I was fortunate to see him perform live twice.

He told the New Yorker last month he was ready to die.

Last time I saw him in London he said he wanted to live forever. Well, I guess he will.
Thanks from Tony

I believe he was aware that he was dying, or at least going to pass soon. Much like Bowie's Blackstar.

Regardless, this is a tragedy. Leonard Cohen was a gifted songwriter and musician. The world is a slightly less colorful place without him.

Rest in peace, maestro.
Thanks from Hollywood

I was so saddened to hear this last night. I only saw him once in concert live - but I wore out my recordings, especially "Suzanne" and "The Stranger Song," in high school!

R.I.P.
