Re: URGENT: LONDON AND LEEDS RE-SCHEDULED

Sorry Caren and Gingermop but I think you are missing the point. Fine if LC is sensitive to performing on certain dates for religious reasons but surely he has the responsibility to inform the management of this in advance so as to avoid what has just happened. It's simple. Leonard probably DID men...

Re: URGENT: LONDON AND LEEDS RE-SCHEDULED

I don’t often read/comment here but came on to see what the new Leeds date was and I’m surprised at the angry responses. As someone who works in media I know that it’s the management company and not the artist who arranges the logistics of the tour. The artist is generally not involved in the decisi...

Leonard in 2013 Guinness Book of Records

Hello all A news piece just came to my attention that I thought I’d share: Leonard will be in the 2013 edition of the Guinness Book of Records. The record refers to him having the longest gap between top 10 UK albums. ‘Old Ideas’ peaked at number 2 in the chart recently, 40 years and eight months af...

It's not the same no matter how you spin it. I have to think about this for a while. I really appreciate your words Gina, thanks for sharing what Mr. Cohen is thinking. It helps us to try to understand this decison. Hello Box of Rain, I can understand your feelings, but I think this works because n...

Re: About LC not singing, If It Be Your Will...

I don't normally get involved in discussions like this, but this one has gone on for a while and begs to be clarified in order to give the Webb Sisters and Leonard their due as to this particular arrangement. Perhaps you will be touched, as I was, when I heard the reasoning behind this. From a relia...

Re: The tour merchandise and collectibles; online shop soon

I’d also like to point out that there are many fake Leonard signatures/autographs appearing on Ebay recently. Some of them are blatantly not genuine, but I’m afraid people are falling for it (they are attracting bidders all the time, unsurprisingly). I’m not sure what can be done about this, short o...

Re: A derivative cover of Hallelujah

Mabeanie1, I believe the royalties of Hallelujah, performed by others than Leonard, go to the owner of the rights, and unfortunately it's not Leonard. I think -- I'm not a lawyer so this is just speculation - one would need ALSO Leonard's permission if the lyrics are changed, re-written, or new sta...

Re: Campaign: Get Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in the UK charts!

New campaign: Keep Leonard free from the Top Twenty...it hasn't meant anything since the late 60s/early 70s. Let Leonard be acknowledged for his greatness instead of having to resort to hype. Don't make it harder for yourself, if he does more live concerts. That's all I've got to say! John E Not me...

Re: Campaign: Get Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in the UK charts!

Just watched a long item about the song on the Channel 4 news, which had clips of Leonard from Songs from the Key of Life and reading poetry, plus clips of Jeff Buckley and Alexandra and interviews with a 94-year old fan who'd been at the RAH show, a radio DJ and a pundit who illustrated the minor ...

Re: Hallelujah on UK X-Factor (all threads merged here)

Dear all I would also like to see Leonard’s own version of Hallelujah go up the charts, if only for the novelty of seeing him have a top 40 hit. There are two places you can download his version from, where it counts towards the official UK chart. These are: Play.com (65p) : http://www.play.com/Musi...
