Leonard Cohen Summertime Photo Fun
As a just-for-fun, easy-to-enjoy, summertime treat, Heck Of A Guy offers, from the private collection of Dominique BOILE, this 1967 original photo (click on image to enlarge) by Roz Kelly of a young Leonard Cohen smiling from his bed.1
This image will be familiar to many Cohen fans, especially those who also follow this blog. It has, for example, been previously featured on this site in Leonard Cohen and His Crazy Dream In 1968 where it appeared as an ad for the Songs Of Leonard Cohen album in the March 9, 1968 edition of The Beat. The copy reads
“I’ve been on the outlaw scene since I was 15. I had some thing in common with the beatniks, and even more things with the hippies. The next thing may be even closer to where I am.”
And again in Leonard Cohen Is In Rat Subterranean News,which featured the image illustrating the 1969 interview of Leonard Cohen by P. Dingle in Rat Subterranean News.
The Leonard Cohen Inexplicability Of The Day
Those readers who have grown accustomed to the arcana and pseudo-intellectual capriciousness that characterize DrHGuy posts need not fear; this photo does offer another unresolved Leonard Cohen puzzle to ponder:
Why the heck is Leonard Cohen wearing
a heavy knit turtleneck sweater to bed?
