Joni Mitchell Hugging Leonard Cohen

11

This photo of Joni Mitchell hugging Leonard Cohen was taken in 1967 – they had a fling during that time after being introduced to each other by Judy Collins at the Newport Folk Festival.

Read more about the background of this photo on Heck Of A Guy. Here are two lovely live performances: California by Joni Mitchell and So Long Marianne by Leonard Cohen. And both are Canadians (which made me think of This American Life’s episode of Who's Canadian).

    @saidseni and @disdis Mine too! I have a Leonard Cohen tattoo and my photos (sadly digital ones) were featured on the Heck of a Guy site a while ago which you can see here - 1heckofaguy.com/2011/06/16/leonard-cohen-solitary-in-bourne…

    @Saidseni - he was really lovely!
    @nicolas_noir - I like that. I was thinking about Cohen, not sure how Dave feels though

    Bit Jewish. But better than Chandler which is the genuine name of someone a friend teaches in a Leeds high school! And Dave with hair! Oh em gee!
