GQ Article, Cooler With Age, Oct. 2009

Postby LisaLCFan » Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:43 am

I just came across this rather fun article about Leonard, and I couldn't find it anywhere on the forum, so I thought I'd post it. If it has been posted and you know where, please feel free to deal with this appropriately!

Hi Lisa
Hard to imagine that one of the regulars in here didn't find that article, but I at least had never seen it. Thanks for sharing--what a fun and lightly sexy article. ;-)

Thanks Lisa!

I haven't seen this anywhere else either. Great article with a bit of a twist. Never goes into the lost all his money, blah, blah, blah....... Love the line,"Cohen's bass no doubt produces a rumbling in the ovaries....".

Warmest regards,
Mary

Hi,

That is a fun article, there is hope for us aging blokes yet! Perhaps I will practice a work on a redition of 'Im Your Man'...

Thanks for this article. He's great.
But unfortunately I'm probably stuffed shirt. I do not understand pictures LC and quite naked women. Why? I do not fit this image. Veiled sexuality is always much more beautiful. And more fits LC. :)

thanks Lisa

Excellent article, well written. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I like the rare shot of Leonard in a t-shirt, too.

Anyone interested in the September 1994 MOJO article that goes along with the photo of Leonard and his Romanian girl friend - who is, by the way, not nude but just topless - can find it (and the photo) at http://1heckofaguy.com/2009/06/22/that- ... ing-photo/
mojocoverxxx500.jpg
That entry is a buffed-up version of a two year old Heck Of A Guy post showcasing John Walsh’s excellent article on Leonard Cohen, which includes

* Leonard Cohen’s admission that he played barn dance music
* His denial that he wore gingham skirts
* His recommendation for universal conscription
* The Cohen C.V.: Office Worker, Elevator Operator, Short Story Writer
* Leonard Cohen’s confession that he taunted Phil Spector’s bodyguard: You’re a motherfucking pussycat. You don’t even known how to use that [gun]3
* His report of an encounter with Nico: Nico hauled off and hit me so hard it lifted me clean off the bed

Oh, and there is that photo of Leonard Cohen “celebrat[ing],” according to the legend on the photo, “his 45th birthday with traditional flair ["traditional flair" apparently not pictured] and his Romanian girlfriend Michelle at his house on the Greek island of Hydra September 22, 1979: ‘I don’t like the kiss-and-tell as a form.’”

A couple of things I must disagree with - I don't think Leonard would have to talk any woman into a "mercy-fuck"! I'm quite sure that any woman, of any age, fortunate enough to find herself in the sublime presence of The Man, would be more than happy to hit the floor (or the bed, or the table, or whatever) with him, in less than a second; and if anything, Leonard would be the one doling out the "mercy"!

And, what does he mean that Leonard made Dylan's voice sound operatic?!! IMHO, Dylan never had even a fraction of the vocal or instrumental musicality that Leonard had from day one (that Leonard was clearly "born with")!

But I do appreciate the generally positive tone, & the acknowledgement of Leonard's genius, coolness, sensuality, & of course that deep, resonant voice "rumbling ovaries everywhere". . .

Thank you, Lisa, for sharing.
