2016 has taken some major musical icons from us, and sadly, another one has left us today.
Sony Music Canada has confirmed Leonard Cohen’s death on the singer’s Facebook page.
“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the statement read. “We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief.”
Leonard Cohen was 82 years old.
A cause of death has not been given at this time.
RIP to a true Canadian Legend.
