Re: Special Leonard mention in art exhibition

Bev, I’m glad I could answer your question and it’s a pity you aren’t able to see this exhibition, as I know you’d really enjoy it too. :?

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Special Leonard mention in art exhibition

Today I took in the fabulous art exhibition of Robert Owen, ‘Blue Over Time’, at Heidi Museum of Modern Art, here in Melbourne. Robert is a famous Australian artist, who was a fellow resident with Leonard on Hydra between 1963 and 1966. He is mentioned several times in the informative book ‘Half The...

Re: Ladies Who Sing Leonard - Memo Music Hall

Thanks Bev, but upon checking, I see there are only standing spaces left... still tempting, but common sense may prevail, as standing for so long would reduce my enjoyment of the concert. ;-)

Cheers,

Re: Article about Michael Gudinski/Frontier Touring Founder & LC

In relation to Michael Gudinski, the Frontier Touring Company promoter of Leonard “down under”, sadly he passed away on March 2nd. :( R.I.P., Michael Gudinski. Because he was so iconic in the Australian music scene, there was a State Memorial funeral for him last night here in Melbourne. The proceed...

Re: Dick Straub has passed away

Oh dear, I’ve not checked in here for awhile and am very saddened to hear of Dick’s passing. :( He was such a convivial man, indeed a delightful Cohenite... I recall him with great affection and I always saw him as one of the crew who have been at the forefront of our Cohen world, both online and at...

Book-stack promo

Our national broadcaster, ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), as part of its evening TV news segment has a Finance Report by Alan Kohler. Alan makes these reports more interesting than the subject matter might suggest, with a quirky witty approach, and of late he’s been featuring a book-stack...

Re: Australian Ladies Tribute Concert to LC Anniversary Nov 7th

Bev, I strongly recommend you and whoever else is able to catch this live-streaming concert, as Junk and I really enjoyed the venue-based concert that this seems to be modelled on (with the same name), which we attended at the beginning of the year 8), though the artist line-up is clearly different ...

Leonard’s praises sung, on radio

My son Tim sent me the link below to Episode 6 of a cool radio show hosted by Laurie Anderson, called Party in the Bardo, which some of you may be familiar with. Tim described the show itself as “quite spacious, poetic and reflective - perfect for lockdown”. 8) Anyway, he sent it to me because Lauri...

Re: The Demons of Leonard Cohen

In addition to Maarten’s and yopietro’s foregoing comments, the following quote is from my friend Clive, whom I shared this discussion with, being a classicist and linguist during his academic life.
