Re: YOUR PHOTOS FOR OUR MOSAIC PROJECT

Hello all Here's the pic I sent for the mosaic. It was taken in New York while I was staying at the Chelsea Hotel. A resident there showed me round his apartment which was once Bob Dylan's, but I never got to see Leonard's room. I did get to recite Chelsea Hotel to the Mexican night watchman, who sw...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Hello Actually (great name, btw! nice pic too, but you already know that...), My friend, Simon, was filmed at length by Pennebaker but sadly the footage was edited out in the cutting room. Albert Grossman had gone to a local cafe before the concert to ask a couple of young Dylan fans if they wanted ...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Sassicaia, I'm sorry too; we were a bit censorious and it probably wasn't very pleasant for you. Sorry about that - as Paul says, we're not the Guardians of the Temple, just loving fans who get disgruntled when Leonard's particular qualities seem to be misrepresented. Anyway, glad that's all sorted....

Re: Special Concert in New York

I don't want to sound patronising (though I probably will) ... trace back this forum 2 or 3 years .. you will begin to see, I think, how generous Leonard has been with everything. He is 74 and, believe me (as someone approaching 50!) I suspect his energy levels are not what they used to be ... so t...

Re: Special Concert in New York

I can't understand the few comments on here from people who seem to feel Leonard should be doing MORE for the fans at this concert and in general... he should come to the VIP reception, sign books and CDs to make our trips worthwhile, choose a bigger venue so no-one ever misses out even for a one-of...

Re: Special Concert in New York

PS to my previous post : Margaret, I've just looked at that website you posted : WOW! What a fantastic resource!!! It may be mentioned elsewhere on this mighty website, and many of you may already know it as Margaret did, but just in case, I urge everyone to go take a look at http://pagesperso-orang...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Thank you Margaret, I can't wait to access that site you referenced. This Forum is such a fount of knowledge! As a group, we must surely know more about every aspect of Leonard-appreciation (OK : worship) than he does... As I wrote jokingly on another thread last year, I love imagining an African fi...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Re Loulou's premonition of special things happening; I'm letting my imagination run wild... a chance to meet the band, as happened in Berlin... and/or meeting Lorca and Adam... Anjani... the roadies... Leonard's musician friends (Judy Collins? Nick Cave? John Cale? Jennifer Warnes? Perla Batalla? Ru...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Hello Anne I'm so sorry to have caused you offence! Nothing in my post suggested that Leonard Cohen is not Canadian, and I'm sorry for the slip up about 'starting his tour in Europe'. We know the tour started in Canada (I've read and enjoyed every concert report on this Forum) - mea culpa! I meant t...

Re: Special Concert in New York

One of my favourite memories from the Fall Tour was the moment, in Birmingham, when Leonard replied to the crowd's 'We Love You!' shouts by saying, with a huge smile, 'I'm very fond of you too - as time passes, I get fonder and fonder...' This concert feels very much like a gift, from Leonard to his...

Re: Special Concert in New York

Jarkko, If you're still alive, and have finished chatting to Henning, and are as happy as a man with the power to Bring Good Tidings can be - could you please merge this thread with the other one about the Announcement? It's the most delightful thread ever, but it's exhausting having to log onto bot...

Re: A Very Special Announcement Coming

How lovely - photos by Lorca, meeting fans, being in New York, Leonard having chose to do this for the fans. Wish I wasn't working that weekend, and wish it wasn't Credit Crunch year - otherwise I would have taken my good friend who's never seen New York, for a weekend of delights... Aaaargh. Just t...

Re: A Very Special Announcement Coming

Just one question is troubling me in my old age... could someone please explain : if this is going to be a 'concert for the fans' - what other type of concert is there??

Re: A Very Special Announcement Coming

OK, so it's not a new tour it's a concert, and it's clearly not in Europe. Was worth a dream. Now I'm just wondering : is it possible, just maybe, that Jarkko saying he will make the announcement on 'New York time' is, rather than a clue, in fact a Machiavellian red herring, to throw us off the scen...

Re: A Very Special Announcement Coming

I've read this entire thread in one go, it's now 2.45am in London, so my mind is a bit like pea soup, but it seems to me the only possibility is a new European tour after the US/Pacific.
I don't want a prize, I just want to be right...
