Leonard Cohen on Janis Joplin

Leonard Cohen plays the O2 in Dublin tonight and tomorrow night, 11th and 12th September.

25 years ago Leonard Cohen spoke to John McKenna for a two part radio programme titled ‘How the heart approaches what it yearns’. The programme was named after a Paul Simon song.

First broadcast on 5 September 1988 Leonard Cohen talks about his heroes and those who suffer for the art. The focus of this particular clip is Janis Joplin and the song ‘Chelsea Hotel’.
