Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

Well I was part of Avi's crew project in that I edited all of the letters (a lesser role than some I'm sure, but it took some time I can tell you), and no one gave me a pass! So I think there was more to it than that. But thank you those who have shared their experiences of being there. All I can s...

Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

Scubasam, I think it is more interesting to see who has not made a comment about the backstage passes on this thread. ;-) Now that you mention it Marie, how very unusual for a thread (any thread...) to remain untouched like this! :shock: I agree Chesire gal, given some of the voluminous cavity-indu...

Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

I would like to tell my experience concerning the meet and greet and backstage passes. I am also one who was never quite sure if I wanted to meet Leonard. Even though I knew it would be a thrill for me I always thought does he really want to have another besotted woman standing in front him like a ...

Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

Not trying to be a sh** stirrer here- I wasn't even in Vegas- but I wanted to bump this thread up. I know LisaLCFan was not the only one who felt that way. It would be nice if all the secrecy surrounding the Vegas backstage/greenroom/after-party access was lifted... After all, if Leonard sanctioned...

Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

There is no substitute for a genuine chance meeting provided you are not interrupting anything. Leonard may not remember it for long afterwards but it most certainly will not be "hollow and meaningless" to him at the time. I hope you get your opportunity one day Diana. Wendy I want to clarify that ...

Re: Would you pay to meet and greet Leonard Cohen?!

I know I'm on a touchy subject here, but absolutely NOT....ever. Not even for charity. I'd donate the money and hit the road. I've never had the awesome, extreme, wonderful pleasure to meet Leonard, but when it does (or might) happen, I would like it to be low-key, quiet, personal, and private. Las...

Re: The Forum and Facebook

Paula, I also find the overly sickly sweet natterings some use on here and other places extremely offensive, but given my experience, I do not believe they are genuine at all. I have no problem with bluntness (being from South Africa, I am missing the PC gene), but I also think some things are simpl...

Re: NEeMA at Joe's Pub

If I may interject. Nadine (Neema) is a woman...very much her own woman. She has no connection to any Egyptian queen...and I personally find no physical connection to Lizzy Cohen, except perhaps the wildness of her hair. She is totally and absolutely her own woman. Her songwriting ability is awesom...

Re: NEeMA on tour in US

Well, I expect I will get a verbal smack in the eye for this but I just don't understand what the fuss is about, there doesn't seem to be anything special about her. Her poetry and music is uninspiring, nothing awful, just ordinary. Harsh, but acceptable criticism in my opinion. ...As long as they ...

Re: NEeMA on tour in US

I was not at the show but Neema sounds great in these videos and I'm kind of surprised at the negativity. I see no evidence that this performance was less than stellar. I'm actually not sure Neema needs to be compared to "folk singers" at all; her style, like Leonard's, seems to encompass rock, pop...
