alex turner from arctic monkeys is leonard-fan

interview by kevin eg perry in time out magazine.

...he tells me he's been back at his place in east london and that he spent the previous evening dusting off his cd collection.

`i pulled out "the songs of leonard cohen" and it still had a sticker on it. £14.99!`

money well spent, i suggest.

`totally`, he agrees. f***king "suzanne" : what a song!

`i don't have an instagram account but if i did i'd have grammed it, saying exactly that : "money well spent"`...
