Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

Thank you, holydove. Yes, in Axel's first years on Hydra he experienced Leonard writing and talking about his work every day and it must have had some influence on the little boy. However, I do not know how long they lived together as a family on Hydra and thereafter in the USA. What I've read is th...

Re: Rolling Stone: The Playlist Issue

In my opinion there is nothing in the lyrics of FBR that suggests a gay relationship. Also, Sisters of Mercy had nothing to do with nuns, as anybody who has read about the circumstances in which the song was written would know. But as with most of LC's songs, everybody has their own interpretation. ...

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

I read the very interesting biography of Axel Jensen on Wikipedia last night. It was said that he left Hydra with Lena, Leonard's former girl friend, and lived some years with her in Norway. He became a writer of influence and got married to an Indian woman in 1974, who cared for him until he died i...

Re: Two Outstanding Tributes Paid to JARKKO ARJATSALO

Thank you Jarkko and family for keeping Leonard Cohen in our hearts and minds all these years.

What would my life be without this forum which keeps me updated with everything regarding Leonard Cohen, the greatest of them all.

Thank you and best wishes for the new year.

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

The boy on the beach could be the younger brother of Martin Johnston, who was born in 1947 and at the time of the photo would've been 13 years old. A very sad family history of the Johnstons, indeed.

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

I thought it was Axel Jensen on the left, behind the dark man, in photo 1, and again in photo 6, behind Leonard on his left. This I assumed according to another photo of Marianne and Axel sitting on a bench with a dog, which I have in my collection (but do not know how to paste on this site, sorry!)...

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

On October 1, 1960, little Axel was still a baby, so it must have been someone else's son with them on the beach.
I'm also not sure which of the men on the different photos is Marianne's husband Axel Jensen. Does somebody know?

Re: The Remarkable Life of Leonard Cohen: new biography (201

A new edition of Various Positions by Ira Nadel will be released at Amazon in February. I'm looking forward to it. I haven't read Reynolds' book yet (waiting for the promised second edition in the hope for better proof-reading), but recently finished Harry Rasky's book, which I would only recommend ...

Re: Quick question re the Bird on a Wire film

If I remember correctly he said it was kind of European troubadour style. His music has been throughout his career very popular in Europe and especially France, where it was said that if a French woman had to buy just one record, it would be a Leonard Cohen. But I will have to go back to the film to...

Re: Cohen, Dylan, and Waits work together on NEW XMAS CD (JO

Oh, what a good laugh I had! A "Christmas" album like that would be great fun. I would love to see a photo of the three of them sitting together somewhere - but I guess that will never happen.

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

'Bird on a Wire' is now available from Amazon.uk again, after being out of stock. I ordered it when there were only three left, and within an hour the last two were gone as well. So hurry up if you really want it.

Re: Adam Cohen speaking about an upcoming art exhibition

I love this interview - what a fine, intelligent young man Adam Cohen is. Really can't wait for his new album. I listen to all his previous cds very often and love his work. Hopefully his new album as well as his father's art works exhibition will be highly successful.

Re: Leonard Cohen: Hallelujah: A New Biography by Tim Footman

I read the book a few weeks ago and did enjoy it. There are some interesting new information (for me) as well as nice photo's. I picked up a few minor details which could be inaccurate as far as my knowledge goes, but in general this a good read. What I didn't like at all is Appendix II, pp 215-228,...
