Leonard Cohen – In Person and In Spirit
Introduction: Searching through the archives, I found this followup to Leonard Cohen With Son & Grandson In Adam Cohen’s “Like A Man” Video.
In Adam Cohen’s video promoting his new album, “Like A Man” he talks about finding his place as part of his father’s heritage rather than rebelling against that notion. Leonard Cohen appears often in this brief video. (Adam’s son, Cassius, and Rufus Wainwright, father of Leonard Cohen’s granddaughter, also make appearances.) A collection of these scenes can be found at Leonard Cohen With Son & Grandson In Adam Cohen’s “Like A Man” Video.
The video also, however, invokes Leonard Cohen even when he is not on the screen. Three examples follow:
Leonard and Adam Cohen Play Guitar On Hydra Home Terrace
The image atop this post is a screen capture of the end credits of the “Like A Man” video showing Adam Cohen playing the guitar on the terrace of the family home on Hydra. The well known photo below, taken by Dominique Issermann, depicts Leonard Cohen playing guitar on that same terrace.
Leonard and Adam Cohen Are Interviewed At Leonard Cohen’s Montreal Home
The image below is a screen capture from the “Like A Man” video showing Adam Cohen pondering the dialog he is delivering.
The image below is from a 2006 Norwegian TV interview of Leonard Cohen. Both screen captures show the interviewees seated at the same table in Leonard Cohen’s Montreal home.
The Bird On A Wire Allusion
The image below is a screen capture from the “Like A Man” video showing birds wheeling across the sky over Hydra.
The image below is a screen capture of the scene in the “Like A Man” video that directly follows the shot of the birds in the sky and shows Adam Cohen walking in front of the same kind of telephone/power lines that, when first installed on Hydra, inspired Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On The Wire.”
