Leonard Cohen, iconic musician and one of the greatest lyricists of our lifetimes, is dead at 82. While we settle in to listen to “Chelsea Hotel #2” for the rest of the night and prepare to hunt for rare vinyl copies of his work this weekend, the world mourns the loss of yet another talented and beloved musician in 2016.

Reactions from Cohen’s devoted fans and other’s around the music world ranged from quoting his lyrics without further comment due to the sense of loss, or commenting on how his music affected their lives directly. It will be a long time before the world sees another poet quite like Cohen, so able to write and compose music that gets to the heart of the human experience at the highest level.
