Re: The Darker album: Interviews and reviews in the media

A review of You Want it Darker on 'The Quietus' by Ben Hewitt Kris Kristofferson once told Leonard Cohen that he wanted to steal the opening lines from ‘Bird On A Wire’ to be inscribed on his tombstone. The surprising thing is that he was actually able to choose at all: “Like a bird on a wire/ Like ...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I am also thankful that we were alive at the same time as him and so some of us were lucky enough to see him play in concert, which is such a blessing. June 20th 2008 in Manchester Opera House was the best night of my life http://www.cbc.ca/radio/q/schedule-for-friday-november-11-2016-1.3845596 You...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

This morning at 1am I listened to Leonard Cohen's 'Tower of Song' a programme first broadcast on Radio 1 in 1994, where Leonard spoke about his songs and songwriting, with contributions from Jennifer Warnes and Susan Vega, It was so enlightening and it was wonderful to hear his take on his music. If...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Such sad news. Leonard will always be remembered for his music and poetry which brought so many people such pleasure. I was playing Songs from the Road on random play, repeating constantly last night, such a beautiful CD, which always reminds me of the wonderful times I was lucky enough to see Leona...

Re: Leonard on BBC6 Music

Alan_1, thank you for the link. It looks interesting; curious when the interview was taken, hopefully recently. I've thought that the broadcasting was today, on Leonard's birthday but I've learned that we will have to wait until next Sunday. So: BBC 6, Sunday 28th September, 14:00 CEST (13:00 BST) ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LONDON, JUNE 21, 02 ARENA

A great concert but for me spoilt not by the people getting up to go for a drink/comfort break but by some people arriving after the concert had started, some up to an hour afterwards. Why bother? My favourite part was Leonard's spoken rendition of a Thousand Kisses Deep, which is so magical. Also S...

Re: CONCERT IN LONDON (June 21, 2013) ON SALE

Did anyone get his tickets already? They charged my credit card but so far I didn't get a mail that the tickets will be sent (only a confirmation that I bought them). I've never bought tickets in the UK, how long does it usually takes? I'm used to eventim where they arrive within 24 hours. ;-) I do...

Re: CONCERT IN LONDON (June 21, 2013) ON SALE

Thanks for the links sebmelmoth, it makes very interesting reading. In my opinion it should be made illegal to sell tickets over the ticket face value but it's never going to happen. You only have to look at eBay now to find loads of tickets for sale at inflated prices: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.h...

Jarvis Cocker speaks to Leonard Cohen

I can't see this anywhere but apologies if it's been posted before!

Jarvis Cocker speaks to Leonard Cohen about songwriting, loves and life, ahead of the release of "old Ideas" (presumably UK release?) on Sunday 29 January at 16:00 GMT on BBC 6 Music for 2 hours, it should be good! :D

Re: Whats your favourite Leonard Cohen's song?

It is impossible to come up with a favourite song, they all are, except, Jazz Police, I alway,s have to skip that one. Denise I agree it is the one Leonard Cohen song that I'm not particularly fond of. I wasn't particularly keen on Dear Heather either when I first heard it but it has grown on me si...

Re: "Leonard Cohen Live in London" - DVD & 2CD - April 2009

Well I bought both the DVD and Cds from Amazon for £22-56 and I think this is excellent value and will always be a reminder of the great concert that Leonard gave at the O2. I was in the back of the second tier there so the DVD gives me an insight into what was happening on the stage and I feel it c...
