'Musician' interview

Can anyone link me to the full interview that Leonard gave to 'Musician' magazine in July 1988? The article was written by Mark Rowland and was titled "Leonard Cohen's Nervous Breakthrough". It used to be on the speakingcohen site but I'm getting a dead link now. Many thanks.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Last night I watched the Bird on a Wire documentary for the first time ever, and fell in love with Leonard's music all over again. This morning I woke up to the news of his passing. I am devastated. Here are some words I wrote a few years ago on how much Leonard meant to me: https://viennesewaltz.ne...

Re: HOP FARM (UK), 8 SEPT ON GENERAL SALE

Remember that if Leonard is the High Priest of the Cohens then forum members are the true Cohenites and we must yield to his calling us to his concerts in a proper and spirited manner. Blimey Clive, I'm really not sure if you're being ironic here. Where do you get this idea of forum members being "...

Re: New bootleg live CD: 'Back In The Motherland'

Maybe you should check your facts before posting? I'm not talking about the American Record Store Day, I'm talking about the British and European Record Store Days, both of which list Back In The Motherland on vinyl: http://www.recordstoreday.co.uk/exclusive-product.aspx http://www.recordstoredayger...

This is coming out on vinyl for Record Store Day in a limited edition of 500 copies. Not sure if it's an official release or not.

Re: Big Announcement today at 7:30 am EDT!

Thank you so much, Jarkko. I love the image of you racing to a gas station to post an announcement we're all sitting waiting for. What a day!! Except of course that Jarkko wasn't the first one to make the announcement – another forum member found the press release online and posted it first. Not to...

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

Could someone (maybe Jarkko?) please clarify if Leonard will recieve song-writing royalties from the sales of Alexandra'a "Hallelujah"? This page suggests that he will: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/xfactor/a138444/cohen-to-receive-gbp1m-for-x-factor-song.html But I wouldn't trust it, necessarily. Th...

Fall 2008 recordings on Dime – sound quality?

So there are now several audience recordings of the Fall tour on Dime but I was wondering if anyone had any views on which are the best as regards sound quality?

Re: Brighton - all my bags are packed and I'm ready to go

Brighton used to be my home town and I wish I was there now to see this concert. However the Brighton Centre is a horrible soulless barn. A shame it's not the Dome where Field Commander Cohen was recorded (and also parts of the I'm Your Man soundtrack). I second the recommendation to watch the sun s...

Re: O2 Arena London Thursday 13 November 2008 - A Great 3 Hours

At the end of the song (importantly at the end and not during) the moment was left hanging in the air - that would be the time for audience participation. Oh dear me no. If the moment is left hanging in the air at the end of such a perfect and magical song, that is a time for quiet contemplation of...
