Re: CHANGE IN THE ANNOUNCEMENT PLANS

Jarkko, you seemed to earlier totally rule out a Krakow-event related appearance, but Arlene/Bridger and I (and no doubt others planning to go to Krakow) clearly still are holding out some hopes in that regard--can you comment at all?

Re: how about a Krakow concert in August?

Well, I have heard it said that lately things have been a bit quiet on the forum, so I've been glad to help out! :D :razz: :lol: The idea of Leonard just with a guitar and his voice coming to especially sing for us Krakow crazies (tho not only for us) certainly would be a wonderful gesture and might...

how about a Krakow concert in August?

It now appears LC will be in northern Europe in August. Krakow ain't far from Scandinavia and the Baltics, and he would have a guaranteed passel of fans for a Krakow concert during the "event"? Perhaps others have suggested this already; in any case surely the folks around LC must know about the Kra...

Re: Caen - who is going?

yes, i suppose if i can get to the Zenith without taking the light rail through southeast L.A. or the tenderloin district of San Fran you're right!

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

A front-page story in today's N.Y.Times makes clear that on my way from the L.A. Amtrak station to Long Beach to hear the Webbs (see my first concert report, above) I managed to (completely unknowingly) route myself through the heart of L.A. gangland, so notorious for such that "gangland tours" are ...

The Maestro says it's Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
when you're waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come."

i'd say somewhere between Mozart & junk,, definitely not a miracle.

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

I didn't go looking for this, but here's a review from the ORange County Register which shares my non-enthusastic view of the 'Webbs' performance: In rehearsal with Rufus Wainwright at the Terrace January 10th, 2010, BEN WENER, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER When last I saw Rufus Wainwright, the gifted ...

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

sorry--one last point. tho i didn't know how to characterize webbs' songs (and couldn't understand lyrics on first hearings), rock would probably not be on the list of possibilities. if u want to c rock, go to a "boss" concert w/bruce. certainly no relationship whatever been what the webbs did and w...

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

again, i'm glad at least some others enjoyed the concert than i. perhaps another issue was seating. from where i sat in the balcony, you couldn't see faces (and, unlike Cohen concerts in large venues there were no videos). and the sound, tho tolerable for songs, was so poor you could barely make abo...

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

i have no idea what this means; i posted only on leonardcohenforum.com

Do you not think (like we all sometimes have) that you just had a bad day, and this has reflected in such a negative review that you have printed on the forum of both The Webb Sisters and Rufus.

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

i glad the previous post-er enjoyed the show. everybody has their own experience and i'm glad yours was better than mine. until the end of their set the applause for them was barely more than polite. the folks next to me had no idea who they were and were pissed off as they were expecting rufus. i l...

Re: Webb Sisters - Los Angeles/San Francisco shows in Jan 2010

well.......i'll make it short, tho not too sweet. in sum, not a very memorable concert. they sang for only about 30 minutes as an opening act for rufus wainwright. seemed to have a rocky start, tho it certainly got better, especially their final song, "a thousand stars." they did "if it be your will...
