I see. Well, I just wanted to ask, just in case. I hope you don't think I'm the sort of crazy fan that will intrude his privacy or storm the stage or his hotels. I'm really not. I AM keen on meeting artists, but I will not be rude or anything. I'm always polite and I am very shy, so I seldom even dare to ask to meet them, I just silently hope they will take the initative for a fan-signing or such themselves. Of course I have gotten the impression that Leonard is a very private man, but I didn't know it was like that. I guess it's because I've mostly experienced that the artists I see at concerts are very open to meeting fans, so it just surprised me a bit.
Anyway, of course I won't disrespect Leonard wishes, I was simply curious if there was a possibility that I could meet him. Since there is not, I won't sweat it.
Q: That would most surprise his fans?
KO: Probably his shyness, or at least that was what has surprised me at the beginning.
Q: Could you give an example of Leonard Cohen’s shyness?
KO: You would expect someone like him to be accustomed to reactions he gets from his fans. While his response is, of course. always genuine, at the same time, it isn’t, I don’t think, easy for him to respond to compliments because of his shyness.
