RIP: Leonard Cohen

It is another sad day in the music industry.  On his official Facebook Page, it was announced that revered folk-poet singer, Leonard Cohen died at the age of 82.  The cause of death has not been disclosed. While there was a plethora of singer songwriters who emerged in the 1960’s, there was none that could batch his haunting and deep voice and the wide scope of topics that his songs broached.  Amazingly, it almost never happened. Cohen, who was born in Quebec, was a published poet but hardly a successful one.  A meeting with Judy Collins led to her using two of his songs on her album, “In My Life”, and he would become one of the more sought after songwriters, and later performers.  Unlike so many, Cohen would have a successful career for decades, enjoying a renaissance of sorts, especially with the constant reworking of what is now his most famous song, “Hallelujah”.  He would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, and would later receive The Order of Canada, considered the highest honor that be given from that nation. We here at Notinhalloffame.com offer our condolences to the friends, family and fans of Leonard Cohen.
