Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Dear Leonard, I read somewhere that you rendered imperfections beautiful. It captures something but not all of it. All of it is beyond capture in the words of mere mortal souls. Thank you for your graciousness, humility, and humour in the face of all of your magnificent achievements. Above all, I gi...

Sun Hotel/Chelsea Hotel - The Menzingers

Although the electric version bears less of the traces to the original, this acoustic version by Greg Barnett of The Menzingers is just amazing imho!

Re: CONCERT REPORT: London, UK , September 15, 2013

Thanks for this, John. I think on Dr Heck of Guy's site there is Joey's guide to reading the setlists. What you describe here suggests that we would have heard Night Comes On and, of course, the last two encores were it not for the curfew. We might also -- if the stars were aligned correctly :-) -- ...

Re: London 15.9.13

It was the earliest finish of any LC concert I have ever been to, a full 30 mins earlier than all the other UK concerts. I was told that the 10:45 pm curfew was because the tubes finish early on a Sunday and they need 3 to get the full crowd away from the venue. I have no idea how accurate that is ...
