Leonard Cohen – In Person and In Spirit
Adam Cohen has released a video promoting his new album, “Like A Man,” in which he talks about finding his place as part of his father’s heritage rather than rebelling against that notion. Consequently, Leonard Cohen appears often in this brief video, including in the shot above of him with Adam’s son. (Rufus Wainwright, father of Leonard Cohen’s granddaughter, also makes a couple of 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 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 first image 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 second photo, taken by Dominique Issermann, shows Leonard Cohen playing guitar on that same terrace.
Leonard and Adam Cohen Are Interviewed At Leonard Cohen’s Montreal Home
The first image is a screen capture from the “Like A Man” video showing Adam Cohen pondering the dialog he is delivering.
The second image is a screen capture 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 first image is a screen capture from the “Like A Man” video showing birds wheeling across the sky over Hydra.
The second image is a screen capture from 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 wires in Hydra that, when they were first installed on Hydra, inspired Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On A Wire.”
