Gloomy Canadian singer Leonard Cohen has become a fan of the late comedian Tony Hancock, after discovering the man from East Cheam via a British member of his tour crew.
So enamored is he by the Sixties’ sitcom that Cohen, 76, recently sent Hancock’s scriptwriter, Ray Galton, a bottle of whiskey signed ‘Thanks for the laughs’, as a mark of his appreciation.
