THING #25: ”EVERYBODY KNOWS” (LEONARD COHEN) w/ JHEREK BISCHOFF
i don’t think i need to go into what a huge leonard cohen devotee i am, his death hit me harder than bowie’s, harder than prince’s, even though it was the least unexpected of the three. he was old. he said he was ready to go. but still. the loss of him is like losing family. jherek and i texted each other the night he died. we knew we’d do something. we put on our gloves of muscial-death-work, and we made “everybody knows”, one of my favorite leonard songs of all time. we also enlisted neil gaiman for this cover of “democracy”, which was released through PEN America.
