Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

No one has ever moved me as much as Leonard. I am devastated, if not surprised. I was luckily enough to meet him in Lille in 2010, with my then 9 year old daughter. He was unfailingly cal, dignified and generous of spirit. His lyrics said more to me about the human condition, as ineptly experienced ...

Re: Hattie Webb E.P. Launch at King's Place (2nd Sept. 2016)

It was great to finally meet you, John, and I entirely echo your review, which captures the evening perfectly. I thought it was a superb performance by Hattie - she is a force of nature. Her band were very good too, and I was particularly struck by the performance of Pedro Segundo, who was excellent...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Leonard played Night Comes on at Wembley on Saturday 8 September 2012. Sharon may not remember it, but it was utterly unforgetable for me!

Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

Wishing you a very happy and restful 80th birthday, Leonard. Your music consistently provides joy, humour, consolation and illumination. Your live shows are perfection. If there are more (and, selfishly, I hope there will be), I'll definitely be in the audience!

Re: Rolling Stone Article/Interview

"I'll have another shot or two at it when I go on the road – if I go on the road," he said. "The road is beckoning. I know if I run that song down in concert two-or-three-hundred times, I'm going to get it." It may not be a firm commitment, but it's a stronger indication of an intention to tour than...

Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

I'm delighted to have the chance to contribute to this wonderful project! Cash sent last week. Will visit Hydra one day to see the results. Renewed thanks to Jarkko.

Re: Upcoming Leonard Cohen Live DVD

Thanks Jarkko. I for one am prepared to wait as long as it takes. Having attended the "Live in London" show, I was so excited that I bought 2 copies of the DVD, just in case one got scratched. The "reserve" copy is still in its wrapping. I think it was this that sugggested to family members that I m...
