“The last time I was in London was about 14-15 years ago.  I was about 60 years old – just a kid with a crazy dream….

“Since then I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and  religions.

“But cheerfulness kept breaking through.”

Leonard Cohen

Live in London Concert 2008

 Leonard Cohen, a Canadian born in 1934,  is a singer-songwriter, musician, poet and novelist.   After a successful career, he spent five years in a Zen Buddhist monastery in the 1990’s.  When he left, he discovered that his accountant had lost all his money and Cohen returned to public performing.  Since then, his song Hallelujah has become massively popular.
