Re: Bench updates


This cannot be happening.... :shock: :shock: :shock:
Two years of negotiations to build a bench ? I agree: the project should be taken somewhere else, where local authorities will appreciate the idea.

"Hallelujah", a new Polish wedding tradition

Last couple of years a new tradition emerged in Poland: during a wedding ceremony in church "Hallelujah" is performed, often with a new translation, lacking sexual overtones of the original Leonard's text. The new tradition became so widespread that in some dioceses of the Catholic church the bisho...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

. Terrible loss, a piece of my life just vanished. His music remained a constant in my life, when I moved from Poland to California 30 years ago, among a few possessions I brought with me was a box of cassette tapes with his music.

Re: Possible to get a private concert?

. I would say the third best thing is to comb YouTube for numerous private clips from his tours, maybe the quality isn't always the best but they convey the vibe quite well. For example this clip from last concert of 2009 tour: https://youtu.be/tioLvJ3DmUg or clips from his first concert of 2008 to...

Re: The Re-Tooling of Speaking Cohen

the attorney demand money, lots of money, for the alleged copyright infringement. This matter is not settled so I cannot speak of it specifically. Wouldn't it be a good idea to raise that money together on the forum, if necessary? I mean if we were able to collect enough money to buy a bench as a p...

Re: What has happened to 1 Heck of a Guy?

. That's a terrible news ! boths sites are closing at the same time, in a similar manner, promising to be opened as private sites ? ....
