Re: I met Bob Geldof at a Leonard Cohen gig and wrote a song

Beautiful. I've never seen that before. As it happens, it was Bob Geldof who first introduced me to Leonard Cohen when he was a DJ at XFM.

Leonard Cohen and Bob Geldof

Greetings, fellow Leonard fans! In the summer of 2009, I was fortunate enough to get tickets for Leonard Cohen's open air gig at Brooklands in Surrey. The traffic leading to the arena was awful and a storm gathered as we took our seats - but the rain and thunder only served to add to the drama of th...
