That's a very nice story.
These must have been the 2 Dublin concerts on March 5th 1985 - part of the various positions tour.I wonder if any forum members attended the afternoon concert and can remember this ?

Sadly I must be the other side of the coin. I have shaken hands with Leonard on a few occasions and it has never assisted me in playing any musical instrument nor afforded me with a voice to sing any of his songs.

Oh and Glen, however did you place Van Morrison ahead of Tom Waits? :roll:
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Fascinating theory this fellow has about energy transference between people. Who am I to question these things? However, Mr. Hansard ought to learn that if one is extending a "trinity" to include a fourth individual, "quinity" (his word) would actually refer to "five", not four. Depending on one's inclinations, "quaternity" or even "quadrumvirate" would fit the bill.

'Quinity' is correct, Lisa, by the way. 'Cause Leonard counts twice.

Actually, based on the way that many people speak of Leonard, he really ought to count as three. In which case, Mr. Hansard would end up with a "sextity", which seems rather more fitting in the context of Leonard Cohen, don't you think?

Sadly, I can't come up with a funny answer.
