  1. Subjective I know. The finest poet who ever lived. Flowers for Hitler; Beautiful Losers plus the rest, and more lyrical, reflective achievements than any who have adored women could get near to, let alone surpass. From my teens, to my dotage my respect goes to Leonard. RIP.

  2. I should add, I purchased the new album the day it was released. Circumstance (namely a lack of peace and quiet) determined I could not listen until this sad day…in the little gym we have at the back of the house…worth the wait.

  3. splendid tribute. i can hear him now:

    I said to Hank Williams, how lonely does it get?
    Hank Williams hasn’t answered yet
    But I hear him coughing all night long
    Oh, 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
