Re: Happy New Year

Thanks for the lovely picture, Jarkko. Happy New Year to you and Eija, and to all Cohenites wherever they may be but most especially to the members here, who make this such a rewarding place to be.

Re: Liverpool Meetup January 8-10, 2010

Hi Dave, You have managed to pick the one weekend for which we currently have a definite commitment for the whole of next year! One of our friends and his mum are celebrating their combined 130th birthday that weekend (his 50th, her 80th), so we will be hitting the high spots of Nottingham. All the ...

Re: The Tour 2010 Dates (so far)

Do we know whether there is any chance of a new set list? Or is this just designed to reach the parts other tours have failed to reach?

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

I listened to the CD last night, and really enjoyed hearing the old tunes, like Lady Midnight, that for some reason have not made it to 'classic' status and no longer figure in the live show. Something had to give, I guess, or the shows would be about six hours long by now :). I liked that the intro...

Here are some from John's camera. He hasn't captioned them, but those who were there will know.

And a few on the train. I have no idea who the handsome young man sitting next to Judith was. He looked a lot like Pete, but apparently Pete walked up :)

Well, that seems to have worked, though for some reason it has loaded them in reverse order, so here are a couple more.

Re: Just when I climbed this whole mountainside... (Wales 2009)

I have loved seeing everyone else's photos, but have not been able to upload mine as I couldn't work out how to reduce them. (My computer and I have a love/hate relationship at the best of times.) I had to wait for John to get back from his week in Sweden so he could show me how to do it. I think I ...

Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

Happy birthday, Leonard. When I first discovered your music, aged 17, I was horrified to discover that you were more than twice my age. How could such an old man make songs that spoke directly to my heart? Now that I am much older than you were then, I realise that the heart has no age, and your son...

Re: Just when I climbed this whole mountainside... (Wales 2009)

I know it has been said before, but I don't think it can be said enough, thank you to Diane and Tim for organising this wonderful weekend for us. And thanks to everyone who was there for great company and entertainment. Thanks too to John Byron and to Pete for providing a bumper for me to follow on ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Weybridge, July 11

Has anyone else found their attitude to rain has changed since Weybridge? I have always hated getting wet, so arrived at Weybridge with waterproof coverings from head to foot, but found I couldn't wear my gloves because it meant I couldn't clap properly. It didn't bother me much, especially as the e...

Re: Leonard's response to the boycott

I am so glad that such a thoughtful and imaginative solution has been found to this problem. Proof once again (as if we needed it) that Leonard Cohen is a very special person indeed.
