In a recent column by Jon Pareles in the New York Times, Final Reckonings, A Tuneful Fedora And Forgiveness, we get this from the great Leonard Cohen:
“And for some financial reasons I was forced to go back on the road to repair the fortunes of my family and myself. And this was a most fortunate happenstance because I was able to connect, for one thing, with living musicians. I was working at home with just keyboards and my own guitar. Suddenly I was dealing with living musicians and then with living audiences and, yes, it did have a great effect. And I think it warmed some part of my heart that had taken on a chill.”
My copy of Old Ideas should arrive any day now.
