Shh – Don’t Tell Leonard
September 21, 2011 is Leonard Cohen’s 77th birthday, an event Heck Of A Guy is commemorating with a video of scenes from Leonard Cohen’s life and photos of fans expressing their affection for Mr. Cohen, all set to “I Love Leonard Cohen” by Robin Grey.1
Heck Of A Guy is offering an early look at the celebratory extravaganza to viewers who agree not to inform Mr. Cohen that the video is now available. After all, now that celebrating Leonard Cohen’s birthday with a music video of favorite images associated with the Canadian singer-songwriter has become a Heck Of A Guy tradition,2 it is all but certain that Leonard has been eagerly anticipating this year’s production – and we don’t want to spoil the fun for him, do we?
