I first saw Leonard Cohen perform in the early ’70s in Montreal. The last time was in Toronto a few years ago.
If you never saw him perform you cannot begin to comprehend the joy he brought to his shows. He cared about the show and his audience. As a true musician he honoured those who performed with him. Every live show was, at least to me, a night to remember. For the span of a few hours he made you feel as if you were taking part in something.
His words and music live on.
RIP Mr. Cohen
