Re: Sharon Robinson

There is a very happy family photo that I noticed on Arlene's Leonard Cohen Scrapbook , which I have linked to here. I spoke to Michael Gold (Greg Gold & Sharon's son) after Sharon's show in Dublin earlier this year. He was a very talented, genuinely friendly, polite and tolerant (of me and my camer...

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

Looking forward to this. I shall (hopefully - all going well) be listening to this on the headphones at the maternity hospital. The 4th - and last (my own too popular problem)! - of my contribution to future Cohen fans is due in October.

I'm really glad they let me take my camera in as Cohen posed for me at the end of the concert! http://awaythelads.com/cohen-lg/content/images/thumb/IMG_3457.jpg http://awaythelads.com/cohen-lg/content/images/thumb/IMG_3597.jpg http://awaythelads.com/cohen-lg/content/images/thumb/IMG_3607.jpg http:/...

That's a very good shot! Wonderful perspective. Intimate. I really enjoyed the lighting and shadows throughout the concert.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LG Arena, Birmingham UK - Sunday 8 Septe

They let me take the camera though - I'm still none the wiser what their policy is?! The policy at most venues is no cameras with interchangeable lenses which they class as professional cameras. I saw someone using a SLR with a small lens about 3 people to the right of me on the front row of the ce...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LG Arena, Birmingham UK - Sunday 8 Septe

A few comments about security. awaythelads commented that he had "the bulk of [his] kit" confiscated on the doors. Sorry awaythelads but what are you doing taking anything more than a compact or bridge camera to an indoor arena show? You should know that you are unlikely to be able to use any "kit"...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LG Arena, Birmingham UK - Sunday 8 Septe

I should be asleep as I have to be up in a few hours for work (have to pay for tickets!). Just to say a M A S S I V E thanks to all concerned for sorting me out with front row seats. I took a few photos. Unfortunately, the powers that be (on the doors) confiscated the bulk of my kit. I don't know wh...

Photos from London, June 21, 02 ARENA

I had intended uploading my (limited) photos from last Friday night's performance, but I'm on holiday in Devon with very limited internet access. I would have had more (better?) photos had the security not firmly insisted that I put my camera away. Fair enough, I shouldn't really have had my camera ...

Ah yes, must mention Alexandra leaving. Sharon Robinson improves with age. Sexy lady - no question about that. What a voice.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LONDON, JUNE 21, 02 ARENA

Back from the concert - waiting for my dinner at the Hilton. Decent seat thanks to all involved with the pre-sale. (Not as decent as the front row for Birmingham in September!). Lovely to be able to travel via ferry. A few tears - fortunately alone, so my daughter couldn't see. I was taking some dec...
