We remember him well from one of our Hydra meetups.Nefelly Samios
Russell Harvey from Lewes, Sussex, long time fan of Leonard Cohen, sadly passed away yesterday. Russell never posted or kept up with this page but incase anybody recognises his name, I thought I would post . Russell attended official meet-ups in Barcelona and Ydra and thoroughly enjoyed the experiences. He went to the 02 in June and also to Brighton on that gloriously warm and sunny day where we met up with Jan Vail, Chrissie and Kevin and their friendly group and even that lovely day he had no idea he was ill. Leonard's music and poetry was a huge source of inspiration to Russell from Leonard's first album and during his final days, he once again enjoyed hearing his three beloved daughters singing along with Leonard to many of the much loved songs ..... He was such a character - had just started a Degree in Philosophy at Brighton Uni. Those of us who knew him will much miss him. RIP Russell.
Here is a picture of him on his way to the monastery.
