Re: Press Release

Does anyone know why Sharon Robinson isn't a co-writer of this project? I mean, was there any particular reason that her involvement with this album (if there is any) is considerably limited compared to Leonard's last few releases? Speaking of who is involved, does anyone have a list of names for wh...

Re: Six years ago today...

It is hard to believe that it is already six years since the unexpected return of Leonard Cohen to the concert stage -- on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11, 2008. I decided to look up the setlist from that evening's performance, so I wandered over to setlist.fm and found it http://www.setlist.fm/setlis...

Re: Barb Jungr covers Bob and Leonard on the Southbank

Ugh...when her cover of Everybody Knows started, I wanted to strangle her! But, I have to admit, as the accompanying musicians started picking it up I was able to tolerate it. Definitely not my cup of tea, but I'd say overall she did a respectable job covering that tune.

Re: Who is Patrick Leonard?

I, too, first became aware of Patrick Leonard because of his contribution on Pink Floyd's 1987 album A Momentary Lapse of Reason. When he was brought on to Co-Produce Roger Waters' solo album Amused to Death (1992), I knew that he must be good. Roger isn't going to bring anyone but the best into his...

Re: Need to get permission to use Leonard's poems as song ly

Normally, if you'd like to cover an artist's song you'd have to contact the publishing company (after first figuring out who owns the publishing rights ) and request permission. Publishing can be tricky business. I'm sure we would all agree that someone like Leonard Cohen probably wouldn't care abou...

Re: Rare Film Clips Of Leonard Cohen To Be Screened

Normally, I would say that anything that could bring Leonard Cohen's work to new audiences, provide new exposure of his career, would be a wonderful thing. What bothers me about this is Mr. Bill Shelley is profiting from this. It's one thing to be a fan and get a little carried away in your exciteme...

Re: When,Where,And What Was The First LC Song You Heard?

The first time I heard Leonard Cohen was from the movie "Natural Born Killers". The Same for me. From the opening sequence when Waiting For The Miracle started playing, I was practically hypnotised by the voice and words of this then-unknown singer. I was delighted to hear two more tracks from L.C....

Re: Chelsea Hotel NO.1 LYRICS help!

Like you said, Leonard loves to change lyrics during live performances. Here is another video clip of Leonard performing Chelsea Hotel #1 but it is much different than the version you posted. I hope you enjoy it. Leonard drops an F-bomb in this version. You don't hear that too often... :lol: http://...

Hello. Could someone please explain to me what "DIME" is. I saw a couple of posts and I believe it must be a bit torrent site. If it is, how do I go about getting an account on it? What is the URL?

Re: PRESALES TO BOSTON and AUSTIN

Sadly, I did not take part in any pre-concert meetups for the two shows I attended during the last World Tour. If people are planning on doing a meetup before the Boston show, I would be more than happy to take part this time. I will keep my eyes open on the forum.
