Austin City Limits

Thanks Jarkko. I would hope the whole of second the concert is released, as it has to one of the best (possibly the best) live recordings of Leonard.

Where it all began

I first heard Leonard on "The Rock Machine Turns You On " compilation singing "Sisters of Mercy". It was 1969, and I was seventeen. I was mesmerised by the song and kept playing it ...unconsciously perhaps, I knew that this song had an integral part in my destiny. I had no idea what Leonard looked l...
