Rock ‘n’ Roll? Well, certainly, this man belongs into some Hall of Fame:

I especially loved the insider pun: “I reminded of the prophetic statement of Jon Landau. In the early 70s he said: I’ve seen the future of rock ‘n’roll and it is not Leonard Cohen.”

Well, my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I’m hungry for love but I’m not coming on
I’m just paying my rent every day
Oh in the tower of song

I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?
Hank Williams hasn’t answered me yet
But I hear him coughing all night long
A hundred floors above me
In the tower of song

I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice
And twenty-seven angels from the great beyond
They tied me to this table right here
In the tower of song


early morning sounds
a songbird’s tune, cats in love
the awakening

Back on the road!
