R.I.P Leonard Cohen

R.I.P Leonard Cohen, who has died aged 82.   I was introduced to his music when I was a teenager by the wonderful ‘Songs of Leonard Cohen’ album and to his writing by his novel ‘Beautiful Losers’.

I was lucky enough to be able to see him live on his famous 1979 tour, backed by the excellent Texas band ‘Passenger’, and immortalized on the ‘Field Commander Cohen’ album. He was a wonderful songwriter and poet.
