Oh my goodness, on top of everything else awful that's happening, Leonard Cohen has died.

It was a magical evening. 1500 singers came to Luminato Festival at the Hearn Generating Station in Toronto. Daveed + Nobu (AKA DaBu) taught them back up parts to Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, then Rufus Wainwright joined them on stage to sing lead. It was an EPIC NIGHT! to remember.

Amazing and gifted songwriter who really felt the songs he sang. Yet another musical genius lost. :cry:

Can we press CTRL + ALT + DEL on 2016?

No, I'd prefer not. My son is in remission! :)

As to the subject, it is a sad day when we lose a major talent. Especially when it comes to music.

herring - thanks for the video.

Not as familiar with the music from Leonard Cohan. I like his song, "Hallelujah". Seems like a number of good people have passed away this year.

I wouldn't want to roll back this year because Steph's son is in remission. (This is good news, Steph! :) )

Thanks - I watched that video 3 times (volume loud) and it brought tears to my eyes. Now I'm listening to other songs of Mr. Cohen and reading about his life. Rolling Stone has a good piece.

Did you see Stephen Colbert's "Eff you 2016"?
