Leonard Cohen Interview

Check out Cohen's 2001 interview with Nick Paton Walsh of the Observer. The conversation provides an amusing overview of Cohen's career with particular focus on his struggles with depression. There's also an entertaining bit on how Cohen views his own reputation as a ladies' man. We particularly enjoy his quote, "I never discuss my mistresses or my tailors."
