Leonard Cohen ist gestorben

Leonard Cohen holte die Liebe, ihre Euphorie und ihren Schmerz, immer wieder aus dem Innersten an die Oberfläche. Zum Glück haben wir ihn gehabt

Die Komponistin und Sängerin Suzanne Vega erzählte kürzlich dem Chefredakteur des Magazins The New Yorker, David Remnick, wie sie einmal Leonard Cohen in seinem Hotel besuchte. Sie trafen sich am Pool. Cohen fragte sie, ob sie sich sein neustes Lied anhören wolle. „Als ich ihm zuhörte, bemerkte ich, wie sich eine Frau nach der anderen, alle im Bikini, auf die Stühle um ihn herum setzten. Als er fertig war, fragte ich ihn, ‚Leonard, hast du all die Frauen wahr genommen?‘ Er antwortete ohne mit der Wimper zu zucken, ‚es funktioniert jedes Mal‘.“ Leonard Cohen war ein homme a femme, das ist jedem klar, der einmal ein Konzert von ihm besucht hat und in die Augen der versammelten Damenwelt geschaut hat. Natürlich hatte das mit seinem guten Aussehen, seiner grabestiefen Stimme zu tun. Und damit, wie er über sexuelles Erleben und über Frauenkörper schrieb und sang.

==================
Ende 2004 begann Cohens Tochter seiner Vertrauten und Managerin Kelley Lynch zu misstrauen. Es stellte sich heraus, dass Lynch Cohens Vermögen in Höhe von mehreren Millionen Dollar fast vollständig veruntreut hatte. Cohen verklagte Kelley Lynch und gewann den Prozess, das Geld blieb jedoch verschwunden. [Leonard Cohen, Rückzug und Comeback, Wikipedia, abgerufen am 14.11.2016]

Video of Leonard on Mount Baldy. This was filmed in 1996 and it documents Leonard's experiences and routine while at Mt. Baldy. I believe this "film" was shot by a French artist named Armelle Brusq. Sadly, Leonard's dear friend and teacher Roshi, who we see in this video, passed away in 2014 at the age of 107.

Judy Collins welcomes Leonard Cohen to her PBS TV concert performance in this video clip from January 1976. They perform Cohen's song, "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye," which Judy had recorded for her 1967 landmark album, Wildflowers. This new encoding of the footage has better quality video and includes my new embedded ID tag. I have copied and carried over some of the comments from the previous posting. This footage is taken from a PBS TV program, broadcast over 30 years ago in monaural sound, and captured on a Sony SuperBeta hi-fi deck.

Leonard Cohen's Prince Of Asturias Speech - No Overdubbing [11:48]


Allan Showalter Hochgeladen am 25.10.2011 
How I Got My Song, Leonard Cohen's speech at the Oct 21, 2011 Prince of Asturias Awards is already available on video uploads, all of which suffer from overdubbing in Spanish that sometimes obscures Cohen's words. In this version, however, all but the first 2-3 minutes of the talk are played from an audio tape with no overdubbing. While that portion of the tape contains ambient noise and some volume and pitch fluctuations, it is significantly easier to understand.
