Leonard Cohen With Son & Grandson In Adam Cohen’s “Like A Man” Video

Adam Cohen has released a video promoting his new album, “Like A Man.” In it, he talks about finding his place as part of his father’s heritage rather than rebelling against that notion. Consequently, Leonard Cohen appears often in this brief video. These photos are all screen captures from “Adam Cohen – Like A Man”

The first shot is Leonard Cohen with his grandson (Adam’s son). The second image shows Leonard and Adam Cohen embracing. The third is composed of two screenshots, one showing Adam Cohen walking past a mirror and one showing a young Leonard Cohen also walking past a mirror (a scene originally from “Ladies and Gentlemen – Mr. Leonard Cohen”). Fourth is Leonard Cohen in the audience watching his son perform. Fifth is Leonard Cohen talking about about his son’s performance; the full caption (including the previous frames) follows:

He’s the real thing. Even if he weren’t my son, I’d be deeply moved. The fact that he is my son makes me so very happy.

There are many more allusions to Leonard Cohen, including scenes from Hydra. Rufus Wainwright also makes a couple of appearances.

Recommended Reading: This Story About Leonard Cohen Has Sex In It By Mike Jahn

“So Leonard Cohen of the enormous talent and even bigger dick was really ticked off about how few if any others could match him, at least in the first.”

From This Story About Leonard Cohen Has Sex In It by Mike Jahn (Mike Jahn: Sept 9, 2009).

After serving as the first rock music reviewer for The New York Times, Mike Jahn switched to fiction and has since published 50 books. He is also an old friend of Erin Dickins, who has appeared on this site because she was a backup singer for Leonard Cohen in the early 1970s. Erin alerted me to Mike Jahn’s provocatively titled (and, for that matter, provocatively written) article and, like Mr Cohen, I am “not the kind of chap to keep something that like to myself.” The complete article qualifies as a worthwhile read and can be assessed at the link.
