Dis­cov­er­ing Leonard Co­hen a lit­tle too late

NOW Magazine - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I just want to add my voice to the avalanche of oth­ers telling you that Jeff Buck­ley did not cover Leonard Co­hen’s Hal­lelu­jah in 1984’s Var­i­ous Po­si­tions (NOW, Novem­ber 17-23). Jeff Buck­ley cov­ered John Cale’s ver­sion, and it’s quite dif­fer­ent.

Ask­ing some­one who “dis­cov­ered” Co­hen in 1988 to write his obit might have been a mis­take.
