    The Timeless Music of 'Leonard Cohen' ...

     


          Who is Leonard Cohen?



        From Wikipedia


     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Cohen" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Cohen


     
      Birth Name
    Leonard Norman Cohen
    Born
    (1934-09-21) 21 September 1934 (age 79)
    Westmount, Quebec, Canada
    Genres
    Folk, folk rock, rock, pop rock, soft rock, spoken word
    Occupations:
    Musician, singer-songwriter, poet, novelist
    Instruments
    Vocals, guitar, keyboards
    Years active

    Associated Acts:

    Leonard Norman Cohen, CCGOQ (born 21 September 1934) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist.


    His work has explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships.


    Cohen has been inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and both the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.


    He is also a Companion of the Order of Canada, the nation's highest civilian honour.In 2011, Cohen received a Prince of Asturias Award for literature.


    The critic Bruce Eder assessed Cohen's overall career in popular music by asserting that "he is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic … singer/songwriters of the late '60s … and has retained an audience across four decades of music-making … Second only to Bob Dylan (and perhaps Paul Simon) [in terms of influence], he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the 1960s who is still working at the outset of the 21st century."


    The Academy of American Poets has commented more broadly on Cohen's overall career in the arts, including his work as a poet, novelist, and songwriter, stating that "Cohen's successful blending of poetry, fiction, and music is made most clear in Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs, published in 1993, which gathered more than 200 of Cohen's poems … several novel excerpts, and almost 60 song lyrics … While it may seem to some that Leonard Cohen departed from the literary in pursuit of the musical, his fans continue to embrace him as a Renaissance Man who straddles the elusive artistic borderlines.

    Thanks for starting the Leonard Cohen thread.  I saw your note in the video thread.  


    Frankly, your persistence is to your credit.  I've almost given up on posting b/c of the difficulties I've had, let alone my inability to feel I am even seeing updated posts.   Every view looks different, and every forum seems to be either experiencing varying degrees of success, or it's all a matter of what browser (and what version of the browser) a person is using.   Not user-friendly.  :(


    In the meantime, I'll listen to some of the videos you've posted; I'll get a bit more of an overview that way for starters.   I agree, Leonard Cohen's music is "timeless" and crosses generations, but for some reason, his music was never on my radar, other than on a very limited basis.
