New book I am in - Leonard Cohen: A Remarkable Life

    Besides being published with my own book Herbs of the Northern Shaman (O-Books) I have just been included in a seventh title by other authors who have written about me in their own books. I now have two pages in Leonard Cohen: A Remarkable Life, by Anthony Reynolds and published by Omnibus Press in hardback. I have been a fan of Cohen's since my late teens but never dreamed I would end up in a book about him!

    WOW!  That's amazing news.  I'm a big fan of Leonard Cohen - he's such a soulful singer songwriter.

    Now I want to know how and why you came to be included in such a book. But only if you wish to share.  smile

    Thanks for your complimentary comments, Shadesbreath, Randy and Money Glitch!
    Travelespresso, I am a friend of the author Anthony Reynolds and he knew I had seen Cohen live at the Isle of Wight all those years back. He interviewed me about seeing Cohen at the IOW and my memories and thoughts are published in his book.

    Anthony Reynold's back in Cardiff now isn't he? I think we should arrange (another) Meltdown reunion someday. wink

      Ah. That would scupper it then. I'd heard you were. Misinformation!

    I love Leonard Cohen, and its especially cool because he's a fellow canadian!  congrats Bard, you're on a roll!  is it impolite to ask in what context you are in his book?

    Leonard Cohen is a genius

    Through association with him, if follows that you must be as well

    Dave, I was there for a week recently.
    Thank you, Shazwellyn!
    Megs78, I had already answered that but here is my reply again:
