Re: Any News on Geoffrey Wren, Yet?

The shock of the news of Geoffrey's demise is softened in that it comes from snowdrop. Death reports are sometimes premature, especially in the internet age Only a few days ago there was a disturbing internet 'death hoax' concerning Leonard - not true of course I certainly hope that Geoffrey will re...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Great poem , perhaps a great song too ! In an interview with Rolling Stone around the time of Popular Problems, he explained how he knows when a song is working. "You can pretty well tell," Cohen said. "We play it for select people, like my daughter – there's a few people who aren't afraid to tell y...

Bob Dylan - Live July 2016

For those interested in what Dylan is doing live these days.

Someone managed to film a whole concert on his recent american tour . Quite an achievement given the high security around taking photos

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

Trying to keep my expectations in check but that last post may have sent me over the edge... I'm sure this album is going to be brilliant , and the observations of those who have heard it support this . Having said that , and if it's not a contradiction, i'm going to work hard to have ' no expectat...

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

The 2 covers are exactly the same apart from the cigarette , so i guess the cigarette was ' photo shopped'- the healthier option . All snippets of information from those privileged enough to have heard the album in Amsterdam will be gratefully received. ...but it is sounds as though exercising more ...

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

When I heard the title, I heard the title I had an ominous feeling that it might be Leonard's "Blackstar", but I see that "You Want it Darker" is the name of the opening track. In the sense of an album the artist knows will be his last , or a release which coincides with the artist's death/ or both...
