Leonard Cohen Inducted into Rock Hall

March 11, 2008

Master singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a speech by Lou Reed. Damien Rice performed "Hallelujah" in tribute. Cohen, who is amazingly 73, begins a world tour in June - his first in 15 years. So far there are no U.S. dates on the schedule (4 words - "road trip to Canada"). Here is the video from the induction ceremony. Watch it quick before VH1 pulls it down.
