Leonard Cohen Bergen Ice Cream Photo Gallery (2012)

BergensavisenPrior to the 2012 Bergen concert, the press discovered Leonard Cohen chowing down on an ice cream cone in the company of Sharon Robinson & Roscoe Beck and captured the scene in these photos that are now archived in Cohencentric’s category.

The resulting article, Sist jeg var her var i 1865 by Ørjan Nilsson (BA: Aug 27, 2012) also reported that the Canadian singer-songwriter had purchased a hot dog earlier and this interaction [via Google Translate]:

Reporter: You’ve been here before. Do you remember anything of Bergen concerts in 1988?

Leonard CohenI think it was in 1865, just after the Civil War

Laughter from the tour crew ensues

Photos: Leonard Cohen & Fellow Monk Enjoy Ice Cream On A Stick – L.A. 1996


As the recently posted photo of Leonard Cohen contemplating a Popsicle indicates, the Canadian singer-songwriter has a thing for ice cream & frozen novelties.  While these screen captures from the Armelle Brusq documentary, “Leonard Cohen. Spring 1996. A Portrait,” are imperfect, the content is revealing and. well, delightful. The two images above show Leonard Cohen and a fellow Zen monk chowing down on the frozen concoction. The shot below shows Cohen, money in hand, waiting to purchase items from an ice cream truck in a Los Angeles neighborhood.

Leonard (& Adam) Cohen And The Bagel – Montreal

Leonard Cohen was and always will be a great friend of the Bagel, but unfortunately Leonard doesn’t hang out in Montreal anymore. When he was here, you’d always find Leonard sitting at the bar having his allongé. The nicest, sweetest guy, and again, part of the family. He never wanted to talk about himself. He would want to talk about you: ‘How are you my friend?’ Adam [Cohen, Leonard’s son] also comes in when he’s in town, with his band. He hangs out, is very quiet, but if you ask him for a little favour, an autograph, he’s always happy to oblige as Leonard is 

[What does Leonard Cohen get for breakfast?] Leonard is a very simple man. A couple of eggs, some bacon, a bagel, an allongé. But usually just his coffee, a couple of coffees he likes. Very sweet man, very cool. We don’t make a big, deal, he doesn’t make a big deal. Again, it’s a variety of people who come in here.. quotedown2
