Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I never found religion, though I was always slightly jealous of those who found comfort in some form of belief. But ever since I was 14 there was one man who I could turn to in the darkest moments. His was a unique understanding of the interrelationships between love and death and war and sex and ha...

biography being serialisedthis week on UK Radio 4

Just in case the UK crowd hadn't spotted it, a biography of Leonard Cohen is being serialised at 9.45 - 10.00 am each day this week on Radio 4. Worth a listen.

Here's the BBC iPlayer link to today's episode:

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LG Arena, Birmingham UK - Sunday 8 Septe

Probably the only good thing about progressive illness is it's predictability. Thus I was able to follow Leonard and co to six cities in 08 and 09 knowing it was probably my last chance. And so it turned out to be. I hadn't felt too sad about missing the current tour, largely by denying that it was ...

Mary, just random, chronological, order I suspect. Hence Etta James rubs shoulders with Funkadelic :D

BBC radio 5's "Virtual Jukebox"

UK insomniacs will probably have stumbled upon BBC radio 5's "Up All Night" programme. Every Saturday a track gets added to the "Virtual Jukebox" by listeners nominating and voting. I know "Suzanne" has been nominated before now and failed to be voted in, but last night "Tower Of Song" was voted in ...

Re: OLD IDEAS WORLD TOUR: CONCERTS AND TICKET INFO

"his only UK appearance of 2012" so why is it buried away on the wrong side of London for 90% of the country to get to! Given the site's rep for holding disabled parkers back for two hours I'll have to miss this one! Are there no similar suites in the MIDDLE of the country? Poor show this, very poor!

Re: "Leonard is talking about touring again"

Wonderful news, but let's not get all ageist in our comments again.
Les Paul was still performing at 93, so here's to another 17 years, at least :)

Just hoping I live long enough!

Re: NPR:vote for the 50 great voices in recorded history

I'm boycotting until my request that Jim Morrison be re-instated is heard, but if Pavarotti is also not good enuff there's hope yet :)

Re: Isle of Wight release - all details

Of course, it doesn't change the fact that there's NO Isle of Wight performance on DVD as we were thinking ............. apart from Disc One: DVD – Chapters: 1. Intro: Diamonds In The Mine • 2. Famous Blue Raincoat • 3. “It’s A Large Nation” • 4. Bird On The Wire • 5. One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong • 6....

Re: Isle of Wight release - all details

The best indicator of the extent of the hyperbole in the statement is probably the description of "the most incendiary performance of Jimi Hendrix’s career". OK, so I slept through it, and waited 25 years to see it on video, but even allowing for all that anticipation it was NOT "the most incendiary...

Re: New leonardcohenforum.com group on Facebook

My son signed me up for Facebook a while back, I logged in and thought "what's all this about?" and didn't return for six months. When I did I suddenly was back in touch with 50 old school friends and getting to know several aquaintances much more. I joined a group called "If I'm going to listen to ...
