Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I remember picking up The Future, reading the lyrics and thinking I must buy this and from then on he had me hooked. He had a way with words, spoken and in song, which made me want to listen and understand. As with all great people, his legacy will live on ....... My condolences to all his family an...

Re: Is it me .....

Leonard is in the UK so most of the reviews are coming from Brits and it is the British way to moan, often with good cause, so I guess grumpy is the way it's been for the last week or so. However, the show returns to Dublin this week so I think you can expect to see lots of reports full of Irish ex...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Leeds UK - Saturday 7 September 2013

I was in the 2nd row central, just behind you, Mike, and I fully agree with what you say about the interaction between the band members. That doesn't surprise but it remains remarkable. And they keep it so fresh. We may have missed a few songs but for me the main ones I really wanted to hear were p...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Leeds UK - Saturday 7 September 2013

Mike, I concur with all of your sentiments bar that one about the venue. There were some truly woeful seats in that place, particularly to the sides on the Floor level, as regards insultingly abject sightlines to the stage. .[/quote] Perhaps I should have qualified the statement with 'compared to ot...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Leeds UK - Saturday 7 September 2013

My only LC concert on this tour and, thanks to Jarkko and the tour promoters, I was in the middle seat of the front row in the central section. Firstly, a word about the arena ..... It's the best large indoor concert venue that I've been to - helpful staff, sensible parking arrangements and cost and...

Re: PRESALE TO THE UK SHOWS

Thanks Jarkko and Marie - front row for Leeds - a remarkably painless journey through the online booking process - hopefully the Leeds seating plan doesn't change on the night :D

Re: Beautiful Losers

Thanks for clarifying Mike! I have the January Mojo with Fleetwood Mac on the cover, but when I mentioned Gram Parsons, I was thinking of the February Uncut. Just been to Sainsburys and there are still some left and they're not on the top shelf :D Mind you, there's no reference to LC on the cover s...
