All depends on when he finally makes the ballot.....of course, we'll hear endless complaints from newspaper writers asking "why aren't Genesis or Kiss in yet?"

if Patti Smith can get in Leonard Cohen sure as hell can get in

I'm pumped that Cohen has been nominated this year, and I'll be elated if he gets elected. I see him as the best candidate after the Beasties and Madonna. I mean, I like him better but I understand why they would get in first. I've got beef with the "Essential Album" pick on this page though, "The Songs of Leonard Cohen" is not only his TRUE essential album but an essential album of the 1960's. It revolutionized songwriting of all genres, ESPECIALLY rock.

Posted by Chalkie on Friday, 09.28.07 @ 12:22pm


I am trying to be fair and listening to all the great artists of 60's and 70's and 80's so I can not just romanticise here , but Leonard Cohen not in Hall of Fame is just not for real. He has influenced as many song writers and singers as Lenny Bruce influenced comedians, and actually much more. His music can take more than one listen so I will give his critics that, but let him grow on you and you are hooked and loyal beyond hope. World wide he is already so acclaimed so how about we unite with our Brothers and Sisters around the world and show them we know they were right, and we are not too big to admit it.
Thank you Leonard for continuing to be so humble and unassuming, I only hope i can be the same and your listeners also.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2008 !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cohen Rocks, "Everybody Knows" he should be in.

Posted by Jim on Thursday, 10.11.07 @ 14:00pm


I was shocked when I saw this, for I would have just assumed he was already in!. I also agree with previous posters that _Songs of Love and Hate_ is not the essential album. The most important Cohen album is _The Songs of Leonard Cohen_

TRUST ME, If U2 has anything to do with, Leonard Cohen will get inducted just so BONO can give another one of his eloquent induction speeches for his idols!

THE BIG NAMES ON THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE:

Ahmet Ertegun - Atlantic Records Founder and Chairman; Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Founder (Now deceased)
Suzan Evans - Lawyer and Executive Director of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
Jann Wenner - Rolling Stone Magazine Founder, Editor and Publisher
Jon Landau - Music Critic, Manager, Record Producer, Chairman of the Nominating Committee
Joel Peresman - President and Cheif Executive Officer of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
Terry Stewart - President and Cheif Executive Officer of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum
Seymour Stein - Cofounder and Chairman of Sire Records
Frank Barsalona - Concert Promoter; Founder of Premier Talent
Anthony DeCurtis - Music Critic and Writer for Rolling Stone Magazine; Phd. English Literature
John Sykes - President of MTV and VH1 Networks
Joe Levy - Rolling Stone Magazine Executive Editor
Lenny Kaye - Patti Smith Guitarist
Robbie Robertson - The Band
Paul Shaffer - Late Show with David Letterman, Bandleader

Robbie Robertson and Paul Shaffer are Canadians. They will definitely vote for Leonard Cohen!

Anthony DeCurtis wrote the notes in the booklets for the new remastered editions of Leonard Cohen's albums.

There is absolutely no way that the elder members on the Rock Hall voting committee are going to induct Chic, Beastie Boys and Afrika Bambaataa before Leonard Cohen. Which leaves us with:

01. The Ventures
02. The Dave Clark Five
03. Leonard Cohen
04. John Mellencamp
05. Donna Summer
06. Madonna

NOW PICK 5!!

Leonard Cohen was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1991.

Recently there has been a sudden reinterest in everything Leonard Cohen!! Leonard Cohen was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006. He was nominated for the 2007 U.S. Songwriters Hall of Fame, but lost! All of his albums are being remastered. Rollingstone has always loved Leonard Cohen. His new book of poetry, "Book of Longing" was a number 1 seller. To top it all off, there was a film produced in 2006 that played at the Sundance Theatres, celebrating Leonard Cohen and his music, Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man.

I really hope 2008 is the year for him! I can't wait any longer!

Congrats to Leonard Cohen, a well deserved honor .

Posted by danny on Thursday, 12.13.07 @ 14:33pm


congrats to the inductees, however i am extremely upset that Donna Summer was not inducted. She truly paved the way for Madonna and all those new artists pop/dance genre. Not happy about this!!!

Inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1991
Inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008

AND ONE TO GO:

Inducted into the U.S. Songwriters Hall of Fame in 20??

Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 01.8.08 @ 10:01am


Well, there's also the UK Music Hall of Fame- but that seems defunct now- tho there's that R&R HOF that may be coming.

ron, I agree that Donna Summer should be in- but, let's not overlook not only Madonna's musical reverence (she's a pretty acclaimed act), but also her historical and cultural importance, thanks to what she did in her music (albums, videos, stage). She really couldn't be denied her first year of eligibility.

Ok...Who the hell is Leonard Cohen. Will someone explain to me what he has done. Everyone talks about his greatness without identifying the songs or style that makes him great. I can't think of a single song he has done, and neither can anybody I ask. Ah...well, I guess he is the perfect male counterpart to the other Canadian no-name, Joni Mitchell. Come on folks, these people are not even close to what and who James Taylor is.

I disagree with him being in. Frank Sinatra is more rock and roll than Leonard Cohen. He's a great lyricist but this isn't the Music Hall of Fame, it's the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Posted by Chalkie on Tuesday, 06.30.09 @ 17:18pm


SSR, Leonard was originally a folk artist, which alone puts him in good standing, given the inductions of Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, not to mention Pete Seeger as an Early Influence. He's one of the best, most poetic, singer/songwriters of that entire scene. As far as songs that actually were bread'n'butter type rock'n'roll, I submit to you: "The Future," "Never Any Good" (which sounds like it could have been a solo Ringo Starr song), "Woke Up This Morning," and "Ain't No Cure For Love," the last of which has a very old school, Drifters-type rock'n'roll feel to it.

It's the ROCK and ROLL HALL OF FAME. Forget Sinatra, you might as well put in Rod McEwen. When this guy is in and Mitch Ryder, Kiss, the Doobies, Rush, and the Guess Who aren't, they need to change the name to Hall of Fame of Who You Know.

Give Me A Leonard Cohen Afterworld So I Can Sigh Eternally

--Kurt Cobain, Pennyroyal Tea

Was Kurt Cobain referring to the fact that Leonard Cohen doesn't really sing, but actually sighs his songs, or was he implying that he loves Leonard Cohen's music so much, it makes him sigh? Or maybe both perhaps?

I think he was refferring to cohen's omnipresent pessimism, which he liked and wanted to have for the eternity after he was dead. Or he was mocking such people in a way. In the retrospect, the latter seems more likely.

Posted by QUW on Sunday, 07.26.09 @ 18:51pm


A very nice man.. I have seen him perform many times and have met with him a few times... We were neighbors in Mt Baldy Cal.. I like Mr Cohen very much ..! He makes the world a better place for all.. A true, one of the few ,real Saints of our Time.

Posted by mrxyz on Sunday, 07.26.09 @ 22:29pm


From Digital Dream Door

Only cult figure Leonard Cohen has questionable achievements to warrant strong consideration.

The most unusual rock "star" of all-time, a published poet and author before beginning his musical career in his mid-30's, his style was widely praised, but not altogether widely popular. Nevertheless he was the bridge between the folk movement of the 60's and the acoustic-based singer-songwriter 70's style. Cohen is a left-field candidate who'll get support from some circles but who's achievements are far too limited to be deserving over so many artists who've yet to get in. The nomination itself should really be the limit of his recognition from the Hall.

Qualifications: 2 - Mostly Insignificant

Hundreds of candidates still waiting for a look from the Hall have legitimate reasons to be angry at the selection of Cohen, who now becomes by far the least qualified Main Performer to be inducted in the Hall's 23 years of existence. It's not that Cohen was a bad artist by any means, he was actually very unique, bringing a poet's background to the music and in the process added greatly to rock 'n' roll's eclecticism, but his tangible achievements, upon which induction for all artists should always be based, are severely lacking. He had no commercial success whatsoever, never scoring a Top 50 album or any Top 100 singles in America, and those are reasonable accomplishments to expect in order to be housed with the immortals. Failing that, a large amount of direct influence would help to offset his lack of popularity, but while Cohen is often referred to as influential in spirit the fact remains that there are no mainstream acts in the four decades since his arrival who have copied his blueprint close enough to warrant Cohen receiving ample credit here either. Being appreciated by a small hardcore group of fans and lauded by predominantly literary minded critics is nice but it does not equate to the type of objective criteria-based achievements that a Hall Of Fame must require of its inductees to be taken seriously. Cohen's election over the four nominated artists this year who failed to get in despite far superior credentials is a sad testimony to the state of affairs with the voting body who apparently ignore tangible accomplishments in favor of personal taste and their own murky perception of what exactly constitutes historical impact. Cohen is certainly worth being remembered in the annals of rock, but not worthy of being inducted as a Hall Of Fame artist based on his rather negligible career achievements.

Leonard Cohen, in particular, has been talked about as an obvious inductee since 1992. His debut album, Songs Of Leonard Cohen, was released in 1967. It's nice to see the Rock Hall catch up on a few overdue artists.

Leonard Cohen is nominated for the 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame. Looking at this year's nominees, there seems to be something fishy going on, and it tells you something about the thought process of the nominating committee members. David Foster, Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp, Lou Reed, Dion DiMucci, Elvis Costello and U2 are all nominated for the 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame. David Foster and Leonard Cohen are both Canadian and they both attended a ceremony in 2008 honoring a Canadian music industry person who had something to do with the early days of the Grammys. I can't remember who it was or what it was all about. It was either in California or British Columbia. Elvis Costello is a Leonard Cohen fan. Leonard Cohen and John Mellencamp were both inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2008 and both attended. Leonard Cohen and Lou Reed were both nominated for the 2007 Songwriters Hall of Fame and now they are both being nominated again for the 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame. Lou Reed gave the induction speech for Leonard Cohen at the 2008 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. Lou Reed also gave the induction speech for Dion DiMucci, who was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1989 as Dion. Dion DiMucci is nominated for the 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame. So four people with connections to the 2008 Rock Hall are being nominated for the 2010 Song Hall: Dion DiMucci, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen and John Mellencamp. U2 is also nominated this year. U2 are fans of Leonard Cohen and they were in the film Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man and they performed Tower of Song with Leonard Cohen. Oh, and U2 was in the video biography for Leonard Cohen at the 2008 Rock Hall induction ceremony. So that makes it 5 connections. It's as if the Song Hall did all of this on purpose!...And if both Leonard Cohen and John Mellencamp get inducted in 2010...Wooooooooow, a repeat of the 2008 Rock Hall. Six degrees of separation.

It's time to reflect on L Cohen's view of the future:

"There'll be the breaking of the ancient western code
Your private life will suddenly explode
There'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road
and the white man dancing

You'll see a woman hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets coming round
tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson"

Posted by Darrin on Tuesday, 06.8.10 @ 10:05am


The only biblical significance regarding the number 27 is that there are 27 books in the New Testament. I've always taken it as a "trinity of trinities" (3 X 3 X 3), with whatever connotations one cares to ascribe. Another loose association are the artists known as the Club of 27 or the 27 Club (those who died at age 27)- namely Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain.


TOWER OF SONG BY LEONARD COHEN, 1988

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song
I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn't answered yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the Tower of Song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the Great Beyond
They tied me to this table right here
In the Tower of Song

So you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I'm very sorry, baby, doesn't look like me at all
I'm standing by the window where the light is strong
Ah they don't let a woman kill you
Not in the Tower of Song

Now you can say that I've grown bitter but of this you may be sure
The rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor
And there's a mighty judgement coming, but I may be wrong
You see, you hear these funny voices
In the Tower of Song

I see you standing on the other side
I don't know how the river got so wide
I loved you baby, way back when
And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
But I feel so close to everything that we lost
We'll never have to lose it again

Now I bid you farewell, I don't know when I'll be back
They're moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But you'll be hearing from me baby, long after I'm gone
I'll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower of Song

Yeah my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

A History of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"
March 06, 2008 07:12 PM Filed in: 2008 Ceremony

The one song that stands the best chance to be played during the final jam at the end of the 2008 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is "Hallelujah," written by inductee Leonard Cohen.

The song has become ingrained in our culture over the past 20+ years thanks to scores of cover versions (even showing up on American Idol this week). Michael Barthel over at clapclap.org broke down the history of the song in a hugely comprehensive fashion. Check out the number of cover versions by year:

Leonard Cohen Announces Tour
January 22, 2008 10:16 PM Filed in: 2008 Ceremony

Leonard Cohen announced today that he will embark on his first tour in 15 years beginning in May. This comes on the heels of his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which will occur on March 10th. Since Cohen is preparing for an extensive tour, it would seem likely that he will perform some songs during the induction ceremony.

"Waiting for the Miracle" needs to be up there under essential songs.

Leonard Cohen's 2014 Ballot - My guesses

01. The Zombies (because they are predecessors of Cohen and he probably listened to their music)
02. The Meters (because of their connections to the Neville Brothers/Aaron Neville, who have covered Leonard Cohen songs numerous times)
03. Peter Gabriel (because he is a singer/songwriter like Cohen and he has also covered Cohen songs)
04. Cat Stevens (another singer/songwriter)
05. Linda Ronstadt or Nirvana (Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld so I can sigh eternally)

Is this a real album, or a fantasy one? Gotta say, borderline appalling. First off, no Leonard Cohen tribute album will be complete without "Hallelujah." Second, if you haven't heard the Neville Brothers' version of "Bird On A Wire" you are seriously missing out. The only thing missing from it is some bass vocals to fill out the vocal harmonies. Also, there needs to be a rendition of "Never Any Good" by Ringo. Leonard's version sounds like he wrote the song with Ringo in mind.

Posted by Philip on Tuesday, 03.29.16 @ 23:26pm


Philip: Pretty sure it's just a custom-made list of potential songs and singers. A cursory search turns up two Cohen tribute albums (I'm Your Fan and Tower of Song) and the album for the movie "I'm Your Man".

Nick Cave appears on the I'm Your Fan album (he sang Tower of Song with the Bad Seeds) and a couple of times on the soundtrack (once for I'm Your Man, and again on Suzanne), but he's the only artist on Roy's list who has ever actually done tribute covers of his music on an album.

Posted by SotN on Wednesday, 03.30.16 @ 01:11am


The Leonard Cohen tribute albums are Famous Blue Raincoat (Jennifer Warnes), I'm Your Fan, Tower of Song, I'm You Man: The Soundtrack, and Cohen Covered (A MOJO Magazine CD).

Yes, mine is imaginary. I would pay the artists to make it happen. Why is it borderline appalling Philip? Yes, I've heard the Neville Brothers version of Bird On A Wire. That's what made me think to have Peter Cetera cover it. Aaron Neville and Peter Cetera both have nasal voices.

Chelsea Hotel #2 by Prince because it's a dirty little song, and Prince has been known for dirty songs like Sugar Walls, Little Red Corvette and Darling Nikki.

Don't Go Home With Your Hard-On is perfect for Alice Cooper's voice and his style. Think about it. I'm Eighteen, School's Out, No More Mr. Nice Guy, Welcome To My Nightmare. Image Alice Cooper singing Don't go home with your hard-on/It will only drive you insane/You can't shake it (or break it) with your Motown/You can't melt it down in the rain

Everybody Knows is perfect for New Order's new wave/synth/electronica style and Bernard Sumner's voice.

First We Take Manhattan is perfect for the Pet Shop Boys. Think of West End Girls and What Have I Done To Deserve This.

Closing Time is a funny song, and a funny man should do a sped-up polka version with an accordion: Weird Al Yankovic.

Democracy can be turned into a rap song because of its lyrics. RUN DMC or any rap act could do it.

The Beastie Boys can perform The Future in the style of Sabotage or even You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party. Scream the lyrics!

Posted by Roy on Wednesday, 03.30.16 @ 07:22am


First off, again, no Hallelujah. Not even close to my favorite Cohen song, but a tribute album without it doesn't even clear the first hurdle.

Peter Cetera should not touch Bird On A Wire. First off, you need to keep in mind that Aaron Neville's solo style is different from the collaborative style of the brothers. Cetera's version would have no vocal harmonies, and would be a watered down white pop version of it, instead of a neo-African vibe that the Nevilles give it.

"Closing Time" is not a comedy song. It's not. It's a bittersweet song with some reflection on life.

"Democracy" should not be performed by any American act. Cohen is Canadian, and because of that there's always a little bit of puzzlement as to whether it's sincere or satire. It's Cohen's koan. An American act covering it would have the same effect that promoting Jay And The Americans' version of "Only In America" instead of the Drifters' had on its potential social bite.

The Beastie Boys could do an interesting version of "The Future", but it would lose its pulsating smoothness. I would, however, agree to the Beasties doing "Woke Up This Morning." Or Moby.

Also, you're missing a couple of my faves: "Ain't No Cure For Love", "Take This Waltz", and "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye" (the Vogues do an AMAZING version of that one), and I feel you should probably also have "The Partisan."

Your picks for Suzanne and Everybody Knows though were pretty solid. Although Newman would be a good call for Closing Time.

It would still be perfect for "Weird Al" Yankovic to cover. It came out the same year as You Don't Love Me Anymore.

The Bad Seeds also covered "Avalanche" on their debut album, From Her to Eternity, and gave it a much darker and rougher feel at that early point where they essentially sounded like a slowed down version of the Birthday Party.

Janet Jackson or someone needs to produce a remake of That's The Way Love Goes, featuring Leonard Cohen. Leonard Cohen and only Leonard Cohen should speak the following lines throughout the whole song:

Like a moth to a flame burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way love goes

And you know that would a terrible thing, right?

Also, "Weird Al" is about making the funny happen. He might do a parody of it, but he's not gonna straight-up cover. He wouldn't touch it, nor should he. Just because it came out at the same time as his "Off The Deep End" album is no reason for him to cover it.

I only got into his music because of his nomination back in 2007 for the Class of 2008, but my love of his music and writing style just shot up with direct correlation to how much more I found of him. Such a singular talent. RIP Leonard Cohen

LEONARD COHEN MAKES IT DARKER

At eighty-two, the troubadour has another album coming. Like him, it is obsessed with mortality, God-infused, and funny.

Marianne (So Long, Marianne) died this past July according to the New Yorker article.

We shall see what happens on the Billboard 200 Albums chart next week. I'm Your Man (1988) and The Future (1992) did not chart in the U.S. when originally released. I think they will finally make it. Currently on iTunes USA, You Want It Darker is # 2, and The Essential Leonard Cohen is # 14. In iTunes Canada they are # 1 and # 2. All of his other albums are in the top 200 as well.

Leonard Cohen buried quietly on Thursday in Montreal

News of Cohen’s death became known to the public Thursday night but he died on Monday.

Leonard Cohen had already been buried at a Montreal cemetery before his death became publicly known.

The legendary singer-songwriter received a graveside memorial service on Thursday, according to a statement released by Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, an Orthodox synagogue in Montreal’s Westmount neighbourhood of which he “was a beloved and revered member.”

Cohen died on Monday in Los Angeles, though his death at age 82 was only made public on Thursday night in a post on Facebook.

The evidence of his burial lies beneath a conspicuous covering of fallen brown leaves in front of an unmarked gravestone, which cover the unsettled earth, wet cement and the tracks of an industrial digger.

Though an official at the cemetery refused to confirm the location of the singer’s gravesite when questioned by the Star on Friday, it appears to sit in a Cohen family plot that sits just through the front gates of the Jewish cemetery near the base of Mount Royal.

“Leonard’s wish was to be laid to rest in a traditional Jewish rite beside his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents,” read the statement released Friday by Rabbi Adam Scheier and Cantor Gideon Zelermyer, who sings background vocals on the title track of Cohen’s recent album, You Want it Darker.

Marie Mazur, a friend of the musician who runs the fan site Speaking Cohen, said the funeral was for family only.

“He was a wonderful guy,” Mazur said. “Basically, what you saw on stage, in interviews, that was who he was and more. He was just a very kind, generous person.”

RIP to the late great Leonard Cohen; he was one of my favorite singer-songwriters and someone whose vision and lyrics impacted the music community in profound ways. We lost a truly poetic musical figure.

LEONARD COHEN’S THEORIES ON LIFE, DEMOCRACY, AND THE FUTURE

A 30-MINUTE UNCUT 1993 INTERVIEW WITH THE SONGWRITER, FROM ‘120 MINUTES’

JESSICA HOPPER
11/18/2016

http://www.mtv.com/news/2956084/leonard-cohen-on-120-minutes/

On November 7, legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen died in his home in Los Angeles. As Molly Lambert wrote earlier this week, “Cohen’s songs preach about the pleasure in sadness and the underlying sadness of all pleasure. He located firmly in the reality of the everlasting present.” His gifts will continue to give long beyond his passing. Here is a 30-minute uncut interview that Cohen did for 120 Minutes in 1993. His wit, wisdom, and incisive sense of humour are all on display, as ever, as he reflects on life, democracy, his influence, and the future.
