American composer Philip Glass has revealed details about the last time he spoke to Leonard Cohen just before the singing legend died.

Interviewed by The Big Issue magazine, he said: “The last time I spoke to him I asked him when he was next coming to New York. I hadn’t seen him in a while.

“He said, ‘This old car isn’t leaving the garage again’. At the time I didn’t really understand him. I think he was really saying goodbye. I never saw him again. He died about a week later.”
