The Leonard Cohen Version
I visited Iggy in the studio. Somebody showed us a clipping with a personal ad, a young woman looking for ‘a man with the mind of Leonard Cohen and the body of Iggy Pop.’ We wrote a polite letter suggesting we meet sometime, both signed it and placed my telephone number under it. The girl answered. Unfortunately, her only interest was in leading profound conversations.1
The Iggy Pop Version
Years ago, some girl wrote in the classifieds saying she was looking for a man ‘with the poetic sensitivity of Leonard Cohen and the raw power of Iggy Pop,’ so Leonard tried to get me to set up a three-way with her [laughs]. He said, ‘Dude, we can give her both!’2
DrHGuy Note: Hmmm. Leonard Cohen & Iggy Pop as 2/3 of a three-way …. Dude, the mind boggles.
