Leonard Cohen - do you think he is a god?

I do, but I know a lot of people who either don't know him at all or their response is "meh".

Your thoughts?

Sorry but I'm in the 'what's all the fuss about?' camp.

(I'll get my coat....🙂 )

If you don't groove on the Cohen, that is cool.

Me, I love him as a writer and artist.

But you sure as shit will not get the party started with Leonard Cohen, that I know.

@Palindromeman That depends on the kind of party you want to start. Put on "A Thousand Kisses Deep" in the right situation...

No Doubt! Right next to Jerry Garcia and Greg Brown.

Cohen didn't give many interviews during his life but he did one right near the end and it's amazing. I can't remember who the interviewer was but it's worth looking for.

Leonard is one of my absolute favorites.

God status pending. 😉

Do I think he is a God? no. I don't even think God is a God, which is why I am on this page. I do feel he is one of the finest songwriters of the 20th century.

Then we are well met.

No, no, no. Great music but a God, no.

I ain't making him celestial, don't get me wrong. But Cohen is and remains influential.

As I understand it, he wrote "Hallelujah" deliberately so it would be covered by other people.

He IS a god, for sure.

Copy that.
