The first song I fell in love with
Leonard Cohen – ‘Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye’
“I was brokenhearted, I’d been dumped. Back at school that was a really big deal – the end of the world. I’d just bought Cohen’s greatest hits on cassette.
This came on and something really magical happened. It was a transcendental experience. I was the song. I remember falling to the ground, bursting into tears and crying for about 20 minutes”...

CHELSEA HOTEL NO.2, LEONARD COHEN
I’m a huge Leonard Cohen fan and this was one of the first songs I learned to play on the acoustic guitar.
I was fascinated by Janis Joplin at the time and this was basically the story of him and her in a hotel room, having sex and doing drugs.
His lyrics are masterful and so simple. Leonard Cohen remains an influence on me to this day-you just have to listen to “In The Cold Light Of Morning” on our “Meds” album to hear his impact.
