Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

I can't help feeling that a tribute and celebration like this should have been held today - the anniversary of his birth - the day it all started, rather than around the anniversary of the very sad day we lost him. My personal reaction to any anniversary of loss is quiet remembrance, but I respect t...

Re: Art Garfunkel

Saw Art Garfunkel in Oxford on Saturday. Really enjoyed it, although the voice seemed a bit uncomfortable at times. But considering what he's been through, all credit to him for the strength and discipline it must have taken to get back to this level of performance. And the voice of Garfunkel Jnr - ...

Re: Songs from a Room

AlexandraLaughing, have you seen this film about LC's early work with Ira Nadel and Jim Devlin, amongst others? Interesting information/analysis of the early work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCbekHrQNYU I only discovered it recently and haven't found anything about it on the forum here (althoug...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

If there's a problem with Hydra, let's think about Montreal - not in the vicinity of LC's house, but somewhere near that "place by the river" perhaps?

Re: Arthur Smith sings Leonard Cohen

From the BBC - doesn't say when it's due to be broadcast though. Love the idea of nudity in a radio show... Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen Again Arthur Smith Sings Leonard Cohen was a hit at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival some years ago. The show ran in London's West End before a final outing in Mont...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LUCCA (JULY 9, 2013) PIAZZA NAPOLEONE

Big thank you to everyone who's posted sound check videos. There are so many (very good) videos of the concerts themselves, but they all look the same, with Leonard and the band in 'performance' mode, so it's refreshing to see these videos. I know it's not usually possible to see (as well as hear) t...

Re: PRESALE TO THE UK SHOWS

So pleased about all the UK dates - but I can't believe it - I'm going to be away for all but the O2 concert :( However ... there's a bit of a gap between 8th and 14th. Jarkko - are there likely to be any more UK concerts, or is the list complete?

Re: Sylvie Simmons Reading and Q & A in London

Thanks so much for pointing this up, John. I shall be there. I'm currently reading the book on a Kindle (good for on the train), but deeply frustrating as when I picked it up last night the battery was completely flat. So, happy to buy the book!

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

I don't think Birmingham should be lightly dismissed - after all, an important and attractive place in our literary heritage is not a million miles away - Stratford-upon-Avon. Can't guarantee the weather of course, but a visit to the theatre to see a performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company woul...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Paris September 28, 29, 30, 2012

Sitting here at work on a gloomy drizzly day, that wonderful Sunday in Paris seems almost unreal. Not a cloud in the sky all day and then a dream of a concert in the evening. And what a perfect venue - warm and intimate - how LC's music should be experienced. No walking around, talking etc. during t...

Re: PARIS meet up?

Tried to PM you earlier, Christelle, as I wanted to let you know asap, but it's still sitting in the outbox - don't know why it hasn't gone. There's been a change of plan for this weekend, and it doesn't look as if we'll make the brunch. I'm really sorry about this - do hope it won't cause any probl...

Lizzie - if you drag the file onto the desktop and open it from there, it should be fine.
My thanks, too, Christelle.
