"Unmatched in his creativity, insight and crippling candour, Leonard Cohen was a true visionary whose voice will be sorely missed. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will bring insight, inspiration and healing for generations to come."
Leonard Cohen's manager Robert Kory talking to Rolling Stone following the death of the "godfather of gloom" at the age of 82. And so the shitshow that is 2016 continues.
I had the good fortune and pleasure of seeing Cohen at Glastonbury in 2008. Looking like "a dapper Mafiosi pensioner in his Sunday best", he put in a sparkling performance, with 'Dance Me To The End Of Love' one of the weekend's undisputed highlights.
