Legendary Pink Floyd founder David Gilmour’s wife, poet Polly Samson, recently posted some Leonard Cohen song lyrics to her Twitter account: “It’s four in the morning, the end of December” #ATheatreForDreamers #FindLeonardsRaincoat #LeonardCohen #FamousBlueRaincoat”

David Gilmour’s ‘wet’ accident onstage was just revealed. In response, @tobyhporter tweeted: here is Leonard singing Famous Blue Raincoat that impossibly rainy night in Weybridge in 2009, taken a row or two from where you & your family were watching.

“That was my favourite of all the Leonard Cohen gigs I’ve been lucky enough to attend. By the encore I was right up against the front of the stage, dancing in the rain.” Roger Waters ‘backing out’ of Pink Floyd reunion leaks.

Around the time of Leonard Cohen’s passing, Alternative Nation compared the legendary songwriter’s version of “Hallelujah” to Jeff Buckley’s impeccable cover version:

“Cohen was a master craftsman when it came to song-writing. “Hallelujah” is his magnum opus. But it’s almost as if he wrote it for Jeff Buckley to perform. Buckley was able to take this masterpiece to a whole other level. So much so that in 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Buckley’s version number 259 in their “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Pink Floyd member reveals 2020 tour lineup photo.

In the same way a playwright can write a character with a particular actor in mind to bring his work to life, thus is the relationship of Leonard Cohen to Jeff Buckley. Cohen is the architect of this powerhouse of a song, the genius behind the curtain, but it is Buckley’s powerhouse performance that will help this song to live on for years to come.

The combination of Cohen’s knack for interweaving poetry into his music and Buckley’s ability to completely make the song his own leave you with this timeless, beautiful piece of music. Cohen was preceded in death by Buckley, who died of an accidental drowning in 1997. You would be hard pressed to think of a better song to remember these two great artists by.”
