Happy 80th Birthday Leonard Cohen!
Rolling Stone: After you’re gone, what would you want people to remember about you?
LC: I never give that much thought. Some people care about their work lasting forever – I have little interest in it. You probably know that great story about Bob Hope. His wife came to him and said, “There’s two plots available at Forest Lawn. One looks at some beautiful cypress trees, one looks over the valley. Which do you think you’d prefer?” He said, “Surprise me.” That’s the way I feel about posterity and how I’m remembered. Surprise me.
Giving credit where it’s due. The entire 46:53 of this is quite lovely
It is just a brilliant record. “Sex Beat” by The Gun Club
Nashville, are you ready?!?!?
One of those songs that will live forever. It won’t date.
In the summer of 1970, the Velvet Underground were busy being reborn.
When I heard this song as a demo last year it brought me to tears. No joke. Forget their ages, “A Little Late” is an honest, sophisticated pop song with a powerful message. The song is very cinematic and I knew it was going to be a challenge to capture that on film. When I saw the video for the first time I was BLOWN away. It’s a compelling clip that is chock full of memorable moments. With all the heaviness in the world I hope you can take 5 minutes and watch this wonderful song and be inspired. When you’ve been in the music industry for as long as I have it’s easy to become bitter and jaded, yet Skating Polly reminds me that growing older is not a license to resist change.
