Re: CONCERT REPORT: New York City, NY - December 18, 2012

We were also pleased that one of our heros......Bill Bradley, sat just a couple of rows in front of us. For those not from around here, Bill was an amazing basketball talent who helped the NY Knicks to a couple of championships before becoming a very popular senator representing NewJersey. His seat ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: New York City, NY - December 18, 2012

Agree MSG was wonderful. Looks like same set list as Boston. LC and band all in fine form. Love the old ideas songs, Sharon killed with Alexandra for huge ovation. LC maybe got biggest reaction for a fantastic Democracy with Jews harp, and Hallelujah. Am sure Brooklyn will be special as well. Return...

Re: Hallelujah on 12 12

Thanks Tirok and Mirka -- while I disagree with Rodin, I can understand how the faithful can be offended, and respect their right to express their opinion. Not a new circumstance for me, since I became a Cohen addict from Natural Born Killers, and the use of Waiting for the Miracle, brief Anthem cli...

Re: Hallelujah on 12 12

The show cut to Brian Williams right after the parody concluded. He noted that he didn't know for sure whether or not LC had blessed the Sandler version, but in fact LC would be bringing his show to the Garden on the 18th!

Re: NOW: MORE MEMBER TICKETS TO TORONTO (Dec 5)

Wow Toronto can be so appealing...... Linda and I have very fond memories....Toronto 2008, our FIRST live Cohen concert and our FIRST meeting face to face with wonderful fan and webmistress, Marie M.

Re: let's make lc bio a best seller

I agree Wendy and John -- it should be read first. Got mine on the 18th and have devoured it. Don't think any fans are going to tout Nadel or the few other Cohen books over Sylvie's far more in-depth treatment. First the depth, then the prose that so effortlessly keeps you entranced. Devlin's book a...

The book will be listed in the NYTimes Book Review section as a best seller on the 7th of October. We can all help stimulate sales and interest in it by posting a 5 star rating and short re...

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

Good work Di! Had similar urge, but didn't act on it in one of my local Barnes and Nobel stores. I even needed help to find it -- there were 5 copies available -- but on the bottom shelf in Music between something on the Kinks, and another book on Dylan. No Author, subject, or title scheme to the pl...

Re: New York Times Review of "I'm Your Man"

Got my US edition last night -- so impressed that I ordered the UK version from Amazon UK this morning! Think there are more pictures, and they are interspersed throughout the book rather than grouped into one center section.

Sylvie done great!
