Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

Today, I opened a PayPal account and contributed my share.
So happy that I (finally) became aware of the Hydra Bench Project! What a wonderful way to honour Our Man :)

I hope to come to Hydra some day and see all the beauty.

All good things

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oslo, August 6, 2010

What can I say? I saw Leonard in Oslo in July 2008 and then again in Oslo Spektrum last Friday, and each time I thought it just doesn't get any better.... this can't be topped. But it happens over and over again, everywhere. It's amazing how they manage to turn each performance into a special one, I...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Langesund July 16

I am glad that the Langesund concert was a happy and sunny event. Two weeks later the shores here were covered by heavy oil, and the air stinks. A big storm, and this ship ran aground in the middle of the night, just outside the concert area. It carried 1100 tons of oil. The coast, the birds, the be...

Re: Still Tickets for Langesund

According to the local newspaper of the Langesund area today, 12,000 tickets were out for sale - 8,500 are sold by now. The organizers are quite pleased. From experience, they count on more sales when the holiday season starts in July and the concert date (July 16) gets closer. As a warm-up, Norwegi...

Oh well, what a wonderful thing to happen, for those staying home. I saw Bob Dylan in Langesund some years ago, and Elton John. D...

Re: Has Leonard Ever Said......

Hello John,

Your memory works better than mine! Real poetry ... and very romantic too, isn't it. Funny to think that Leonard got inspired by listening to Fats Domino and his piano. Makes a lot of sense to me:-)


Best regards, Elsie

Re: Has Leonard Ever Said......

Interesting thread - thank you all for posting! I remember to have heard somewhere that Leonard mentioned Blueberry Hill: I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill...... the ultimate song line, something like that. Makes me smile. All of his favourite songs make me happy somehow. I can relate to every one...

Re: Oslo (July 1)

It was a most unforgettable concert in Oslo on July 1st, and I feel a deep gratitude to have been there. I was afraid to have too big expectations, like in 1993 when, quite honest, I felt a bit disappointed after the show. This time I was overwhelmed, almost hypnotized. To see Leonard so fit and smi...
