Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Found this, by accident - as it should be: LC + Jennifer Warnes, "Silent Night", Brighton, England, 1979. Needs to be cleaned up/enhanced. But - enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym5ip4CaOho

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

By later in June, 2008, Leonard had started a tour and had arrived in the UK. The venues, before he turned up at Glastonbury Festival that month, ranged from the modest to medium size. But Glastonbury was different. It was huge. How would the crowd respond? Would it respond at all? Would many, or an...

Re: Iranian Canadian Journalist saved by L. Cohen

As Mirka has noted, some have been deeply depressed and near suicide and Leonard's songs have saved them. But sadly not Daphne Richardson, nor I suspect many others who we do not hear of. re Daphne [and LC]...some interesting comments here: http://agirlwithkaleidoscopeeyes.blogspot.com/2005/10/i-ch...

Re: TEL AVIV CONCERT

I'm really happy Leonard is performing in Israel. I'll be even happier if he performs in Palestine too. Please Leonard do. i suspect that word has reached Leonard that many fans are not happy about Tel Aviv if that goes ahead without a concert in Palestine. it's a delicate issue; he has many fans i...
