Sorry that it is taking me so long to post on YouTube the alternate/edited version of the 2008 Rock Hall ceremony with different footage of audience reactions to Leonard Cohen. I'm getting there. Maybe someone will beat me to it.

Look forward to your YouTube posts yank... just do it when you can.

Linda scanned/photographed all the Cohen contents -- here is the cd package, and pages from the program booklet. As you can see, there were congratulations ads as well as the Rock Hall article in the booklet. We did not want to break the binding so they are less than perfect, but the best we could get.

Is it possible to get a full scan of just 3rd page that lists Leonard Cohen's tracks?

How big is your computer screen?

Haven't listened to any of it

Will let you know when I do. I would think it would be the studio versions, but the live album also has great recordings.

Gave a listen this afternoon.... some good material on the cd.

For Leonard, Suzanne and Tower of Song are studio versions, Dance Me is from Cohen Live, the Toronto performance.

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Museum in Cleveland is adding a library, which will be completed in 2010.

I've updated the LEONARD COHEN | HALLS OF FAME blog.
http://www.leonardcohenhallsoffame.blogspot.com

I found pictures of Leonard Cohen from the 1991 Canadian music hall of fame and added them.
I posted the front and back covers of the 2008 Rock Hall program, plus the Best Buy and Rock Hall Banners.

The last thing I need is a photo of Leonard Cohen from the 1991 Order of Canada. There is absolutely nothing on the web right now.

Inductees into Canada's Walk of Fame for 2008 will be announced in late May or early June.

Really enjoy the nice work on your site Yankovic.

Any chance you could add author/publication info for the articles?

Thanks for taking the time to bring all this info together.

These are directly from the Halls of Fame websites, if you check the links they don't provide the names of the people who compiled and wrote the bios. These bios are not copyrighted. But the rock hall provides a bibliography.


The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame has updated their site. Each inductee now has their own page.

Here is Leonard's
http://www.cansong.ca/vhof/bio/modern/leonardCohen.aspx

I have updated this link as well on the blog

Plus, Check these pages:

Unlike other halls of fame, the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame updates its inductees biographies as time goes by. They don't change anything, they just add an extra paragraph or two at the end when more important events occur in the artists careers and when the artists die. They also update the timeline. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

The 2008 Rock Hall CD. Thanks to Dick and Linda

They should have pictured the Rock Hall trophy on the bottom of the CD
