Re: Statement from Cohen Estate: Unauthorized use of "Hallelujah" as finale to Convention Festivities

thank you, but remember we are not here to discuss biden versus trump, such messages belong in the 'politics' section. I didn't say anything about Biden or the election. It was purely about Trump and the family's decision to make a statement about him using Hallelujah, which is the topic of this th...

Re: Statement from Cohen Estate: Unauthorized use of "Hallelujah" as finale to Convention Festivities

Political parties aside (Cohen may have been "neither left nor right"), do people here really have any doubt how Leonard would have felt about a figure like Trump? The current president is pretty much character-wise the antithesis of who Cohen was as a man. In his life and his work, Cohen was a prof...

Re: The Demons of Leonard Cohen

Fair enough, Maarten. And I understand the distinction the author is making. But Francis could have easily entitled the book "The Daimons of Leonard Cohen" and it would have conveyed that distinction a lot better. I could see no other reason to use the spelling "Demon," which is more generally assoc...

Re: The Demons of Leonard Cohen

What a terrible title for a book. Yopietro Indeed, at first glance, the title of this book seems a bit odd but if you would take the effort of reading it when it becomes widely available you will probably agree with me that the title is actually pretty well chosen. The "demon" refers to the Latin w...

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

As for Leonard's final thoughts/instructions, that seems to me to be something that should simply be posted on the website, rather than something that people should have to pay for. Agreed. This feels like a weirdly inappropriate thing to monetize. It brings to mind icecreamtruck's informercial fee...

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

A lot of hype and build-up for this and honestly, it feels like a letdown. An expensive vanity collector's box with no new creations.

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

So I have been think about what the news may be and I think it may have to do with The Future 1993 tour. Maybe a new interactive website with interviews, reviews, photos, setlists, concert recordings of the tour? There are a few clues that are pointing me in this direction. The first is of course t...

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

‘ because the project is quite ambitious and complex, a few more days were needed’ pietro. Ok. I read that above in Jarkko’s original post. And my point, pironi, is that a press release for an upcoming album would generally not constitute an ambitious or complex project that would need a few more d...

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

It seems like if the production team needs a few more days of work on the project, then it is most likely not an announcement of a new upcoming album. Album release announcements usually let the news out into the world that a new album is coming, the title, and the release date. There wouldn't be ex...

Re: Waiting For The News To Come

Wasn't Leonard supposedly working on new instrumental versions of some of his tracks with Patrick Leonard? Indeed, he was. They also were working on an R 'n B album too: https://ew.com/article/2016/11/11/leonard-cohen-patrick-leonard-rb-album/ For the latter, the R 'n B ablum, as the article says t...

Re: Behind The Song: Leonard Cohen, "Everybody Knows"

You would think that someone who was writing a "Behind the Song" piece for a magazine on songwriting would know the difference between an oud and a "flashy Spanish guitar."
