“You’ll be hearing from me baby, long after I’m gone…” Leonard Cohen, rock’s poet laureate, is the subject of the latest edition of Uncut’s Ultimate Music Guides, a series of in-depth magazines that provide definitive overviews of the greatest musicians of the past 60 years. Full of interviews from the archives of NME, Melody Maker and Uncut, many unseen for decades, the Ultimate Music Guide to Leonard Cohen tells the complete story of a major artist ruefully trying to make some sense of the mysteries of life and love; trying to persevere on a quest towards transcendence, with caveats. Alongside the rich quotes from Cohen himself, you’ll also find in-depth new reviews of every album, book and volume of poetry. What emerges is a complete portrait of a man who started and finished his career as too old for this sort of thing, by most measures, but whose maturity and poetic insight enabled him to loom, benignly, over nearly every single one of his peers. He’s your man.
