Column: Leonard Cohen: Mt. Baldy monk, Claremont consumer

lcohen1

Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen’s death reminds me that some 20 years ago he was apparently a familiar sight in the Claremont Village. (He left about the time I moved there, alas.) Sunday’s column pays tribute through color gleaned from talking to a bunch of people who saw him or waited on him. Above and below are views of the window display in his honor at the Folk Music Center.

    I was evidently not aware of him and his music at the time he was in the area. I love his music–I have his album and can listen to “I’m Your Man” over and over. Was sad to learn of his passing–always hoped I would see him live in concert some day.
