Re: LEONARD COHEN NET WORTH

Plenty of very wealthy people drive older cars and live in modest homes. Trust me I know. It is usually those who want to impress that flash their cash - whether it is newly acquired or inherited. Leonard is deserving of our adulation because of his music but living in a modest home is neither one t...

Leonard Cohen - Lessons from a Master

Earlier this year Sturgess reproduced an article I wrote about the Leonard Cohen Concert experience and the interaction between Leonard and his fans. This was based specifically on his three concerts in Quebec last year as well as my observations at the many concerts I had attended over the last fiv...

Re: Dino Soldo not in the tour band

I attended 26 of the 2008 -10 concerts and have just attended the two Montreal and Quebec concerts - the first of the current incarnation. Like the last post I initially thought something was missing both energywise and musically - it is Leonard's music and Leonard's choice but I thought that whetev...

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011)

As well as an official walking program every two years there is no reason why any Cohenite cannot suggest a get together of like minded souls whenever. If for example Leonard does play Montreaux next nearby July I would be happy to arrange a couple of days challenging day hikes around the nearby mou...

I have no doubts the walking weekend will be considerably enhanced if it is de rigour that there should be a minimum of ...

The Forums own Leonard Cohen 'Book'

Most of you are aware that Marie organised the recent Thank you cards for Leonard and members of the band. There were over 800 signed personaliised messages to Leonard and I think 100 plus to each of the band members. And as a result from time time we have got emails advising us that there were only...

Well actually Albert your wife went out for dinner with a broken vegerarian in Vancouver but I gather no one and Maries dentist (i have to think about that one) was meant to know she was out of ireland. I will be lecturing on planning tour itineraries in Toronto in January and I think Marie's Vancou...

Liam (Anthony) I have not read the book yet but have followed the discussion in this thread - and contributed. It seems to me that your comments (Liam) are very fair and objective and I too thought - Anthony is a fan of Leonard and yet.................only one concert! I certainly do not subscribe t...

Re: Las Vegas, Friday December 10 dinner "casual get together"

Of course it can be argued that a responsible employer should pay their staff a fair wage for a fair days work and not pass on the responsability to the client. In my occupation it would not go down well to book clients on a plane where an overworked pilot was expecting a tip to go from a - b ! I em...

No meet up arranged in Vancouver but 6 of us got together for a bite to eat in downtown Vancouver last night. We were a cosmopolitan group - gypsies of the world like Leonard. Marie from Ireland (She who only has to open her front door to keep bumping into Leonard) , Leslie (Mutti from Seattle but e...

Re: Concert Report: Victoria, B.C. Canada November 30, 2010

I thought last nights concert was interesting on a number of fronts 1 To start with I wondered if the band was a little subdued - and my wife wondered if Leonard was tired - but in retrospect I am now thinking it was that possibly the audience was a little restrained. 2 Biggest applauses for greetin...
