Q – As a big Leonard Cohen fan, what do you think of his latest period (say from the album ‘I’m your man’ until now) ? Do you still find both his music and lyrics interesting, in such a way you could imagine doing a cover of one of his recent songs ?

A – Much like his earlier work – the songs I love, I really love and the ones I don’t love perplex me. LC is very hit and miss, for me. But his hits are about my favourite songs by anyone.
