Re: Leonard as a father - one of several featured in a new book 'My Old Man'

"You want to know some secrets about Leonard Cohen? Here’s the dirt. He loves George Jones and Hank Williams. He travels with one small suitcase. Many of his impeccable suits are actually threadbare. He’s only about 5ft 8in, despite that giant baritone. He awakens at four in the morning and blackens...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

I was just metres from Leonard, in the front row in Auckland, 21 December 2013, and as he finally skipped off stage I just knew in my heart that this was truly the last time. That's exactly how I felt Clementine. (I must have been sat very close to you in the centre front.) Wendy I was at the Chris...

Re: Programme of the Events in Dublin

The concert was filmed and recorded in full HD quality for the venue screens and Leonard's own archives. This footage will not be released. It will probably be one of the last concerts in 2013 in New Zealand. Aarrrgghh! Knowing my luck it'll be the one I was at (Christchurch). What I'd give for a c...

The power of the internet! Must remember to lay in some beers, just in case people turn up.

Re: Companion wanted in Christchurch

Hi Oyane, I am attending the concert with my wife and a friend, leaving from our house in Spreydon, which is an easy walk from the venue. If you would like to meet at our house (you can park your car at our property), then text me (my name is Warren) on 021 408 680 and we can set something up.

Re: Christchurch meet up

I'm still here, Avi. Just reading lately, not posting so much. I'm attending the concert with a couple of people and we're leaving from my house, which is within walking distance of the venue. Perhaps Steve would like to meet up here with a few beers then walk down? We have plenty of off-street park...

Your material circumstances are immaterial, Geoffrey. You are clearly rich beyond measure in so many other ways. ;-)

Re: Two Outstanding Tributes Paid to JARKKO ARJATSALO

I'm a little late seeing this thread, but I wish to add to the chorus of voices praising Jarkko and his efforts. Like most of us, I have never met Jarkko (although I have communicated with him every now and then via email), but without his efforts on behalf of Leonard, my life would be so much the p...

Re: CONCERT REPORT:Christchurch, NZ, Westpac Arena, Nov. 3, 2010

This is a nice picture of Christchurch - although taken quite a few years ago – http://www.peopleandplaces.us/newzealand/zea93.jpg That's actually the city's port of Lyttleton, quite separate from the city itself thanks to a dramatic range of volcanic hills in between the two. The city looks more l...

Excellent article, well written. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I like the rare shot of Leonard in a t-shirt, too.

Hallelujah indeed! NZ is waiting! I hope Leonard & co. come to Christchurch this time: the likeliest venue is just a 10 minute walk from my house. They can all stop by afterwards for milk and cookies.

Re: Wellington, January 20

From Sam Hunt: After his set opening for Cohen at the Wellington show, he was momentarily blinded by the lights and fumbling to find the rail leading down from the stage. "A hand appeared to guide me down the steps - and, so, you know, I reached out and grabbed it. I didn't even know who it was, but...
