Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Hello Everyone, I am a newbie here too. Don't know just when it happened--don't know just how it happened, but I can't get enough of this man and his music and poetry. When I heard about this new concert tour in Eurpoe I said to my husband "Ahem, honey, Leonard Cohen is starting a new concert tour ...

Re: A Banjo interpretation

Hi Avi, I think I'm missing some vital piece of information: where did you come across the reference to this lyric being a derivative from hurricane Katrina or is this your postulate? ;-) Cheers, Andrew :) Oh no, I am not that original. I was just repeating what Leonard said: He [LC] is reluctant t...

Re: A Banjo interpretation

...There are many people who, like Leonard Cohen, start contemplating immortality/death at a very young age For me it was 19. I recently had dinner with the childhood friend who, at the age of 16, loaned me a tape titled "I'm Your Man" by an artist I never heard of before. He's a doctor now (the fr...

Oh don't feel bad. I already have (through no fault of my own) 3 CDs, and I haven't bought any concert tickets yet!

Re: A Banjo interpretation

Reminder: while we are all mortal, Mr. Cohen is (as far as we know) in good health and will (hopefully) live for many more happy and creative years. Let's hold the eulogies and farewells and just enjoy the work.

Re: A Banjo interpretation

It is a fascinating interpretation! Thanks for sharing Andrew. If we're going to peel the layers of this song, it is probably worth it to mention the outer, most obvious layer: "Banjo" is a song inspired by the tragedy of hurricane Katrina. It has a very distinct New Orleans sound, and much of the i...

Can't wait to see him in Dublin this year (If I get a ticket :) :) ), getting anxious about the ticket hunt alrea...

Re: The Muse of Laboratory lithograph as giveaway with CD!

Mine also arrived today - USA to UK in just 6 days....so much better than Sony's effort! Thank you Kelsey!! "USA to UK" can be misleading; Kelsey ships from Washington State, so your lithograph spent quite some time traveling from the West to the East Coast (Approximately 2400 miles / 3900 km), whi...
