Heavy Cohen

Cliff Jones, Rock CD, December 1992

 

WRINKLED, GREY, HUMOROUS and urbane, wearing a crumpled suit and a huge pair of coke bottle specs that magnify his lacquered brown eyeballs to an impressive size, Leonard Cohen retains a charm all his own. An instantly recognisable deep gruff voice rasps and rattles through the room, bringing a mumbling world weary sense of emptiness with it. Despite rumours to the contrary Leonard Cohen is still the miserable old sod you've come to know.
