Leonard Cohen: Crocodile Tears

Paul Mathur, Melody Maker, 2 January 1988

LET'S TALK misconceptions. Like the one about Cleopatra being Egyptian (she was Greek), Christmas being a time for giving (take take take), Ben Elton and Elton John being different people (you never see them together), and Leonard Cohen being grumpy. I know the latter isn't true because he told me a joke, not a great joke admittedly, but a chuckle butty, a little 'un.
