3 Hallelujahs in the UK charts

Following on from the success of a totally inappropriate cover version of "Hallelujah" that won a UK TV talent show, great efforts were made by fans of Jeff Buckley to promote his version. They ended up Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, in the UK Christmas singles chart. Wait a minute, I hear you say, wha...

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

Amazing! This is just like reading a website devoted to fans of my football team. As I live in Vienna now I don't see their matches live, so find most information from fans reports and comments. Like the reviews of Leonard's 24 September concert in Vienna, it is as if some of them have attended a di...

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

From the moment that Leonard skipped onto the stage, making light of his 74 years, he had the audience in Vienna's Konzerthaus entranced. I have attended many concerts but never in my previous experience have an audience provided a standing ovation for an artist BEFORE he had even opened the show. T...

Re: Leonard Cohen and our wedding

It was "just a perfect day", but lets cut to the bit you have been waiting for! Everything was going according to plan. There had been a short demonstration of how to waltz provided by Hannes, my best man and an excellent dancer. Then it was time for my lovely bride Lucy and I to open the dancing to...

Re: Leonard Cohen and our wedding

Hallelujah! Just discovered that Leonard IS playing Vienna (Sept 24). So now have tickets plus my own smiley face. Thanks, Lizzy, for encouraging me to keep checking the tour list. Surely he will perform "Take this waltz". Can't wait. It is a long time since his excellent concert in Manchester in th...

Leonard Cohen and our wedding

Lucy and I are getting married on 08/08/08 in a palais in Vienna, where we both now live. I have been a fan of Leonard's music since first hearing it on John Peel's "Top Gear" show on BBC radio in the 60's. Lucy is now a big fan too, having once read through all his lyrics while I was away on a busi...
