Farewell, Leonard Cohen

We can hardly believe it, too. Leonard Cohen, the legendary Canadian musician, artist, and writer who was a favorite of many on the SF Weekly staff, is dead, his Facebook page announced Thursday evening.

“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the post reads. “We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries.  A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief.”
