Re: Concerts 2017

I'm sure for most of us there is no one we'd rather see on stage , but it's not going to happen.

Leonard - we miss you !

Re: New Leonard Cohen biography by Sylvie Simmons (Fall 2012)

#1 in terms of current sales?
Curious , 4 years after it was first published- obviously reflects current interest in Leonard :D

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Well the restraint is helped by the geographical limitations of the streams.
I would have to use a vpn to get any to work , which i could do but haven't bothered.
The 21st has been in my diary as a special LC day for some time , so may as well keep it that way .
Thanks for all the reports .

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

He wants to live to 102.
Obviously finding a way of coping with the current challenges of his version of 82!

Correction ....120... :lol: :D

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Great reassuring pics and quotes.
But a delicious dilemma whether to play the stream or wait for the cd ?

Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

Great news , and as the first songwriter to get the literature award, setting a precedent.

Of course leonard also deserves this ,but shouldn't take away from
Dylan's achievement.

Re: 'I am ready to die' - New LC interview in The Gurdian today

I'm sure that being ready to die is quite different from wanting to die, or any clear prediction that death will come soon. Interesting to hear him talk of the comforting aspect of putting affairs in order in the later stages of life, and in his case this ideally involves completing a lot of unfinis...

Re: Cost of "You want it darker" on Amazon.co.uk

The amazon price has to be a mistake - i think they will find nobody will buy it for that price , not even if delivered in 10 minutes by a drone! Also available for £9.99 in the uk from HMV. I think i may do the old fashioned thing , and go buy it in person from an actual store while there are still...

Yes it was in 2010- apologies for the mistake.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Welcome news and a Happy Birthday to Leonard. Hopefully there'll be another tour. I realise this is your first post but did you read the piece properly? There can't be another tour, LC at 82 with ailments that 82 year olds (and younger) get could not in any way sustain good health long enough for a...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Possibly the disciplines of all the time on Mount Baldy , which in the secular world we call 'mindfulness' is still helping living with the physical pain as well as reducing the potential for psychological pain. So glad to hear he is experiencing joy in the moment inspite of the inevitability of wha...

Re: September 2016: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' new album + a film

Thanks Davee , and hope you are well too .
I sometimes bump into you in the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
I guess that for both Nick Cave's and leonard's new albums we can recall Dylan's line

Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
