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 ...

Even now, Friday UK time 1230, there are pairs of regular tickets available from Evenko: Centre, well forward in the front block. Our tickets (same price) from the pre-sale are in row LL to the left. However we were happy enou...

Hi Steve, haven't come across him before. I know that 'FBR' is a favourite of yours. Enjoyed both of these. Will keep an eye out for him in the future.

Hopefully catch up in Montreal. You too Janet!

Re: TOWER OF SONG: MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN, MONTREAL

"Looks like a great line up. A DVD would be fab for those who can't make the trip to Montreal." Quote from the official announcement "... Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winning director Jack Bender (Game of Thrones, Lost, The Sopranos, Mr. Mercedes, etc.) will film the event for an upcoming special".
