We live in such interesting times, The Prince of Wales has declared his devotion to Leonard Cohen.
Next we'll discover that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth has a widey for Rob Zombie...
LONDON: At last we know how the Prince of Sorrows, or Prince Charles, unwinds - by listening to his favourite singer, the Poet Laureate of Pessimism.
The future king is a big fan of Leonard Cohen, the Canadian folk-rock musician whose albums, in the words of one reviewer, should be sold with razor blades.
Charles, 57, said of his own favourite, Cohen: "He's remarkable ... I mean, the orchestration is fantastic and the words, the lyrics and everything.
He's a remarkable man and he has this incredibly sort of laid-back gravelly voice. It's terrific stuff."
