Re: CONCERT REPORT: SEPT 5 - BERLIN, Germany

They should announce a curfew on the ticket, so people can prepare. The concert was absolutly fabulous, but the curfew took me rather by surprise, in a ecstatic mood indeed and suddenly: fullstop .... felt a little like the famous "c..... interruptus". I heard from a friend in Berlin, that the norma...

Re: Who is Patrick Leonard?

Hi together As a Pink Floyd fan, I remembered that Patrick Leonard was the co-author to one of the best songs on the 1987 album "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" and that he also contributed to the Roger Waters album "Amused to Death" in 1992. Until today the last two works that have still some of the o...

Re: Let's Help Make Old Ideas #1 Worldwide!!

Here is another review in the local newspaper, the "Weserkurier" (Bremen). They are very enthusiatic and rate "Old Ideas" as much better than "Dear Heather" and "Ten New Songs". There is another article about Leonard the same day, covering a whole page. http://www.weser-kurier.de/Artikel/News/Kultur...

Re: SONGS AND COVER OF OLD IDEAS

"Banjo" is a very remarkable gospel song. Heavenly sounds indeed. It´s old and new at the same time and the tune reminds me slightly of "Sweet chariot" and the words ... dear people, what can I say. Our humble and beloved Mr. Cohen is heading towards his eighties - in full vigour (may his voice neve...

Re: Let's Help Make Old Ideas #1 Worldwide!!

This one is from the "Frankfurter Rundschau", "the" moderate left wing intellectual paper in Germany, from the 26th of January, and it covers a complete page in the feuillton. As always in recent years, the "FR" praises Leonard. http://www.fr-online.de/kultur/neues-album--old-ideas--leonard-cohen-au...

Re: How Would You Rate Old Ideas?

Hi Folks Always difficult to rate a oustandingly beautiful piece of art in a breathtaking colletion ... In my personal Cohen history I experienced that Leonards songs have a distinctive different appeal to me in my stages of life. The first album I ever heard was "New skin for the old ceremony" and ...

Re: World tour or not 2012

Hi folks I think we have a fair chance, that Leonard and his band will make a tour next year. I would persume, due to his age, that it will not be on such a scale as in the years 2008-2010, but still a considerable number of gigs across the globe. They will make a tour because I never saw people pla...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Hannover, Germany, September 27, 2010

Hello Mary Well, I askeld my friend who was with me at the concert and he said, that he also remembers, hat it was Leonard playing that intro. It may well be, that we both are mistaken. I´d reckon, that for the anniversary some other visitors might look into this thread and will confirm one of us. A...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Hannover, Germany, September 27, 2010

Hi Mary Leonard played that all by himself, only when the actual song started the band came into it. In fact, Leonard played an extended and "spaced-out" version of the intro that you can hear on the "Live in London" album (c.1:40 min.), where Javier plays the archilaud. I am very grateful for the v...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Hannover, Germany, September 27, 2010

Hello folks I had the honour to be at the Hannover concert last year. And the memory still gives me shivers down the spine. After the first song, Leonard said that they would be giving everything that night, and I thought: "I am sure he will give us an excellent concert (I had read the enthusiatic r...
