You don't stop for breath I have never ever known anyone who can ramble on so much and say so little.

Why do you defend yourself so violently I am not attacking you.

I forgot to sign in as I am sure you will guess the previous posting was mine.

In my humble opinion an argument and a discussion are one and the same but one has more passion

There you go getting the wrong end of the stick again. Liz you have not offended me. You have irritated me slightly simply because you are of the school of thought "why use one word when a hundred will do". I really enjoy debating a point unfortunately you would rather labour it. But as I do enjoy a...

When I instigated this thread the first reply posted was from Liz. I didn't agree with what she said and I didn't agree with her concepts but each to their own. Further down the thread Liz commented on Shyones message I actually agree with Shyone LC's songs are not meant to be life changing merely l...

Hi Kush No I do not only know his Guthrie inspired songs. I listened to a lot of Dylan in the 60's - 70's and I went to see him in concert a couple of times. I didn't much like the stuff after he became a christian it lost a lot of its edge. But as you say tastes change and so does the edge of songw...

I was not suggesting that Leonard merely pulled a word from the air to fill a gap, He does however have brillant songs and not so good songs. The words of Joan of Arc are exquiste however the words of don't go home with your hard on are absoulute crap. I consider that a filler song. Also some of his...

I think your answer is exactly my point. Sometimes poets write the poems in a certain way just because they rhyme and there is no hidden meaning. You are creating complexity where I don't think any is intended. LC thoughts just flow on the paper and I am sure some of it is just filler I also notice ...

A snippet of info "Sisters of Mercy" This was written in a few hours one winter night in a hotel room in Edmonton, Alberta. Barbara and Lorraine were sleeping on the couch. The room was filled with moonlight relected off the ice of the North Saskatchewan River. I had it ready for them when they woke...

Why do you feel you have to analysis LC's music so much

LC has a gift, we all have the same language with which to say things. LC's gift is he can put that language into exquisite prose, but the way some of you talk you are making him into a godlike being. He is the one and only person I would really like to meet in the world but even I do not try to ele...

I lived at Clapham, London when I went to those concerts. I tried to go to one concert a week of any good artist but LC is not any good artist he is the best. If you have never heard him live you might not appreciate that his voice is actually better live and his dry sense of humour comes out in all...

I have seen LC in concert from 1970 at the Royal Albert Hall on numerous occasions, Victoria Palace, Hammersmith Odeon and Isle of Wight

I can honestly say on all occasions he far exceeded my expectations. The only thing is he is the encore king and I missed my bus home a few times.
