Collins is generally credited with discovering poet-songwriter Leonard Cohen, having been the very first artist to record his "Suzanne" and "Dress Rehearsal Rag" for her album "In My Life" (1966).
Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
I have always been grateful that I did not fall in love with Leonard (Cohen) in the way that I fell in love with his songs. I could have, certainly.
The hippies and the young followers of the music are the ones who are extending themselves into more understanding, because they understand that personal isolation is not the answer and that it's life that is groovy, not killing and war and hypocrisy and the double standard. And acid is important to all this.
There's so much more understanding than there was a generation ago in this country. The be-in here was just overwhelming; a completely beautiful open experience, so friendly and so warm. At Monterey, the cops all had flowers on their motorcycles, and the police chief was so pleased with everything that he wore a wig to work Monday morning. There's just no other answer than to love and to get together and to be open. There's just no other choice, and part of this is being reflected in the music.
