    There aren't many things in this world that intimidate me.  Angry women perhaps, maybe parts of law enforcement, but when I received the generous opportunity to cover Leonard Cohen's show tomorrow night, I had no idea how to do the man justice.  What do you say about a legend who ran on the fringe of the Warhol crowd, is a member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as well as the Canadian Music Hall of Fame among others), was mentioned in a Nirvana song, and who's induction speech was given by Lou Reed (If I have to tell you who Lou Reed is…well I'm at a loss)?!  Yes. Those are some of my personal cool reference points, but there are




    Lou Reed stated Cohen belongs in the 'highest and most influential echelon of songwriters'.  Pretty solid summation of a man who's career has spanned over 50 years, produced 12 studio albums, garnered 6 tribute albums, some documentaries, poetry books and numerous awards that create a list far too extensive to give you.  Leonard Cohen does have a bit of a sullen sound, with a deep raspy voice, but creates inspiring songs that are simply beautiful.  On his latest album, 'Old Ideas', Cohen stays true to fashion and is blessing us with his first concert in Louisville, ever.

    Amazingly you can still get tickets at the link below, they’re not cheap but this is truly a once in a lifetime chance.  Come out and have a listen to one of the genuine musical wizards of our lifetime and I hope to see you all there.  It may change your life, just saying.
