Re: New tribute album by Marcin Styczeń (Poland)

Let me start with a few positive words. Marcin Styczen has a nice, cohenesque voice, and his singing is really good. But... as everybody knows - we have to go deeper, because in case of Leonard the words matter the most. I agree with Apolinary and martali - these translations are not really translat...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

O Leonard! My Leonard! We wanted it darker - but not this dark, dear Friend and Master. Thank you for being a part of my life for over 40 years. Thank you for your poetry, drawings, songs, concerts. Thank you for those books with personal inscriptions that you've sent me, and for the lithograph. The...

Re: Sadly, Judith Fitzgerald Has Passed Away

Sad, very sad news... RIP Judith - BoHo [*] Over the years we have exchanged numerous e-mails discussing everything - from alchemy and chemistry in Leonard's poetry to very private issues. I admired her knowledge of literature, history, and her fantastic language creativity. There were also several ...

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

Hello, sometimes I think it would be nice to have a thread titled the 'Muse of the Laboratory' because Leonard's lyrics include these brief but absolutely fundamental truths about reality, about what we are and how we fit into this universe. It might be appropriate. If you look closely at the poste...

I keep my fingers crossed, Laura!
As for myself - thinking about the gap between 2 Sep (Helsinki) and 5 Sep (Berlin). Poland is just in between.

Re: Join Us Next Monday March 26 - new timing

Hey, people - don't forget that Leonard is a singer. Those letters are obviously first notes of first five songs. Now you have to try to guess what songs start with those notes. But if those letters stand for cities, then I am absolutely certain that E stands for E spoo (*) A - A nother concert in E...

Cohen - yea, I know the guy, but... could someone enlighten me who the heck is the other one - I mean that Shakespeare? Leonard's new session musician?
