Re: Season's Greetings 2016

Jarkko, I love Eija's ice crystal photo! And great minds think alike! I had already composed this below to post! I hope you don't mind but I think it's a good thing to reprise. These words below are almost identical to the very last blessing in the very last concert in Auckland 2013. seeyoudownthero...

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

Does anyone know wether these verses form part of the original lyrics? Did Leonard Cohen wrote them? Yes, they do and he did but there are a few wrong words written above. In fact, Leonard wrote at least 60 verses including these and he said there actually exists about three or four versions of Dem...

Re: Designs for Songs & Versions

It is with a heavy heart but a compelling need that I continue my book which now is more important than ever to me to finish. It’s so bitter/sweet to listen to those concerts given the present circumstances and I know it’s the same for all of us. Unfortunately, the book covers don’t need to be alter...

Re: eyes are soft with sorrow

Geoffrey, that’s why I felt compelled to comment – I can feel your expression of sadness and gratitude. About him helping you out, it doesn’t surprise me, Leonard is (I don’t like saying was) more than generous, he’s a munificent spirit! http://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20807...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Big Chill (August 3)

So happy that we had the honour of being in that crowd. There will never be another Leonard Cohen. Ah Diane, that would have been such a treat then to be there at the beginning of the tour of all tours! Yes, there wasn't anyone like Leonard before and there certainly won't be anyone like him after!...
