Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Dear Mr Cohen, when I heard the sad news on Friday I didn´t know where to find comfort because for more than 40 years it has always been your words, your voice, your music, your songs that helped me through times of sorrow. But in these days it is too painful to listen to your unique voice. I knew t...

Re: Francis Mus: The Demons of L.C. (new book)

Thank you, Jarkko, for the information. This sounds really interesting.
So, is there any hope for an English translation of the book?

Greetings,

Re: New book: Leonard Cohen - Almost Young

Hi Jarkko,
the front and the back of the German and the English editions are absolutely identical:
the beautiful black and white photo on the front, the photo from the last concerts on the back.
On amazon.de they show it the other way round, but fortunately that´s wrong.
Greetings

Re: New audio CD: early poetry readings

It sounds like a new edition of "Six Montreal Poets. Smith/Cohen/Layton/Scott/Dudek/Klein"
published in 2001 by Folkways Records. There are also 43 poems on this cd that were recorded in 1957.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

Dick, I totally agree with you: a bench in a puristic style that goes well with Greece and Mr Cohen.
And just "Came so Far for Beauty - Leonard Cohen", nothing about the Forum or
the 80th birthday.

Re: Sylvie's book in Italian and Hebrew

Hi MaryB and Roman, the German translation of Sylvie's book is very good. Some of the examples Mark Twain mentioned are obsolete. Today "monster words" are used mainly in administrative language. By the way "Unabhaengigkeitserklaerung" means "declaration of independence" and that's not much shorter ...

Re: Sylvie's book in Italian and Hebrew

Hi Goldin, I don't know about the Dutch book, but I have the German and the American editions. The size of the German book is smaller than the American book. In addition to that the letter in the German book is larger. Along with the fact that German translations are always a little longer than the ...

Re: Dino Soldo not in the tour band

Hi Songwriter, in the French film "Mount Baldy. Spring 96" by Armelle Brusq you can watch LC working on his old Mac in his cabin on Mt Baldy. In one of the older biographies ( I think it was Ira Nadel's) LC told that Apple had given Macs to Canadian writers and had sent instructors to show the write...

Re: PRESALE NOW TO 4 CONCERTS IN GERMANY

Thank you so much, Klaus, for your hint. I had tried to get good tickets for Mannheim but it was not possible. Even this morning from 9 to 9.30am there was not a single ticket in blocks 101 to 103. Now I got two tickets in 101 row 5. This so-called fan-presale was de facto a public sale. Everybody c...

Re: leonard + adam on HR1 Radio germany

Thank you, Ute, for posting this, otherwise I would have missed it.
From 8-9pm there were live recordings from Adam's concert in Munich in November 2011,
then from 9-10pm they played Leonard's "Songs from the Road".
