    Biography

    Leonard Norman Cohen was a Canadian singer-songwriter, born on September 21, 1934 in Montréal, Quebec, Canada and dead on November 7, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

    His first collection of poetry, Let Us Compare Mythologies, was published in 1956, followed by The Spice Box of Earth in 1961.
    After travelling throughout Europe, he settled on the Greek island of Hydra, where he stayed 7 years. There he wrote another collection of poetry, Flowers for Hitler (1964), and two novels, The Favorite Game (1963) and Beautiful Losers (1966). After returning to America, he began his career as a singer, recording 11 studio albums.

    In 1992, a tribute with 18 songs was released, featuring R.E.M., John Cale, Nick Cave, Ian McCulloch, Pixies, The House Of Love and Lloyd Cole among others.
    After 1993, Leonard Cohen lived several years at the Zen Center on Mount Baldy (a Buddhist monastery) in California.
