Léonard Cohen Wiki Biography

Leonard Norman Cohen was born on the 21st September 1934, in Westmount, Quebec, Canada, and was a musician, singer and songwriter as well as a novelist, poet and painter. Leonard Cohen was widely recognized for his poetry and songs, which revolve around politics, isolation, religion, sexuality, humanity as well as personal relationships, including among plenty of others “Let Us Compare Mythologies” and “Book of Longing” poetry books, as well as “Songs from a Room” (1969), “Songs of Love and Hate” (1971), “I’m Your Man” (1988), “The Future” (1992) “You Want It Darker” (2016) studio albums. He passed away in 2016.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this legendary musician and poet accumulated for life? How rich Leonard Cohen was? It is estimated by authoritative sources that the total amount of Leonard Cohen’s net worth, as of early 2017, would be around $40 million, acquired through his writing as well as music careers, which were active between 1956 and his death.

Leonard was born into the middle-class family of Marsha Klonitsky and Nathan Cohen, an owner of the clothing store, and besides Canadian, was of Jewish, Lithuanian and Polish ancestry. After attending Roslyn Elementary School, he enrolled at Herzliah High School but later transferred to Westmount High School. During his teenage years, Cohen became deeply interested in poetry as well as music and performing, and founded his own country-folk band Buckskin Boys. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at McGill University from which he graduated with Bachelor of Arts degree in 1955. However, Cohen continued his education and obtained an undergraduate degree from the McGill Faculty of Law, and later enrolled at Columbia University School of General Studies in New York, USA. During his college years he won the Chester MacNaghten Literary Competition, and also began publishing his poems. The latter venture provided the modest basis for Leonard Cohen’s net worth.

In 1956, Cohen published his first book of poetry – “Let Us Compare Mythologies”. In the following year, he transferred to Montreal, Canada, where he began working on his new book of poetry named “The Spice-Box of Earth” released in 1961, which helped him to gain wider recognition. Through the rest of the 1960s, Cohen extensively worked on his poetry which resulted in publishing three more novels and poetry books, all being commercially successful. These achievements dramatically increased Leonard Cohen’s net worth.

Struggling to sustain momentum, in 1967 Cohen relocated to the US in order to pursue a music career, and in December that year he released his debut studio album “Songs of Leonard Cohen”, featuring what later became the hit single “Suzanne”. The album’s solid commercial success was followed by another studio album – “Songs from a Room” – which was warmly received by the critics and was a huge commercial success too. These accomplishments contributed to the total size of Leonard Cohen’s wealth by a large margin.

In his music career, Leonard Cohen released 14 studio albums and eight live albums featuring 44 hit singles including, apart from those already mentioned, “New Skin for the Old Ceremony” (1974) and “Hallelujah” (1984). In 1991, he was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, while in 2008 he became a member of Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. For his great contribution to music, poetry and Canadian culture in general, Leonard Cohen was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1991, Companion of the Order of Canada in 2003, as well as a Grand Officer of the National Order of Quebec in 2008.

When it comes to his personal life, through the 1960s Cohen was romantically involved with Marianne Ihlen, while in the 1970s he was dating an artist, Suzanne Elrod; although they never married, before splitting in 1979, they welcomed a son and a daughter. During the 1980s, Leonard was in a relationship with a French photographer Dominique Issermann, while in the 1990s he was romantically connected to actress Rebecca De Mornay.

Leonard Cohen was diagnosed with cancer, and he passed away at the age of 82 in his home in Los Angeles, California, on the 7th November 2016.

1Often writes about religious or political themes
2His distinctive singing voice, which has become significantly deeper over time
1Before the pesky little problem of losing everything I had, I had the feeling I was treading water - kind of between jobs. A bit at loose ends. When the money problem arose, what bothered me most was that I was spending all my time with lawyers, accountants, forensic accountants.. I thought, if God wants to bore me to death I guess I have to accept it.
2[on his plan, as he turns eighty, to resume smoking] I'm really looking forward to this moment. A young nurse in a white uniform, white lisle stockings, carrying a pack of cigarettes on a silver tray will walk across the stage..and the pack will be opened. It will be gleaming like the pillars of the Parthenon. And she'll light me up. It's going to be good.
3I like the life on the road because it is so regulated and deliberate. Everything funnels down to the concert. You know exactly what to do during the day and you don't have to improvise.
4I had wonderful love, but I did not give back wonderful love. I was unable to reply to their love. Because I was obsessed with some fictional sense of separation, I couldn't touch the thing that was offered me, and it was offered me everywhere.
5There is no difference between a poem and a song. Some were songs first, and some were poems first and some were simultaneous. All of my writing has guitars behind it, even the novels.
6I never really liked poetry readings; I liked to read poetry by myself, but I liked singing, chanting my lyrics to this jazz group. It felt a lot easier. (On his metamorphosis from poet to musician)
7My songs last about 30 years - that's about the lifespan of a Volvo. But they're designed to last as long as possible. My own critical examination of the songs is very severe: if it can survive examination by the heart, the mind and the gut, then I think the song can last a little while.
8We used to play music for fun. Much more than now. Now nobody picks up a guitar unless they're paid for it.
9I always considered myself a minor writer. My province is small, and I try to explore it very, very thoroughly.
10The sole indiscretion in my professional life. - 1994 BBC radio interview detailing his regret on revealing Janis Joplin's name, for whom he'd written, "Chelsea Hotel No. 2
11I didn't want to write for pay. I wanted to be paid for what I write.
1Marianne Ihlen for whom 'So Long, Marianne' was written, died on July 29, 2016 in Oslo.
2Daughter Lorca Cohen mothered a daughter, Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen (b. 2 February 2011 in Los Angeles), with singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright.
3Los Angeles, California [June 2007]

5Judy Collins is generally credited with discovering Cohen, having been the very first artist to record his "Suzanne" and "Dress Rehearsal Rag" for her album "In My Life" (1966).
6Is of Polish and Lithuanian Jewish Descent. His family claim to be descendants of Aaron, brother of Moses.
7During the 1990s, he became a monk in California in a quest for spirituality.
8He was awarded the O.C. (Officer of the Order of Canada) on April 19, 1991 and the C.C. (Companion of the Order of Canada) on October 10, 2002 for his services to music.
9Has two children with his ex-girlfriend, Suzanne Elrod. Son, Adam Cohen, born 1972; and daughter, Lorca Cohen, born 1974.
10Is in the same branch Of Buddhism as Peter Matthiessen, Michael O'Keefe, Gary Snyder, Peter Coyote, Bernie Glassman, Reb Anderson, Philip Whalen, Richard Baker, Pat O'Hara (Enkyo O'Hara), Soen Roshi and John Daido Loori.
11He is referenced in the work of several other music artists. He is mentioned by name in the Nirvana song "Pennyroyal Tea" (lead singer Kurt Cobain was a great fan of his), the Marillion song "Montreal" and the Mercury Rev song "A Drop In Time".
12His "Greatest Hits" collection was voted the most depressing album ever, the vote made by a British magazine.
