Singer-Songwriter Leonard Cohen Dies at 82
It’s the end of an era. The hugely influential Canadian’s work spanned five decades, after he ditched poor-selling poetry for the 1960s folk-rock scene in New York City, where he turned out artistic gems while mingling with Andy Warhol and Nico. Cohen’s best-known song, 1984’s “Hallelujah,” didn’t achieve its full due until covered by Jeff Buckley a decade later. His final album, You Want It Darker, earned critical acclaim earlier this year, and Cohen will be remembered as one of the most original voices of his time.
