Leonard Cohen, Iggy Pop, and The Woman Who Knew Exactly What She Wanted

What Do Women Want?

A. Leonard Cohen
B. Iggy Pop
C. Profound conversations
D. All of the Above

Leonard Cohen gives this account of a case for which the correct answer was D - All of the Above:

I visited Iggy [Pop] in the studio. Somebody showed us a clipping with a personal ad, a young woman looking for “a man with the mind of Leonard Cohen and the body of Iggy Pop.”

We wrote a polite letter suggesting we meet sometime, both signed it and placed my telephone number under it.

The girl answered. Unfortunately, her only interest was in leading profound conversations.

Let’s see - two stars of contemporary music team up to meet the exacting criteria listed by a woman in a personal ad. In return, the woman offers - heavy duty chat.

Well, that does explain a lot about my own previous online dating experiences.

Nonetheless, every time I read Leonard’s story about him and Iggy working in tandem to pick up a girl I can’t help but smile - and again ponder how to convince Leonard to sign on as my wingman.

I'd be happy with a man with the mind of Leonard Cohen and the body of Leonard Cohen personally. :D

That's such an amusing story!

Hey, Steve, maybe they can team up like Riggs and Murtaugh. They'll both find themselves saying, "I'm too old for this shit!"

or...has anyone considered that Leonard may have taken Iggy's stuff. After all, he is on tour break as of Aug 3 (and maybe home in Montreal!). The robbery occured on the 4th. Can Leonard account for his whereabouts on that night? Hmmmmm. Maybe he is chucking the Fall tour and plans to cash in on this heist instead.

I kid, I kid.

No prob, Maarten. Glad to be of assistance. We should all thank the author of that post, the great researcher Blair Miller from San Francisco, also the author of this Dylan related post, the best in the history of Internet, methinks:
