Re: book about Chelsea Hotel

(guessing the book wouldn't even exist if it weren't for the song)
Thanks for the link. The rich history of this hotel stands on its own!

Re: Adam Cohen touring Australia

It looks like there is a lack of interest. Unfortunately he's not really generating much interest in his career for the future in doing this. Citing "due to commitments in Canada" seems a bit of a lame excuse and more an issue of organisational dysfunction. If it was a personal emergency it could b...

Re: Adam Cohen touring Australia

Yes the whole tour is cancelled as I understand it. He's going to disappoint a lot of people. Should get his act together, and management functioning better! Probably will affect his Australian prospects, it seems the bookings were good , at least for the show I was booked to see. Australia probably...

CONCERT REPORT: Sydney, Australia - November 16, 2013

Commenting on the quality of a Leonard Cohen concert is superfluous, it has all been said. The man is a marvel the way he sustains his energy and last nights concert was no exception. In fact he seemed physically more agile than ever and voice as sonorous. The band and singers great as usual with th...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Sydney, Australia, Nov. 8-9, 2010

Well it was a stunning first concert in Sydney with the "treats"of Avalanche, A Singer must Die and the new The Darkness(and it is dark!)thrown in. It was funny to see the band "hightail" it back down the stage steps when he launched into the former two songs; he obviously caught them unprepared. Wh...

If KD can go barefoot then Leonard can wear anything he wants. Besides I think the hat adds to his "dapperness"!

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

As presented in the Movie, the events around the concert in Jerusalem were interesting. It did clearly show a vulnerable( and emotionally unravelling) Leonard Cohen but with still an aspect of pretention or even "Prima Donna...ness" that seemed to be a product of the style of introspection of the ti...

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

Apparently it's appears that it is not set for release in Australia until November! Can anyone tell me if the UK version is 'all regions' or Region 2 only? Just looked on the package. It is ALL regions. But it is NTSC , so if you are in Aussie(PAL) you'll need to check that your DVD player/TV can p...

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

It is a tour de force and it is incredibly respectful to Leonard as an artist and man. I would hate to see this truth lost in legal maneouvering that seem to be about Sony at the very last moment realising that the film might sell in large numbers and they can make a buck or two. I feel no guilt wh...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Berlin, Germany, August 18, 2010

While I appreciate all comments the fact remains the shows could be different, and have indeed been different from the 2009 tour. But the difference appears inconsistent which seems a bit unfair for some audiences. I mean there has been enough new material (hopefully with more to come) and some prev...

Re: Songs From the Road - New DVD/CD, BluRay, LP

I see the Bluray is now listed for preorder at Amazon UK and at a very good price. Got my order in, this is one release I'm really looking forward to. Thankfully after the technical quality limitations of "Live in London" this one will be of much better quality picture and sound in high definition.

Re: Flying 4,000 miles to catch Cohen - Am I nuts?

Well if he's not playing Singapore and you have the means of course you did the right thing! It's not really that far! Although the Cambodia concert will be special. Hopefully someone will begin the momentum to have a Sydney GTG before the show( now that would be the icing on the cake...or in your c...

Re: Songs From the Road - New DVD/CD, BluRay, LP

Hope they release the Blu-ray as multi region. The one advertised on Amazon.com is region 1 (USA /Canada only).
