To my dear friends and well-wishers:

First, I would like to thank many who have written, sent messages, and even gifts over the past few days. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to have received the many kind thoughts and prayers. No one could ever dispute that the Leonard Cohen community of fans is the most thoughtful, considerate, and yes, involved community of any... certainly any I have ever had the pleasure to know. The concern shown regarding my health in the last few days has touched me deeply, and I am very moved by the show of affection.

After undergoing a battery of tests at Jewish hospital in Louisville, KY, I'm happy to report that the results of the exams were very good, and I'm in fine health other than suffering from exhaustion and dehydration.

The upshot is, I am fine, a return to full health is already underway, and I was delighted to be back on stage with my friends last night in Wallingford, Connecticut. Thank you again, dear friends for the kind thoughts and your heartfelt concern. I look forward to seeing you down the road soon.

Sincerely,
Roscoe

Thank you for posting that Jarkko & thank you to Roscoe for such a sweet & thoughtful message!

And to our Dear Roscoe,

I'm so glad to hear that you are in good health, & I was so happy & relieved to see you back on stage last night in Wallingford! I saw your stand-up base on the stage while waiting for the concert to begin, & I took that as a promising sign. And when you walked onto the stage, I yelled out, "Yay, Roscoe!", but since I am kind of shy, I probably didn't yell loud enough for you to hear me. But please know that my heart leapt with joy at the sight of your beautiful presence, & at the very welcome return of the brilliant sound of your bass & singing.

We love you & need you, so please take care of yourself, rest as much as you need to, & drink lots of water & tea!

Hope to see you again, in full health, very soon.

Love,
Rachel

Dear Roscoe,
I’m so glad you are feeling better! And hope to see you playing in Europe soon.
Normally when I’m feeling ill, my doctor prescribes me “one Cohen a day”, when it’s bad “three Cohen a day” (I think an overdose would do as well) and when it’s really very bad “a ticket a week”… I asked social security in Belgium, but they don’t refund anything of that :shock: ... I wonder why? Laws should be changed… :lol:
Your prescription is take a rest from time to time, drink lots of water or tea and keep on rocking. Take care!
Warmest regards,
MaryEmma
