Michael McDermott in London and Holland

. . Heads up to friends in London and in Holland. Please consider going to see my man Michael McDermott, a singer-songwriter from Chicago. He's been making great records for years and is awesome live. And he's a fan of LC-- listen for the reference early in this song: https://youtu.be/94krgCF2Xa8 A ...

Re: New Leonard Cohen biography by Sylvie Simmons (Fall 2012

. . Sorry, did not see your reply. I posted that and didn't come back to check for replies as it is pretty slow around here. It was on special just for the day and is now back to $10.99. My experience with kindle is that once Amazon puts a book on a daily deal they sooner or later put it back on spe...

Re: No New Tour in 2015

. . Ah, darn... :( Haven't been here in a while and I had a dream last night that I missed a tour announcement, found out there were a bunch of presales coming and we were scrambling to figure out if/when/where/$$$? etc... (Though I knew it was only a dream because one of the tour stops was Samoa. ;...

Re: Did I Ever Love You - "major misstep"?!

. . Way back in my younger days, I used to scour every review of artists and albums I like. I'd buy several music mags and listen with the critic's review in mind, trying to gain insight to this or that artist or song. I'd do the same with movies because I was quite a film buff at the time. Then cam...

Nice.

Perhaps we will be treated to a low-key but sly marketing campaign featuring photos of him involved various problems.

Should be a fun few weeks. :D

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

I wish the new CD were a little longer as well. I mean, he spent so much time crafting a song like "Feels So Good" while on the road, why not put together a studio version? I'd have to imagine that a song they've worked on for years would be a lot quicker to record in a studio compared to something...

Re: The PP album cover

. . I took the colored shadows as Leonard's nod or tribute to Kezban, as she has done so much for him over the last few years, and probably is again the photog for the PP cover. But was the lightening and moving of the shadows done simply in order to emphasize the Leonard side of the cover or is the...

Re: Listen to "Almost Like The Blues"

I dont really understand why some of the fine muscians from the tours is no invited. Peter Surely it's a question of practicalities as much as anything else. The members of the band are scattered all over the world, with their own diary and life commitments and it would be almost like organising a ...
