“Mon, that Leonard Cohen – he be cool mon. He be the Bob Marley of Canada”

The Back Story: Michael Bromfield writes that he was a guest in the studio for two hours of “Roots Reggae” with two Jamaican DJs on the Vancouver Community Radio Station, talking not only about reggae but about subjects as diverse as Vladimir Putin and Leonard Cohen. In the midst of the broadcast, one respected Elder of the Jamaican Community in Vancouver rang up to say “Mon, that Leonard Cohen, he be cool mon. he be the Bob Marley of Canada.”

I am in accord with Michael, who concludes “I have never heard Leonard described so brilliantly.”
