When great artists cover great artists…

On her excellent 1999 album Vagabonds Ways the former 60s Rolling Stones connected celebrity & tremendous voice Marianne Faithfull covered the late Leonard Cohen’s classic Tower Of Song (1988) in a truly captivating and serene way with lots of respect and love
for the author. Only last month she included the song in her set at the Bataclan venue
in Paris. A now, unfortunately, world-famous concert hall because of the awful terrorist attack of last year when gunmen killed 90 people inside the building. The 69-year old singer’s (partially living in France’s capital) tribute to Cohen on 25 November was really special. Find out here why…

    I love Len. Such a loss. But at least he left the music. I hadn’t heard that Marianne version. Thanks JL.
