I caught the darkness
It was drinking from your cup

Drinking from your cup
I said is this contagious?
You said just drink it up

“[I handed] Mitch his guitar in the voice of a madman as ‘The Golden Fist of Marrakesh.’” Leif Bodnarchuk

The above photo of Mitch Watkins was taken by Maarten Massa at the Sept 20, 2013 Leonard Cohen Amsterdam Concert. That shot, especially when grouped with the photo below taken by Eugene McLaughlin and posted earlier at Photos From The Leonard Cohen Birmingham Concert: The Good Time Guys – Roscoe Beck & Mitch Watkins, makes a strong prima facie case that Mitch Watkins is happy being on tour with Leonard Cohen.
