Good biography of Cohen's career, but not much from the great Man Himself
on 30 December 2009
Purchased as a Christmas gift for Cohen-fanatic Wife.
This is a nice biography of Cohen's life, full of fellow performers lining up to pay homage to Cohen before performing one of His songs. The usual suspects are there (Rufus Wainwright, Nick Cave, etc). By the end, poor Bono is running out of nice things to say as most has already been said.
The only thing lacking is Cohen Himself, who is relegated to the odd word here and there and a duet with U2 right at the end.
Would of benefited from more of the "Golden Voice", as most Cohen fans want to hear those distinctive tones..
