Re: CONCERT REPORT: LONDON, JUNE 21, 02 ARENA

What a joy to experience Leonard and his musicians fire up our spirits in the corporate soullessness of the O2 last night and great to see lots of young people there; his master classes shouldn't be missed by anyone of any age! It was such a buzz to hear Amen and The Darkness as well as a thrilling,...

Leonard on Jarvis Cocker BBC Radio6, 29 Jan&Feb 15.

Just heard a brief extract of Jarvis Cocker talking to Leonard about Old Ideas on BBC Radio 4 Today (19 Jan.) programme; what a good way to start a day. Nearly fell into my porridge bowl! Apparently there's more on the upcoming Jarvis show on Sunday Jan 29th BBC Radio 6 DAB (16:00-18:00 U.K. time). ...

Re: k.d's band member's Leonard Cohen moment

Speaking of k.d.lang....I am still recovering from being taken apart and moved to another place by her astounding, heartbreakingly beautiful rendition of Hallelujah at her London concert last night. Funny, because until then I'd never really connected to this one song amongst all my Leonard touchsto...

Re: Isle of Wight release - all details

Wow. If ALL the tour concerts have been recorded, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could 'relive the moments' at local meetups where the footage is shown again for forum members? Maybe we could pay a small fee/donation for charity to view again? How feasible is that? I've no idea of the copyright and ...
