Re: Sad news: Arlene Dick has passed away

I'm sorry to read this sad news...I admired Arlene's spirits and enthusiasm, and her persistence in documenting 'everything Leonard Cohen' on the Internet. In Las Vegas 2010 when fans sang "Passing through" I was standing next to her in the first row next to the stage. Suddenly I felt her nudging m...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oakland, March 2 & 3, 2013

We missed both: Dino's good vibes and his music, de gustibus non est disputandum but "Ain't no cure for love" without Dino's sax felt severely mutilated to me, same for "Democracy". Whatever happened between Mr. Cohen and Dino, I hope that the Master just let it go by. http://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oakland, March 2 & 3, 2013

I loved the concert, I loved that The Never Ending Last Tour is still going strong and that Mr. Cohen seems to enjoy touring. At the risk of being "anchored at the bottom of the page" I have to add however that I missed Dino Soldo. We (me and my husband) missed Dino's enthusiasm, energy and his fre...

Re: Leonard Cohen - Multiple Nominations for 2013 JUNO Award

Being a Leonard's fan for 30+ years I always appreciated his music and perspective on life, situation with Roshi Sasaki however makes me think: 1. was 'Everybody knows' written with his Zen Master in mind ? 2. turning our backs on the story by sending it to the "Everything else" corner - don't Mods...

Re: Getting around Oakland questions

I haven't been much to this area, even if I live appr. 50 miles South, but have friends who use BART on a regular basis. It's efficient and mostly safe way of getting around the Bay Area / some stations are better to avoid (Fruitvale is one often mentioned in bad news)/. Among sites worth to see fo...

Re: VIP packages - comments

Ladies and gentelmen, I think your voice has been heard. As I noticed during Oakland presale 'fan club' option produced good seats (I got row L) while at the same time VIP packages came up with seats in same area. Which means 'fan club' buyers were free to buy tickets only or comparable tickets plu...

Re: Interview with Roscoe Beck

A touching interview. I find interesting a link between LC music and Russian music which his mother liked. Since his parents were Jews of East European origin I often wonder if this was the reason he had such enormous following in Poland at the times he was forgotten in US -- is it possible his mus...

Re: PRESALE TO ALL CONCERTS (Except NY) ON TUESDAY (Jan 15)

Why my posting asking what prevents AEG from using BrownPaperTickets has been removed ?? maybe they are too small to handle huge venues but -- smaller Atlantic Canada theaters are handling their own sales, why a little larger American venues cannot do the same (like Paramount Theater in Oakland for...
