Prelude Nr.1 to Leonard Cohen’s 80th Birthday Celebrations
STRAIGHT FROM THE PALLID HORSE’S MOUTH (never before revealed):
“It was back then, at the Chelsea Hotel. Ecstasy blown curtains, sweaty death performing live in the Sky. The dark stairways shivering in bloody accords, the walls echoing unborn melodies. That night, back then, the scent of hidden love suddenly filled every inch of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell, even the lobby of the hotel.” And only then, The Pallid Horse smiled, once again.
