Re: Leonard Cohen's health

Agreeing totally about privacy and how public speculation is to be discouraged, including speculation on a dedicated forum such as this. However , i am sure we have all thought about how and why , in what way Leonard left us , and we will all have our speculative ideas. There is absolutely nothing w...

Re: Where did Leonard take you - your story

Thanks for the thread ...really good question! In terms of his later work , writings , interviews and most of all those magnificent ' late life' concerts he helped with fears of ageing , and ultimately of death .The last album is the pinnacle of this , and i was looking forward to the next. A role m...

Really hope that , in the fullness of time, there will be a tribute concert somewhere I can easily get to .

Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

Just been announced that Dylan has decided not to attend the ceremony. Not a surprise but a disappointment. Can't help but imagine , had things been different , what a witty , humble and elegant acceptance speech Leonard would have made . But in the real world he wasn't awarded the prize , and he su...

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

I'm sure we all dislike these rumours about the exact circumstances of the death , at least one of which we know to be untrue. A clear account from trusted sources of what happened is probably the only way to stop the rumours , but if those close to leonard want to keep this private that has to be f...

Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

I can't possibly know of course but I think that Dylan would have been find with Leonard getting this recognition, just as it seemed Leonard was when Dylan was awarded the prize. There was more a sense of mutual respect than competition. It's good that Dylan made his extensive comments about Leonard...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I was shocked and very saddened at Bowie's death , but somehow Leonard's passing seems more personal - almost like the death of a family member. Maybe that's why i also feel a need to know more about why and how he died. Helps the move to closure on such a major felt loss I hope that doesn't sound l...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Sorry if this is brief. Got the physical cd today and played it so far once on a rather good hifi . First hearing , since I resisted the streams. It's rather good isn't it ! The depth of lyrical content and Leonard's voice match. Love the production - don't have any initial dislike of production tha...

Re: Concerts 2017

But why, if I may be so bold, why not Jarkko? How can you be so sure, that there won't be a single show ahead anywhere anytime? In the newly surfaced press conference video , Leonard looks somewhat frail, though otherwise in great form. It's hard to imagine him deciding to do any shows. https://www...
