The Q magazine (UK) has a 23 page tribute in its new issue (#368).
This cover does not qualify to our Gallery of Magazines (http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/maggallery4.html)
because only a corner of the cover is used to this topic.

Thanks to Antti Huttunen for the hint.

I was surprised to find this magazine in my local grocery store. Bounder is a free Ottawa publication that describes itself as "a magazine by, for and about men". I don't know if the article by John Rowlands was written for the magazine as I have read elsewhere about his photo session with Leonard in 1974. The article is on pages 46 and 47.

Fantastic... I have been waiting for the Uncut treatment for a while, and had often wondered why it took them so long to get to it. I have thier issues on Lou Reed and David Bowie, and both are beauties, as I am sure this one also will be.

Leonard Cohen album guide from Uncut Magazine, finally arrives.

Uncut always does a good job on these special issues, "Ultimate Album Guide". I have the ones on Lou Reed and David Bowie, and have seen many more I wouldn't mind having. At $17 bucks a pop in the US, I don't tend o buy them all like I might have 40 years ago before the price of magazines and books went insane. A bonus is that these issues generally contain writings from the past that most or many Americans such as I haven't seen, reprinting articles and interviews from 1960s-2000s issues of the British magazine New Musical Express while we over here would be reading things like Creem, Circus or Rolling Stone. So the writings, while vintage, are fresh. And the main focus of the issue is a complete look of everything released bu L.C. from 1967 to present (and earlier, as it will surely look at his books of poems and two novels as well, which he put out before becoming a singer-songwriter). Bound to be quite a few unseen (to me and most of us) photos from those decades Cohen was a "rock star".

Pretty much an essential and quite long-awaited (after years of doing these, Uncut seems to be just now getting to Leonard Cohen, I have looked a few times) addition to the personal archives, and bound to be an absorbing read and just to gawk at.

Introducing… Leonard Cohen: The Ultimate Music Guide
John Mulvey January 10, 2017

“You'll be hearing from me baby, long after I'm gone…”

When the news broke of his death, on November 10 last year, we had just begun working on an Ultimate Music Guide to Leonard Cohen (on sale this Thursday, but available now from our online shop), emboldened by the brilliance of “You Want It Darker”.
Cohen’s passing should not have been a surprise, in the great scheme of things. Here, after all, was a man of 82 who had recently suggested to the New Yorker’s editor that he was operating in the proximity of death. There was work to complete, Cohen told David Remnick, but, he said, “I don’t think I’ll be able to finish those songs… Maybe I’ll get a second wind, I don’t know. But I don’t dare attach myself to a spiritual strategy. I’ve got some work to do. Take care of business. I am ready to die. I hope it’s not too uncomfortable. That’s about it for me.”
Cohen’s epical endurance, his talent for standing at a remove from the march of time, nevertheless meant that the announcement of his actual death still came as a kind of shock. For nearly 50 years, this uncommonly gracious man had confounded expectations of what a singer-songwriter might look and sound like, of what he might sing about. There is a clichéd expectation that certain feted musicians will choose a path of self-destruction, and Cohen undoubtedly had moments when he found himself on that trajectory. Writing about Songs Of Love And Hate in a new piece for this Ultimate Music Guide, David Cavanagh portrays, “A brilliant madman on the precipice of disaster… Maybe, if you told him he had 45 more years of life and work ahead of him, it would be no surprise if he buckled and shook until his laughter turned into a scream.”

There would be further traumatic episodes, among them a legendary – if not notably successful – spell in the company of Phil Spector. Mostly, though, the story of Leonard Cohen is one of a great artist ruefully trying to make some sense of the mysteries of life and love; trying to persevere on a quest towards transcendence, with caveats.
