Emily Bindiger’s Leonard Cohen Headstand Story Was Classic – Now It’s Classics Illustrated


In the Emily Bindiger Q&A first posted June 8, 2012, one of the stories about life on tour with Leonard Cohen recounted by Emily Bindiger (Emily is best known to Cohencentric readers as Leonard Cohen’s backup singer, along with Erin Dickins, during the 1974 and 1975 Tours) involved a Cohen acrobatic inversion:

There was a very funny day in England when our bus broke down – of course this was way before cell phones or car phones – and Leonard thought we had to get the attention of motorists who were just driving by. So he stood on his head in the middle of the road. It kinda worked.

Emily subsequently searched her own photo stash and was rewarded with the image atop this post.
