..but i'm a bigger cohen fan than you!

with all those songs recorded, those lovely books, do i really need to pay silly money to see him in a room full of people shouting "yay, whwoooooo, leonard impregnate me, YAY, play jeff buckley's hallelujah!!!, no, play nick cave's avalanche!!! whooooooo etc etc etc..........."
i think i'll have more fun sat at home with a nice buffet, listening to some youthful Cohen recordings.

in this thread i want some optimistic posts about not having tickets to see LEONARD COHEN.
it doesn't make you less of a fan, nobody really cares whether or not you have seen the great man live, just because you like leonard cohen,it doesn't mean you have to throw all common sense out the window over 75 pound tickets to be in an intimate concert hall (with thousands of people; all looking at LEONARD from a distance where he will be as sincere as the elusive taxman with the impossible task of trying to give everybody eye contact) concert hall.....

by the way....... i am going to see cohen live.

i'm already looking forward to the live DVD (possibly blu-ray) plus extras....

i think i credibility went to pot when i wrote "by the way....... i am going to see cohen live"

it's nice to ponder over not going to see cohen; when you have the luxury of a ticket in one's back pocket.

it's only a few hours of your life, watching a man with his band from afar. (most of that is just waiting)
i thought i was going to get crucified for such a silly topic.

I dunno. I've always found there's something magical about being in the same room as someone whose art moves you profoundly. Live music and recorded music are two different beasts, and I love them both. For a variety of reasons, I get to experience a lot less of the former than the latter, but I have some fantastic memories of performances by my favourite musicians -- Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Beck, Richard Thompson, Keren Ann.... Thankfully, I too have a Cohen ticket in my grubby little hands, and am very much looking forward to the experience :-)

I am going but expect very little. I like only a handful of songs since I'm Your Man and can't really abide the keyboard sound of latter-day Len. I am sure he'll have a great band though, which will bring to life even the latest songs.

The first four albums are simply untouchable but I can't criticise the man for starting his singing career so strongly!

i think "the future" will go down a treat. i fear that during that song he may have a heart attack and die, oh the irony.

various positions is pretty damn good.
