Hi Lizzy and Tom. Thank you for your input. Yes, Leonard is generally very good when in front of those circling cameras, and that is appreciated. I just wanted to reiterate their importance and power, and give an opinion as a viewer. When he was doing a concert in Norway he secretly glued a piece of...

'Everybody Knows' by Madrugada

One of Norway's top bands, the currently touring Madrugada, is including Leonard's 'Everybody Knows' in their song-list. On Thursday (23rd March 2006) they played to a packed audience at Bergen's Grieghallen. There is a review (in Norwegian, I'm afraid) and some photographs here: http://pub.tv2.no/n...

Du må prøve å få med deg 'Fredag' programmet som er sendt i reprise nå på mandag - eller gå til 'God morgen, norge!' hjemmesiden og se på web-tv innslagget.

He doesn't 'ruin' it, but sings it a lot higher, almost falsetto, than what we are used to hearing. Viva la differ...
