Replies: 158

Briefly, there is something all fans and supporters of his work can do/not do. Do not copy his recordings. Do not allow anyone to copy recordings you have paid for. Acquire Leonard's recordings only by paying for them at legitimate commercial outlets. This way his business will survive by refusing t...

Have we omitted Joni Mitchell here because she slighted Leonard? :wink: I think Diane has noted the most significant. Tina Turner for example must be the leader here if we are talking about rocking hard. Her stage energy is unequalled at that performance level with regard to her sisters. And like Mi...

Hi all. Sorry that the story re Taj appeared to be so distressing to some but that recount is simply how it was. It is also a lesson to not underestimate kangaroos as cute, cuddly creatures from 'down under'. They are very powerful and intelligent animals and have been known to attack humans on occa...

Reading a little further, beyond the specific comments on Leonard and Bob, I get the impression that Joni is a little miffed that her work is not so widely recognised as some of her contemporaries, not even by her own record company. That she has tried sooo hard to be totally original and with impec...

In years past I have endured periods of vegetarianism but ultimately returned to eating meat of various types because it improved my health, strength and fitness. I prefer seafood but I do include red meat in my diet. Mind you I prefer red wine! :wink: There is no way we can survive without killing ...

Hello again folks. The old owl is back to his roost. Rather belatedly I have just picked up on this thread. Regards and sympathy to T and all those who have "that broken feeling" from losing a dear friend of fur or feather, two legs or four legs, or even scales or flippers. About 6 months ago we los...

Tom, your explanation does indeed change perspective on those lines. But this is not apparant without the exp. Depends on how you interpret "the fall" I guess. For me I see the glassy surf break at an Aussie beach on a hot sunny day and even after your exp. that image still persists. See how one's c...
