Re: Tried to exchange tickets

I tend to agree with Ilion on this. A few rows back can often be better for perspective and sound, and you avoid the paparazzi at the front. I was eight rows back for Leonard at Wembley last year and it was excellent (in this case, I opted for row 8, when I could have had row 5). There should be no...

So keep on coming you newbies and all you reborn again Cohenites, without you there would probably not even be a tour, so muchos gracios to you all. ;-)[/quote] I've no idea where you get the idea that some people are 'newbies, 'born again Cohenites' or 'Hallelujah Harpies'. I don't like the name ca...

Re: BBC Radio Scotland - Leonard Cohen Special,1st Jan 2013

It was a 55 minute radio programme for Christ's sake! Not a big in depth meaning of life and death discussion. Get over it.

Re: BBC Radio Scotland - Leonard Cohen Special,1st Jan 2013

Happy New Year to you too Maarten. I enjoyed the programme too. OK - my New Year's resolution is to become a Hallelujah Harpie (or more of one than I already am). I only have tickets for the O2 concert so for, but will make a point of going to McDonald's on the way to, and again after, the show. Get...

Nothing wrong at all. Just thought the term Hallelujah Harpie didn't come across as a compliment.

Re: BBC Radio Scotland - Leonard Cohen Special,1st Jan 2013

What is a "Hallelujah harpie"?
What's the problem with people finding Leonard Cohen after 1969, 1979 or 2009?
The more new 'fans' the better. Keeps the music alive.

[quote][/quote] John Etherington ..... Sylvie mentioned that when Leonard took time off from Mount Baldy, he would watch TV, drink good wine and eat McDonalds (I think she also mentioned that in the book). Surely Leonard would never eat at such a disgusting establishment as McDonalds? I ate there on...

Re: When,Where,And What Was The First LC Song You Heard?

I was pondering this the other day. Thinking about it, I remember hearing 'Chelsea Hotel' at a young age and wondered what the hell it was on about. My older brother was playing LC album - New Skin For The Old Ceremony. I must have been about 9 or 10 at the time 1975/6. My brother is 8 years older t...

Re: Signet Ring

Those Saint's bracelets are widely available. Cheap £1 shops and charity shops sell them here. (Scotland). We must be a heathen (or staunchly Protestant??) lot here in the Midlands then because I have never seen one in the £1 or charity shops. In fact, I had never seen one period until Leonard star...

Re: Official Leonard Cohen iPhone Application

Actually, it was much more interesting when there were mysterious lengthy gaps in Leonard's career, like the six year gap between 1979 and 1985. The way things are going there'll be Leonard reality TV before too long! I might actually put the TV on if this is the case. Can't be any worse than the g...
