He's Your Man

The big sold-out Leonard Cohen show is tonight at the Academy of Music. If he's half as good as he was at the Beacon Theater in New York in February, it'll be a fabulous show. The poet/singer-songwriter is 74 years old, which doesn't make him quite ancient enough to be "the little Jew who wrote the Bible," as he claims to be in "The Future," which he does here in a clip from The Jools Holland Show recorded back when his hair was not quite so gray as it is now.
