For some reason the 25% discount code BLACKFRIDAY is generating the response, when entered at checkout "Unable to find a valid discount matching the code entered". Appreciate any help or advice... :(

Thanks for this personal insight Joe. Poignant, funny and moving. For me, you’ve captured your enthusiasm for this publication, and you admiration for Leonard’s work perfectly. Your highlighted choices here have further whetted my appetite for more of “The Flame”.

See you down the road….

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

While it’s exciting and welcome news that we will have the opportunity to experience some of Leonard’s unfinished songs, I think we should reserve judgement. I’ve seen Adam perform live and have a couple of his album recordings. I’ve enjoyed what he does and would go to see him play again. However, ...

Re: Madonna Performs 'Haleluya' At Met Gala 2018

Perhaps Leonard and Madonna met when they were both inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together in 2008, and agreed to cover some of each other’s material to be surfaced 10 years later.
Has anyone come across Leonard’s versions of “Like a Virgin” or “Papa Don’t Preach”?

I'm not sure if this article has made it onto the forum before. So apologies if it has already been included somewhere here already. It was published at the end of November 2017, a year after Leonard's passing. I came across this insight from Leonard's classmate, at McGill university, Kenneth Asch w...

Re: Budapest Event 2018 Registration

Hi Eva, Can you confirm that you are only acknowledging emails, and adding names to the attendee list, once you receive full payment? I registered several weeks ago with all details but haven't provided you with the payment yet. I presume that is why there has been no response so far? Seems fair, I ...
