Sometimes I click on a link and it fails to load and I think "Thank God."
It's been a terrible week, over here finishing a European tour watching my country slide towards doom. The news of Leonard Cohen's death had nothing to do with everything else in the news but, in my agitated state, seemed somehow like it did. Cohen was a songwriting hero to me. I opened our Bristol show, the morning after the announcement of his death, with this solo cover of "Anthem," which sounds distressingly appropriate to the current moment. We did a full band version of "So Long, Marianne" later in the set. This picture was taken on the ferry from Denmark to Germany. Grey afternoon. https://youtu.be/e20vTWxBtWg
Consider this: There will one day be a whole generation of senior citizens who call each other "dude."
