Tom Jones (again)

Mark and I went to see Tom Jones at Austin City Limits recently, and he opened with "Tower of Song". It was actually pretty good.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I am also for "Came so far for beauty". It all seems to be coming together nicely. Mark and I will be happy to contribute of course, and hopefully to sit on said bench one day!

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

So far I like the bench, and planting a tree.

Re: The Wordless LC Songbook - hand printed by George Walker

$880 or $1,880 - doesn't make a lot of difference to me. If I wanted (and could) spend that sort of money, I would be looking to buy one of Leonard's lithos. Like Lizzy I think I'll wait for the "everyman's" edition. Wendy But we don't blink an eye at spending that on flights and tickets! :? Joy

Re: Dublin Calling

Many thanks to Paula and her organizing colleagues! Looking forward very much to this exciting Event, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones. I'm actually arriving on Wednesday (to sleep off jet lag) and will be at the Landsdowne on Thursday. Now that spring has finally arrived, August doesn't se...

Perhaps they are whitewashed by the sun! Wonderful article... makes me feel very nostalgic.

Re: Leonard's "Homage To Morente"

Thank you, Jarkko. Wow - that is an amazing piece of writing - it is great to have something new to chew on. I am going to re-read it and digest slowly.

Thank you,

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Auckland, New Zealand – December 21, 20

It’s hard to believe it’s been over two months since the concert in Auckland. I meant to write something immediately afterwards, but somehow Christmas, New Year, travelling back to the USA, and life in general got in the way. But it’s given me time to reflect on that evening, and to get some of my d...

Re: Upcoming Leonard Cohen Live DVD

I really enjoyed sitting next to Regensburg in Memphis and I must agree with you and Joy (met you in Memphis sitting next to friends of mine and also in NOLA). I went to six concerts in 5 months and they were all special, however, the spirit in Memphis was tangible. To paraphrase my favorite poet, ...

Re: Upcoming Leonard Cohen Live DVD

I have attended a few concerts, and the more I think about it and read all the comments about the possible DVD coming out (hopefully) in 2014, I have to say that I have never seen an audience and performance like the one in Memphis. EVERYBODY was on their feet, singing and dancing in front of the s...

Re: rumor mill

Is there a betting pool going on which cigarette brand? :) I don't want to spoil your fun, but Leonard already mentioned a brand in one of his intros (I don't remember which concert that was, but Roman probably knows :D), & I'm pretty sure he said it would be "Dunhill". But he already said he might...
