Leonard Cohen Wins Best Rock Performance Grammy For You Want It Darker

The late Leonard Cohen was awarded the first solo Grammy Award of his career at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards tonight. The legend has been awarded Best Rock Performance for “You Want It Darker,” the title track from his final studio album. In 2010, Cohen was given the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; in 2015, his debut album Songs of Leonard Cohen was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Cohen only ever won a Grammy once in his lifetime: a collaborative award for his participation on Herbie Hancock’s Joni Mitchell covers album River: The Joni Letters, which won Album of the Year in 2008.
