Leonard Cohen dead at 82


http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-37946654

for my time Cohen was a more compelling poet (actual poet) than Bob Dylan (even though I enjoyed Bob's songs more, more often than not).

Please, nobody cover that one song.  You know the one not to cover.  Sing "Famous Blue Rain Coat" or sing "Suzanne" ... but not that one that's been done too many times as it is by people who weren't Cohen himself.
