremendous imprint on my psyche. He'll be remembered for eternity on the eve of Remembrance Day...

    So very sad to hear - but - what a life he lived! Desert Island music for me.

    Very, very sad News.

    I have gotten Leonard Cohen "Live Songs" as a present 40 years ago.
    At this time I heard Status Quo, Scorpions and Queen.

    This record changed my musical horizon. I adored him and his work since then.

    Today is Remembrance Day:
    In memory of all the fallen angels, and of all the fallen children from a world bleeding inside out.
