Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Just can't believe this year... can't believe there's no more Leonard. His lyrics are ingrained in me, his words have comforted me many a time.

Re: Listen to "Banjo"

For me, the "banjo" is a powerful metaphor that is making a reappearance in Leonard's work. In Boogie Street , he "tidied up the kitchenette and tuned the old banjo" as the "traffic jam" awaited him. He was back on Boogie Street, back in the commotion of the lights, the dance of men and women, sex,...

Re: Leonard on Jarvis Cocker BBC Radio6 29 Jan.

Love them both anyway so it was very touching to hear one interview the other. I thought it was a very warm interview as you could hear the respect Jarvis has for Leonard.
