Re: Rob Hallett exits AEG Live

Oh for God's sake! No matter what his intentions were and I do believe they were primarily financial this proposition resulted in a win win for everyone.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

What about looking into the possibility of having a special Canadian coin minted to celebrate Leonard as one of Canada's most important artists.

Re: any Cohen song you DONT like!?!?

The Butcher. I just can't listen to it. If it comes on my iPod I move on to the next song as soon as possible.

Re: Lucca festival, Dylan??

I loved it! I thought Dylan's delivery was wonderful. It is true that that the once innovative and vital Detroit is suffering. But the American auto industry has been revived and seems to be putting out good quality cars now. And if Dylan helps sells more cars I see nothing wrong with that.

Re: 92nd Y releases recordings

Thanks for posting this Scot, I really enjoyed it. You Have the Lovers is one of my favorite
Poems of Leonard's. The imagery of it is wonderful and it was nice to hear him read it.

Re: BEST COVER VERSIONS OF A LEONARD COHEN SONG OF ALL TIME

You're right Mary about the shoot someone line. I noticed that too. I was surprised because this has become somewhat of a trademark song for her. Another line I found song differently was "I've walked this room, I've walked this floor". It should have been "I know this room, I've walked this floor"....

Re: Lou Reed dead

Thanks for posting this Linda. I enjoyed what Casey had to say. I also had no idea that all those backing singers sang was the Do Do Do Do. The song would definitely had not been as powerful without them.

Re: Lou Reed dead

I will never forget the first time I heard Take a Walk on the Wild Side in 1972. I had never heard anything so honest, gritty and hauntingly beautiful as that song. "And the colored girls went Do Do Do Do, Do Do Do Do Do"
Lou Reed was one of a kind.

Re: Isle of Wight 1970 photo of Leonard

Actually I have read in more places than one that Leonard had taken Mandrax before he went onstage at the Isle of Wight. I don't think I would have just made that up.

Re: Is It Just Me....

Kurt, I think in Gotthenberg 2010 he played 33 songs. But that being said if that was the case I am not sure he hasn't done more somewhere else.
