Leonard Cohen on his way out


Well-Known Member
In light of a number of threads about celebrities shortly after being deceased. I thought I would start one on Leonard Cohen, because many have worried about his health. See this news article. He gives sign that his life is coming to an end.

Our bodies are falling apart and I'll think I'll follow you very soon.

As I approach the end of my life, I have even less and less interest in examining what have got to be very superficial evaluations or opinions about the significance of one’s life or one’s work. I was never given to it when I was healthy, and I am less given to it now.

So long Leonard Cohen.

However there is room for positivity in this thread because he has a son, Adam, who is also a singer/songwriter.

Many readers here will remember covers of his song Hallelujah. Best known version is that by Jeff Buckley.

A Lenoard Cohen tribute concert is scheduled on the 27th of January next year in Brooklyn, New York.

According to the article linked to in the first post:

Cohen has unpublished poems to arrange, unfinished lyrics to finish and record or publish. He’s considering doing a book in which poems, like pages of the Talmud, are surrounded by passages of interpretation.

He himeself said “I don’t think I’ll be able to finish those songs. Maybe, who knows? And maybe I’ll get a second wind, I don’t know. But I don’t dare attach myself to a spiritual strategy. I don’t dare do that. I’ve got some work to do. Take care of business. I am ready to die. I hope it’s not too uncomfortable. That’s about it for me.”

Might anyone, such as Adam Cohen, be able to finish them in time for the tribute concert?
