V 82. letu starosti je danes ponoči umrl Leonard Cohen. Leonard je bil eden izmed glasbenikov, ki je pustil velik pečat na glasbi, ki mi bo vedno blizu in je bil tisti, ob katerem sem preživel veliko prečudovitih romantičnih večerov. Njegov glas, predvsem pa njegova besedila so tisto, kar bo ostalo za vedno.

Smrt je smrt. In leto 2016 ni bilo prijazno leto. Preveč dobrih ljudi je odšlo v tem letu… David Bowie, Prince, Dave Mirra, Gene Wilder, Muhammad Ali,

Novico o smrti Leonarda Cohena so objavili na njegovi Facebook strani (vir):

It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away.
We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief.

Par misli Leonarda C0hena:

  • I think the term poet is a very exalted term and should be applied to a man at the end of his work. When he looks back over the body of his work and he’s written poetry then let the verdict be that he’s a poet.
  • I don’t really understand that process called reincarnation but if there is such a thing I’d like to come back as my daughter’s dog.
  • My two great heroes are W. B. Yeats and Federico García Lorca.
  • I didn’t want to write for pay. I wanted to be paid for what I write.
  • We’re always experiencing joy or sadness. But there are lots of people who’ve closed down. And there are times in one’s life when one has to close down just to regroup.

Namesto odvečnih besede, ker je že Leonard Cohen povedal vse, naj govori njegova glasba:
