The Canadian songwriter/author/poet left us Monday, it was announced Thursday.

Can we keep a constant watch on Bob Dylan and Keith Richards? What a year for losses in the musical world and now Leonard Cohen has left us, just a few weeks after his 82nd birthday. David Remnick wrote a lengthy piece on Leonard last month in the New Yorker, he seemed ready to move on, not unlike Bowie’s Blackstar signaling his death. He leaves a massive legacy, with countless interpretations of his work and surely many more to come. Rest, in peace, Leonard.
